No book ever came close to changing my life. Some got me thinking hard maybe but not to change my views entirely.
The Christian Bible did not make me an atheist.
I was a teen-age douchebag not because of Salinger's novel.
And I'm certain I didn't turn out sporting the alternative lifetsyle/orientation because of Oscar Wilde. Ha-ha!
I appreciate all these gamut of philosophy-cum self help books by who-else-but Coelho and his legion but I guess it's not my cup of tea.
The Art of War notable for me though. And yeah, those goddam Cisco books!!!!!
