Reading Is Good, But There’s Even More To It

If you think about it, reading is an impoverished way to learn anything. We can learn to read the squiggles on a page, but we are made to read people. We watch how people move, listen to how they use their voices, watch what they say and do. From that we learn about the thing they are doing, and what it means to them.
