A Facebook friend recently asked me to list the 15 books that most altered my way of thinking. These weren't necessarily the best books I'd ever read—although a few from the list qualify for that distinction as well—but, rather, the ones that most altered my world view or changed my viewpoint on a particular subject.
Books that altered my way of thinking (in no particular order):
- The Catcher in the Rye
- Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country
- Blue Highways: A Journey into America
- Fast Food Nation
- The American Way of Death Revisited
- The Millionaire Next Door
- Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage
- The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War
- What It Means to Be a Libertarian
- Let Us Now Praise Famous Men: Three Tenant Families
- Atlas Shrugged
- The Grapes of Wrath
- Of Permanent Value: The Story of Warren Buffett
- American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson
