I don't know if reading this book would've changed my life because I didn't read it, but I did get a job while I had checked it out. I had to turn it in before I could read it as so many others were waiting to read it.

Obviously there is no one book that works for everyone, but it certainly seems to be working for me in this moment of my life!
It helped me to let go of things: material, as well as internal concepts.
Maybe it might work for you!
The cover certainly was a turn off, but people have been known to come up with some pretty truthful expressions like: "You can't always judge a book by it's cover!"

This book recommended more self-help type books than reading for enjoyment type books. I was expecting something more along the lines of Book Lust or something. It had some interesting recommendations, but it is really for someone looking for ways to motivate himself/herself or to self analyze and find one's true calling.

Excellent! Snapshots of the books that made a difference in peoples lives.

Just like reading book reviews from people who really recommend these books.

Entertaining yet lots for your intellect.
