100 Must-read Life-Changing Books by Nick Rennison Novels which transform our ideas about human possibilities. Don't you just love books that lead to reading more books? What about books that actually change your view on life? 100 Must-Read Life-Changing Books is a guide of titles widely ranging from fiction, non-fiction, memoirs, self-help, history and more. There are well-known authors highlighted as well as not-so-popular writers. I admit if it weren't for this book, I would not have added some titles to my TBR pile. So I highly recommend this guide for serious readers looking to broaden their personal library and open to discovering a life-changing book.

100 Must-Read Life-Changing Books. A real eclectic group for sure. Novels, poetry & lots of non-fiction. From 6th century BC China to modern bestsellers. Some of these books I personally would never read (like Richard Dawkins whose vitriol towards Christianity I don't understand, & I'm Pagan!), while others would do nothing for me (I'm too cynical for most new age touchy-feely books).

Good guide to classic books.

I thought this would be a full size book, but nobody told me it is only a very small book 4 inches x 51/2, a little mini book. No where does it even say that and the picture is misleading. Otherwise I guess it's OK. Nothing special.

I’m a bit of a fan of ‘titbit’ books that you can pick up; gain something useful from by way of inspiration, information, motivation and probably any other of a hundred other words ending in –ion; and put down without worrying about losing your place!

This book certainly fulfils that criterion. The author begins by asking, at the start of the introduction, what makes for a ‘life-changing’ (?) book and then proceeds to answer this question in the remainder. This makes for an interesting short read in itself. However, he appears to make an assumption, which is evidenced abundantly in the subsequent discussion and which he fails to acknowledge; i.e. that such a book must, necessarily, bring about a change for the better. This, of course, implies that he knows what ‘better’ is! One criterion he does posit, even though possibly only implicitly, is the number of lives changed and he goes on to justify, later on, the inclusion of J. K. Rowling’s first Harry Potter novel, by citing the number sold and therefore, by extension, the number of young people ‘switched-on’ to reading fiction whom otherwise might never have been. This is, of course, a contentious claim in itself but, possibly, one with which many might agree. In which case, one could reasonably argue for the inclusion of Mein Kampf, which has probably never been out of print and is probably one of the World’s best-selling books. However, it doesn’t make the cut!

Most reasonable people would not expect to find all of their favoured tomes inside and it was in this spirit that I approached it when opening it for the first time. Yet I still found myself applauding the author when he had included something which, in my estimation, deserved inclusion, and railing against him when one of my favourites was missing!

But to cut what could easily be a long story short: it’s an excellent little book that can be picked up at a ridiculously low ‘snip’, especially the kindle version!
