Re: Is there a book that changed your LifeIt's a spiritual book in my case
Re: Is there a book that changed your LifeI guess that as well as the books I mentioned a couple of years ago on this thread, Catch 22 by Joseph Heller should be up there. My teenage friends fell into two groups - those who loved Tolkien, and those who loved Catch 22. The Tolkien group tended to be wannabe hippies , while those of us who liked Catch 22 were the political rebels. Until reading Catch 22, I hadn't fully understood the cynicism and inhumanity of the profit motive. Strange that some 57 years after its publication, a Milo Minderbinder figure (with less intelligence) has become president of USA Inc.
Re: Is there a book that changed your LifeIt was my father who encouraged me to read "The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists" and although it did not change my life, I do believe that every MP should have to read it before entering the House of Commons.
