The Value of Reading

Following on from my previous quote from Piper about TV, now a comment which presents an alternative...
Since we all live in a world created by television, it is almost impossible to see what has happened to us. The only hope is to read what people were like in previous centuries. Biographies are a great antidote to cultural myopia and chronological snobbery.
(John Piper, Don't Waste Your Life, p.121)
