The proliferation of seforim, and for that matter English seforim (and for that matter English seforim on halacha), in the last 20 years or so is mostly a blessing. But it has its drawbacks as well, chief among them the gobs of poor seforim. Poor can mean poorly written, poorly explained, poorly reasoned, or all three.

At the bookstore recently, I saw how many new books had come out and was amazed at the sheer volume(s) of new material. I must admit that when it comes to reading, I prefer things on the lighter side. I don't need someone telling me about tragic situations or how difficult life is why would I pay money to get depressed?
