The Book That Changed My Life: 71 Remarkable Writers Celebrate the Books That Matter Most to Them by Coady, Roxanne J.

Now in paperback, a delightful collection of essays on the transformative power of reading In The Book That Changed My Life, our most admired writers, doctors, professors, religious leaders, politicians, chefs, and CEOs share the books that mean the most to them. For Doris Kearns Goodwin it was Barbara Tuchmans The Guns of August, which inspired her to enter a field, history writing, traditionally reserved for men. For Jacques Pepin it was The Myth of Sisyphus, which taught him the importance of personal responsibility, dignity, and goodness in the midst of existentialist France. A testament to the life-altering importance of literature, this book inspires us to return to old favourites and seek out new treasures. All proceeds go to The Read to Grow Foundation, which partners with urban hospitals to provide books and literacy information to newborns and their families.
