The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
The Prince by Machiavelli
Not particularly unique but disillusioned me in a lot of ways.

How to Lie With Statistics by Darrell Huff
Replay by Ken Grimwood
Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon

Feeling Good - this was the number one book that taught me cbt and how to get shit done by educating me about moods and habits. I often found that a lot of other self help stuff ended up crossing into this book's territory.

Flow - this taught me how important experience and attention are, and helped me decide what i wanna structure my life around as an adult. i had a panic attack reading one chapter because it goes a little too in detail about the self.

What Color Is Your Parachute - This was extremely helpful in showing me how to boil down what I want as a career, and to understand what skills I actually have

Nonviolent Communicaiton: The Language of Life - this taught me how to understand and communicate better with others using empathy.

The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up - this changed my relationship with stuff and how I view the objects I own.

Starship troopers
A Game of Thrones
I have no mouth and I must scream

Watership Down-Richard Adams
Treasure Island- Robert Louis Stevenson
Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy- Douglas Adams

Fuck your self-help bullshit


>Anna Karenina
At the ripe age of 12 I was slapped by the reality of what love really is
Just thinking about Levin kills me, but it kept me grounded and stopped me from being a drooling fool for love

Congo Mercenary -Mike Hoare
Ride the Tiger - Julius Evola
Revolt Against the Modern World - Julius Evola
Not a book but if you can find "king, Warrior, Magician, Lover" as a 20 page or so pdf. That is a fucking amazing one.

Demian - Hermann Hesse
The Stranger - Albert Camus
Post Office and Women - Charles Bukowski
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep -Phillip K. Dick
Mother Night - Kurt Vonnegut

The Giver - Lois Lowry

Never met another Aldiss fan on Jow Forums! Have you read the Helliconia series?

In a good way I said. I read Evola and if anything I got fucking depressed, but maybe that's just me.

The Stranger and The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus, that shit and a bit of therapy stopped me from commiting suicide, it's awesome.
