"Engaging and stimulating, these recommended 100 non-fiction and fiction titles will encourage thought and endorse calm, and well-being."
A fascinating collection of books lies within these pages. From fiction and poetry through to memoirs and books on nature and science, psychology, history, and philosophy, the one hundred books recommended in A Therapeutic Library have been selected as they can help promote well-being, a sense of calm, and fulfilment. Well chosen illustrations accompany the titles, and sit beautifully alongside the text. The School of Life state: “The truly well-read person isn’t one who has read a gargantuan number of books; it is someone who has let themselves be deeply shaped by just a few well-chosen titles”. You will see that some of the books contained within feel as though they belong, that there could have been no choice other than to include them, and yet you may find yourself considering different thoughts and reasoning than you would have expected. Then there are perhaps some surprising choices, such as The Highway Code 1931, the explanation of why this book was chosen struck a chord as I read. I absolutely loved turning a page and greeting The Tiger Who Came to Tea, written in 1968 by Judith Kerr, and Pippi Longstocking written by Astrid Lindren in 1945, and the reasons for the inclusion of both of these books encouraged a good ponder. The writers of A Therapeutic Library confirm: “We’re not suggesting that all the books discussed in this book are for everyone…We are in search of the books that can cure our particular ailments”. This recommended collection of books has been collated for the very best of reasons. A Therapeutic Library reassures, emboldens, and inspires as it celebrates the one hundred books within.
