    There isn't a "set of books" that will make any person "smarter". A person can become "smarter" by making a habit out of reading in general. A "set of books" , no matter how popular they are for whatever reason, will not make a person any smarter than the next person who reads the same amount of material in even the most general sense. For example: a person who reads a lot of books on real estate will likely become smarter in that particular subject than the person who chooses to read books in astrology. Whose to say that one is smarter than the other?

    If you seek wisdom, don't just read whatever list of books other people highly recommend. Because it may turn out that you hate the literature. Read books on topics that you are genuinely interested about and you will fly through your readings which will give you a better understanding of these subjects and hence, make you smarter a person.

    That's my take.

    I thought this was going to be a "knowledge isn't intelligence" post but it was actually more pointless than that
