27 books that can change your life forever | The IndependentA few months back, one of our customers sent us a special request for a list of 10 books we felt everyone absolutely must read in his or her lifetime. The question intrigued us and we immediately launched into a heated debate. Should the Bible be on the list? No text has influenced Western culture more, but might it be equally important to read the Koran or the Torah for a more enlightened worldview? How could we whittle down our list to just 10 books? As it turns out, we couldn't. We posed the question to our fellow book-savvy colleagues and, after receiving some 1, nominations!

10 Life-Changing Books that Will Stay With You Forever
Most successful people read. It can be harder for busy or ambitious people to justify reading literature though. Of course, fiction can change your life and teach you just as much as any non-fiction book to say nothing of the research that connects literature with improved empathy. Some of them are classics, some are pop-favorites but I think all are very good. Hopefully they do the same for you too. We live on the innocent and monstrous assurance that we alone, of all the people ever born, have a special arrangement whereby we will be allowed to stay green forever. I read this book as I waited for my wedding to start.
Books can be incredibly powerful. They have the ability to suck us in, take us on adventures, and influence the way we think. They can teach us, move us, give us new perspectives, and help shape us. And the most powerful ones change our lives forever. I asked my Business Insider colleagues to share the one book that has significantly influenced them. I'm usually grateful for this, but not always! It also made me appreciate fatherhood more.
There are books that entertain, books that inform, books that enthrall - books that speak to the brain, the mind, the intellect and the emotions. These 10 masterpieces fall into the second category. Each is a pleasure to read, a treasure to ponder, and ultimately changes something deep inside of you - just for having experienced it. Read on. But his quest takes him in a different - and far more satisfying - direction, to learn how to listen to his heart and follow his dreams.
