Someone recommend Eckhart Tolle "The Power of Now" and told me it would change my life. I'm starting it tonight and I really would love a life-altering book.

Have you read this? What did you make of it?

Do you have a book that was THAT IMPRESSIVE that it changed your life?

I'd like to hear about it.

    The Bible.

    Probably impacts most westerners the most reguardless of if you've read it or not.

    Call it the Walmart effect.

    I've read The Power of Now. It's a good read, but was not a life changer for me. I've read countless books on philosophy and religion. I've taken something from each. If a book contains just one piece of the puzzle, for me it's worth reading. I would recommend reading Tolle slowly with time between reads to internalize what he is saying. It can get a bit thick.

    Be Here Now by Ram Dass

    Ayn Rand- Atlas Shrugged was the most life changing for me, but The Fountainhead and We the Living were also very moving.
