I recently had an old friend told me that her life was changed dramatically after reading a certain book. (I haven't gotten to ask which book yet.) But I wondered if anyone else has had this happen. Has it happened to you? What book or books have changed your life or the way that you perceive things? And how? Please share!

A book that changed my whole view of the world was "Revolution from Within" by Gloria Steinem. Before reading it, I had low self-esteem. After reading it, I felt like the world was much smaller and not that scary as I thought it was. I recommend it to anyone, especially to women, as unfortunately, they are the ones whom suffer most.

some years back I asked my friend about a film he saw. His reply was " my mind was completely empty after seeing the cinema". A book will be useful if your mind becomes with of thoughts after reading the book.

I am apt to reading books on management and stock market investments. I feel that every book i read has its effect on the way i work. I also keep a summary of the books i read and go through them sometimes to just freshenup my mind. A book on value enginering led to do some important changes in the machinesetup of our organisation which helped in cutting down the expenses significantly.
