bookworms vs. nerds - article/blog

what do you think, kids, does this explain me? a recent study by the british psychological society found that the "more fiction a person reads, the more empathy they have and the better they perform on tests of social understanding and awareness. By contrast, reading more non-fiction, fact-based books shows the opposite association."

So us fiction lovers that have been shoved into a world of caselaw are likely to lose our social understanding and awareness? Yeah, guess it's true - law school makes us pretty miserable, lonely, selfish people. All that for over $30k a year!
