It is true that not everything that is learned is contained in books, also it is true that knowledge gained from experience with knowledge grained from books. It seems that both experience and books are important for us to learn knowledge. But which one is more important to us? Different poeple have different opinions, but in my opinion, books are more important than experience. Books can help us to learn knowledge more safely, more easily and more efficiently.
