"Tim was so learned, that he could name a horse in nine Languages.
So ignorant, that he bought a cow to ride on."  Benjamin Franklin

In the wake of a study showing that “self-help reading can help people with common mental health conditions,” the Society of Chief Librarians and the nonprofit Reading Agency came up with a list of 27 books to make you feel better. “It is hoped those with ‘mild to moderate’ mental health conditions will try out the idea before turning to prescription drugs -- many of which can have unpleasant side effects,” the Daily Mail writes. Most of the books on the list, however, are not “self-help” book at all, but works of fiction, history and memoir that have strong literary qualities and that are especially hopeful in their portrayal of the human condition. ...       “Reading for Mental Health, but Not Self-Help',
