Nowadays,colleges and universities give people many opportunities to study in class with other people, as a matter of fact, some people became more and more depend on the knowledge gained from books. "practice is our best friend", I think it is time for people to pay attention to the knowledge outside the books.
The first reason to support my point is that we cannot study everything from books. In fact, we have studyed many things without a book. How we learn to walk and run? How we get to know how to speak and read? We studied that by our experience and through oral, even after we learned how to read we still have to depend on practice or learn from others occasionally,books is only a method of learning not everything.
Obviously people can get a lot of things from books, the books are writen by other people who maybe give you their experience and let you have a short cut to learn knowledge, but if you only depend on this without your own experience, you cannot get the most of it to improve you own insight and improve yourself, the best way is practice or talk with someone else after reading, from this way you will sure find something new which you never think of when you read the books and you can truely digest the knowledge and make the most of it.
Generally speaking, there is no wrong to read books to get knowledge, but as foremetioned, It is more sagacious to get knowledge by both from the book and you own experience.
