The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists
I've had more than a few women that have read this book tell me they think every guy should read it. It's not nearly as shallow as it sounds. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I don't know if I'd call it life-altering, exactly, but it certainly offered me a few new perspectives on relationships.

(Okay, I'm never on here and when I am I mostly lurk, but I had to jump in on this one 'cuz the book is seriously worth the read.)

The Nancy Drew series. I learned that even in your own tree house, you are unsafe from prying eyes of neighborhood girls.

I asked for Hardy Boys.

Msg. 143, 144 & 145: CL, it would appear that your the post button on your keyboard is rather sticky, hence the duplicate posts. May I suggest that you start typing with both hands instead of just one hand?

I read the Power of Now by Eckhart and I didn't quite understand what he was getting at. Some people claim to understand it, but I think they understand it even less than I do. He seems to repeat a lot of the same ideas. Be in the moment, moment, moment, moment............ If you go to the Oprah website, you can do tutorials that go with this book according to my hairdresser.

I find acting out Lear or Hamlet - all roles - extremely cathartic. Today, I played Gloucester and fell to the floor howling when Cornwall gouged out my eyes. However, I am open to being helped by self-help books, even though I am probably beyond help.

from Msg 138

"Descent into Madness, the Diary of a Killer"by Vernon Frolick.
ISBN is 0-88839-321-0.
Published by Hancock House. 1993

To my surprise I learned that Oros also recorded in his diaries his relationship with a hunting guide and his son. I went to school with and played with the son when we were kids.

While the book may not have been deeply life-altering for me, it has been a noteworthy and very compelling read.

Mr. Fletcher Day, the hunting guide, passed away today.

Rest In Peace.

Long ago, in a time almost forgotten ( high school ) I read a book called "The Afghan Horsemen" it opened my inexperienced eyes to the richness of cultures outside my own. More recently in a time of personal crisis I read Eckhart Tolle "A New Earth". It lead me out of my culture of ego generated insanity to a new life of awareness. What a relief.

Other books to enjoy...

Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins -- the importance of breathing
Stranger In A Strange Land by Robert Heinlein -- the necessity of laughter
Ringworld by Larry Niven -- the beauty of science combined with imagination
The Sinbad Voyage by Tim Severin -- the wonder of high - story

So many books to read so little time.

i'm glad this thread was resurrected, by accident it seems,
but I find it odd....I have read quite a few of the recommendations
but the book I would choose, if I had to choose only one, is Steinbeck's Cannery Row, I re-read it every once in a while when I need it.
I will certainly be looking into the books recommended herein however

I LOVED Steinbeck when I was younger. Read and reread all of his novels so many times. East of Eden was my fave. I also do the self help thing now but can't help krislitten with any dating ones.

I have thought about doing some research and writing one myself: Dating with dignity. I would have to do lots of interviews though...which may be helpful even if I don't write the book.

not life altering, but:
"Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

by Susan Cain

Crown Publishing Group | January 24, 2012 | "

It was a good book for people who hate self help books.

Made me lose the guilt for feeling some of the ways that i do about people close to me.

This book more than altered my life...

I was 16 and big on true crime mom gifted me a book, I couldn't even tell you the name of the book.
It was the picture on the book...Clifford Olson. He killed 11 children in B.C in the early 80's.
My sister and I excepted a ride from him...thankful to be alive.

My life altering book was "Cujo" by Stephen King. I was 11 years old. It was the first book I read without pictures and have been addicted to reading since.
