    That's a VERY difficult question. There are so many books that have had a profound effect. Right now, these two come to mind: How to Talk Dirty and Influence People by Lenny Bruce, and Out of Body Experience by Robert Monroe. No, there's another one: Walden by Thoreau. They all helped me look at the world from different viewpoints.

    I'm sure there are more. Some of Mark Twain's essays come to mind. And...

    No single book. I have been reading since I was four, at various times in my life there has been a book or books that have had profound affects on me, the most notable of these was the Encyclopedia Britannica.

    Revelation, Its Grand Climax At Hand! Published by The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society...Jehovah's Witnesses

    This was the book I was studying when I realized that I had finally found the group of people who taught what the Bible really teaches.

    Hmm tough call, there have been some very good ones. Probably the most profound so far has been "Witchcraft, Theory and Practice" by Ly DeAngeles. I highly recommend it.

    the first time i read the history of the church by Usebius, i wondered at the reason why it wasnt cannonized? its just as good as the book of acts. When i read the book of mormon I know there is much faith inspiring acts within its pages of faith.

    The book of Enoch has remarkable sayings.

    The Doctrine and covenants too are mind blowing.

    Also when i first read the book URANTIA i was blindsided by the alternate story of genesis and the multiple designs of galaxies
