Thanks Jeff, I actually contemplated posting this at skeptics but wasn't sure. I'm looking forward to finally seeing an answer to this question.

comment What is the scientific support for Einstein's claim about the negative effects of reading too much?
Well I think he is implying that you can read too much, because the more you read, the more likely you are to suffer from some of the negative consequences of reading.

@RobertHarvey, I think the book was even written by a literature professor. I see the irony you speak of, but I think he is suggesting that too much reading is bad, not all reading is bad. But even if he was suggesting all reading is bad, one could think of it as a book to end all books. It is the toss up between reading this one book and never reading again vs reading hundreds of books that could cause harm.

And a review of the book is found here: fourmilab.ch/fourmilog/archives/2005-11/000613.html

Nevertheless, I have found a book on the internet which also seems to support the idea that reading can have negative consequences: amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0882297457/fourmilabwwwfour
