Books on computer topics acquaint readers with useful information about everything that is directly related to computing devices (computers, laptops, smartphones), the possibilities of working on them (shell programs, utilities for all occasions), as well as the use of modern gadgets for earning money (photo processing, video editing, website promotion (SEO) and groups in social networks (SMM), etc.)
Why is computer literature still in demand?
Many people, especially from the younger generation, often make statements about the fact that modern society does not read. Accordingly, what is the use of a book about computers when there are sites and forums with useful information, and on YouTube you can find many videos on various topics.
Indeed, one cannot deny the emergence of new ways of acquiring knowledge. And to argue that the video is often clearer than information from a book about computers, too, will not work. However, the abundance of these sources of knowledge is just a serious problem for the following reasons:
- There are a lot of websites about computers. In fact, there are so many of them that it is difficult to find and choose one of them. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the dates of writing articles on many web resources are not set, which is why the user often does not understand how relevant information he is receiving.
- There are also many forums about electronic gadgets, and the atmosphere on them is far from friendly. If you ask for advice or ask a question, they usually throw in so many answers with sarcastic comments that any desire to study the chosen topic will disappear. But you still have to sort out information somehow. In general, there are more difficulties than confusion.
- Another significant drawback lies in the lack of systematization of knowledge, which is offered by books on computers. For example, a person wants to learn how to work in Photoshop. There are millions of websites, forums, videos on this topic. But they are usually created by those who have already forgotten what it means to be a beginner. Therefore, getting a general idea of how to work with this popular photo editor is extremely difficult, and acquaintance with individual techniques does not give anything in the future.
If we take computer books, then the information in them is systematized by qualified teachers who know how to present an idea. In addition, the textbook contains all the necessary data on the topic, and at any time you can return to the study of a particular chapter in your usual rhythm. This is more convenient than watching a video where the speaker does not adjust to the listener, and therefore you often have to pause, rewind, etc.
