What makes a good book?

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“What makes a good book?”

A good book is an impactful book.

The value of a book is the practical value you derive from it, measured by the impact it has on your life.

An unimpactful book has little value regardless of how good the book.”

“What about the experiential value of a book?”

“Think of an average past experience. 

Average here has a double meaning. It means both ‘common’, and ‘lackluster’. 

What if you’d never had that experience?
Would you have lost anything?

The book-as-experience, absent impact, is replaceable with any other average experience.

An impactful book is irreplaceable.”
