Mental Health Book? Where to start, so many good books, Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, Robert Bly, Robert Moore, Michael Meade, William James, Freud, Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob, and innumerable scholars and authors since.
The tough part of talking about good mental health books is that technology has made the gathering of knowledge and the publishing of knowledge so incredibly fast, it takes real self-discipline to read one at a time.
And now I can get my books delivered to my computer from any number of sources.
For example, this book,
Brainfit for Life, can be purchased in a hard cover or e-book version. I have the e-book, and can use my computer to scroll right to the paragraph I want.
However, as a kid getting used to reading, I would sit on the front porch in a rocking chair and read by the hour. What a great way to close out the rest of the world.
I still do that on occasion, but it is hard to make the time.
When I lived in Bloomington, near Illinois State University, I would go to Milner Library to pass the time.
I might head back into the stacks and read some old history text, just out of curiosity, to see what that scholar had to say.
Now the library stacks are online, at Amazon, or Abe Books, or Learn Out Loud or Hear2Read, and you can finds to links below. Search by author or topic, and find out about Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thousand Faces, the study of the initiatory journey.
