Or that  the earth’s supply of gullible optimists may well be infinite.

My Age of Anxiety, by Scott Stossel - book review: An unflinchingly honest account of anxious times

Scott Stossel first saw a psychiatrist aged 10. Since then, he has tried 27 medications and many different kinds of therapy in an attempt to assuage his anxiety-related problems. This book is an account of his own experiences, together with a history of anxiety-related disorders that stretch back as far as Hippocrates in the fourth-century BC, and takes in Plato, Spinoza, Kierkegaard, Darwin, Freud, and many eminent 20th-century authorities on the way to the present day.
