    Default deserve to be minded

    Hello
    This book deserves to be minded.
    What does minded mean here?
    People should think about the book
    People should be interested in the book
    Can I say John deserves to be minded or this usage is not correct
    Thank you so much

    Not a teacher.

    It means the lessons or advice or instructions given in the book should be followed. ("kept in mind")
