The Novel Cure: From Abandonment to Zestlessness: 751 Books to Cure What Ails You - Susan Elderkin, Ella Berthoud

I love the idea of a book doctor, one who prescribes fiction as an antidote for many of lives ills. This is a book about books, tells one what books to read if one is feeling a certain way or facing a certain challenge. Not only does it names the books but it describes why that particular book was picked. Many classics, many I never heard of and too many that I added to my TBR. 

Well written, loved the layout of the book and how it is presented. This is a book I will probably buy as it is a great book to have as a resource and there is just too much in it to remember. Someone told me that there is actually such a thing as a real book doctor, who charges 30.00 per hour. I want that job.
