What non-fiction book or documentary has *really* changed your life?

Please don't use this question as a chance to preach your old beliefs... Don't say "Fahrenheit 9/11" unless you really mean it...

Likewise, don't say anything by Ann Coulter just because her books are inflammatory to liberals.

    "The Demon Haunted World" by Carl Sagan. I was given a very religious upbringing and until I read this I really had no clue that there were enough people out there like me (rationalists, freethinkers, whatever you want to call us) to actually have publications and organizations. It helped me find those people so I could start socializing with them, which was a very liberating experience. It really did change my life.
