There's nothing better than a book you can't put downor better yet, a book you'll never forget. Jack Canfield, cocreator of the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, and selfactualisation pioneer Gay Hendricks have invited notable people to share personal stories of books that transformed their lives. What book shaped their outlook and habits? Helped them navigate rough seas? Spurred them to satisfaction and success? The contributors include Louise Hay, Stephen Covey, Malachy McCourt, Jacquelyn Mitchard, John Gray and Rhonda Byrne (author of international bestseller The Secret), to name just a few. Their richly varied stories are poignant, energising, and entertaining. Author and actor Malachy McCourt tells how stumbling on a tattered biography of Gandhi in his youth offered a shining example of true humilityand planted the seeds that would help support his sobriety decades later. Bestselling author and physician Bernie Siegel, M.D., tells how William Saroyan's The Human Comedy helped him realize that, in order to successfully treat his patients with lifethreatening illnesses, "I had to help them livenot just prevent them from dying." Actress Catherine Oxenberg reveals how, at a midlife crossroads and struggling with bulimia, a book taught her the transforming difference one person could make in the life of anotherand why that person, for her, was Richard Burton. Rafe Esquith, the awardwinning teacher whose innercity students have performed Shakespeare all over the world, recounts his deep selfdoubt in the midst of his successand how reading To Kill a Mockingbird strengthened him to continue teaching. Beloved librarian and bestselling author Nancy Pearl writes how, at age 10, Robert Heinlein's science fiction book Space Cadet impressed on her the meaning of personal integrity and gave her a vision of world peace she'd never imagined possible. Two years later, she marched in her first civil rights demonstration and learned that there's always a way to make "a small contribution to intergalactic harmony." If you're looking for insight and illuminationor simply for that next great book to read YOU'VE GOT TO READ THIS BOOK! has treasures in store for you.
