I just posted an article
here by a prisoner about how books changed his life.
Nearly everyone has had the experience of reading a book that gave them a new perspective, that radically changed their experience of themselves or the world. Many of us have experienced this more than once! Unlike watching television or even reading the news, there is nothing like a great book to change the course of your thinking or even your life.
What one book has changed your life? Perhaps there was a spiritual book that inspired you to begin meditation practice, or a novel that changed your ideas about human nature, or perhaps a book really woke you up to the seriousness of the prison industrial complex.
Please share your book (or books) and how it changed your life in the comments.
