    Hmmm. Maybe the whole joke was meant to be situational comedy or something... <wanders off confused>

    Franny & Zooey
    Brave New World
    the Bible (both because it's spiritually significant to me and because I've spent a lot of time reacting against it)
    Julian of Norwich's Revelations of Divine Love


    I'm not sure that I'd say the His Dark Materials trilogy changed my life, but it would have, maybe, if I'd come across it earlier.

    ...Wait a second... you were... making a joke! yay! yay! SW made a joke!
    No, I was serious. You should let them influence you, but not quite that much.

    Well said. This is what I meant by "maybe not for the reasons people might think."

    How the Mind Works by Steven Pinker
    Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond
    A Conflict of Visions by Thomas Sowell
    The Retreat to Commitment by William Warren Bartley III
    The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins
    Conjectures and Refutations - Sir Karl Popper

    The first two helped get me thinking, the third broadened those thoughts, the fourth solved a difficult problem, the fifth was intellectually inspiring and the last was enlightening.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    Yes. More realistically, it should be entitled, "How has SW changed your life?"
