"For every piece of good advice there is someone who needs to hear exactly the opposite advice." - This is so true! Love your posts for how candid and pithy they are!

For the recipes I very much think that you can skip to the recipe.

But I absolutely agree on the advice front. Same goes for the "this book could have been a blog post". There is a lot of value in presenting the same advice from the different points of view and context so that somebody can easier incorporate into their own life.

"Don't be stupid" is a great advice but more context is needed to get more actionable approach.

But sometimes specific actionable approach is a gateway drug to higher understanding. When the only way to reach better understanding is through practice than the best way is to have somebody practicing quickly. And the best way to do that is to jump to the recipe.
