They say that it's mainly women who read fiction and when men read, which is not nearly as much as women, they tend to read non-fiction.

That's my experience from talking to the people I know, and I think it's a terrible shame. You learn so much about humanity and the human condition by reading GOOD fiction and I know it's given me a much greater understanding of my fellow man and of myself.

If a few more of the top people in our society, men or women, were readers of fiction, I'm sure the world would be a much happier place.
