Arnold Bennett was a well-known English novelist, journalist, and theatre critic. His best-known novels were "The Old Wives' Tale", "Riceyman Steps", and "The Clayhanger Trilogy". Bennett also wrote a number of books of genial advise: self-help books as they are called today. His "How to Live on Twenty-four Hours a Day" was a best seller and remains in print. "Self and Self-Management", while partaking of elements of advisory content, is, really, a collection of six engaging essays.

Not one to shrink from giving advice, one will find some of that in each of these, but they may be red as examples of good prose essays ... dipped into for pleasure, rather than therapy. But, anyway, I always feel nothing is quite so therapeutic as a good read, especially with an author as congenial as Mr. Arnold Bennett!
