Thanks I'll add some. I usually add lists that I stumble upon. Will look for some later. If you have some in mind you can post in the comments here :]

Lobstergirl The first three books are spam, if you care.

Lobstergirl Author spam/circle jerk books:

#2 Blue Coyote Motel
#3 Phenomena: The Lost and Forgotten Children
#4 Time To Let Go
#10 What's Behind Your Belly Button? A Psychological Perspective of the Intelligence of Human Nature and Gut Instinct
#11 Conditions

All of these authors are notorious, and I do mean notorious, for circle jerking their books onto lists.

Sorry. Moving house for the second time in three months. Have not been very active. Took care of those.

Nente Is this a proper list for The Gambler? It's a very convincing portrayal of the gambling addiction.

Sheryl Hill For those who have struggled with mental illness or know someone who does, these books are a must-read:
—The Body Keeps the Score by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk is a best-selling, compassionate book by one of the world's top experts in mental illness. The book describes the physiology of trauma, many case studies, and new non-pharmaceutical treatments. Note: the case studies involve some graphic descriptions of atrocities.

—Trauma and Recovery by Dr. Judith Herman is a classic on the history of the treatment of mental illness: how Freud was pressured into retracting his discovery that his female patients were victims of childhood incest (resulting in the cruel psychoanalytic practice of blaming the victim), the use of borderline diagnosis as a pejorative substitute for PTSD, trauma in the military, etc. Note: the Recovery section is out-of-date.

Good fiction can reduce the need for medications by distracting ill readers from their pain. Please vote on and/or add suggestions to this list of healing, humorous books: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1...

Monica Starkman As a psychiatrist-novelist, I find this list interesting and useful.
There are very few fiction books that are truly good reads and at the same time give a true picture of psychiatry, patients with mental illness, and psychiatrists. "Ordinary People" is one of the best, I think. I tried hard to add to these with my novel 'The End of Miracles'. The professional and reader reviews indicate that I succeeded. As a psychiatrist, it is so interesting to me to see the different reactions of people, and what appeals (or doesn't) to them about the same book. Truly, as readers we are all reading a different' version' of any book.
