Hi I'm curious as to what you mean by "weaker" - does this mean it teaches fewer concepts or it teaches them less well, or maybe that the concepts don't stick as well in reader's minds? Would the more widespread appeal of fiction be able to account for this (say, lower probability of retention complemented by higher numbers of readers)?
