Reading Can Seriously Affect Your Health (I)

I am just cataloguing a book that has a notice on the back saing: “WARNING: Professional counselling is recommended should symptoms of unresolved trauma result from reading this book”.

I should probably mention at this point that it is a book on “bullycide”, ie bullied children committing suicide rather than facing another day of bullying/harassment.

Not that I mind, but then shouldn’t that notice be on most coming-of-age novels, books on psychological disorders, and most motion pictures?
