My Top 10 Life Changing Books

I was challenged by a friend to list 10 books that have stayed with me in some way. Don’t take more than a few minutes and do not overthink it. Not necessarily classics, but ones that have affected you in some way.

There are so many other books I ought to have included on this list. Oh, well. What is done, is done.

I think for next year’s books I am going to try to read some of the books friends included on their lists. (The collection.)


  1. I guess I forgot I made a stab at this list earlier this year, but never published it here or Facebook. That list is somewhat similar.

    1) A Brief History of Time
    2) The Universe in a Single Atom: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality
    3) The Odyssey

    The new books from older list:
    4) The Edison Gene: ADHD and the Gift of the Hunter Child
    5) My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey
    6) The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less
    7) Utopia
    8) How We Believe: Science, Skepticism, and the Search for God
    9) Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed
    10) How the Mind Works
