Or, at the very least, had a profound effect on your life in some way?

Not long ago, I asked my Facebook friends to share with me books that had changed their lives. My friends came through. I will share this list in four sections, including any books that you might want to add to the list.

So, here is the first installment of "Books That Have Changed Lives."
