And STILL not on the list, the best selling book EVER...The Bible!


--------------------
After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

The bible is the greatest story ever told.

The best book is Candy by Tery Southern.

It was one of the most controversial books of the sixties.

Check on this classic.

A Brief History of Everything: By the Smartest Man on the Planet, Ken Wilbur

The Book on the taboo against knowing who you are: Alan Watts

The Tao Te Ching

Probably the biggest one on the list, The Lesons of Don Juan: by Carlos Castaneda (I also include all the subsequent Castaneda books, but did not feel like listing all of them.)

Introduction to Metaphysics: Martin Hiedigger(i know, i probably spelled it wrong, i cant spell to save my life) This book got me into philosophy.

The Bible: Cant exlude this, You can read this through and through and come up with all kinds of meanings, depending on how you are thinking at the time, i prefer to go through it and look for all the times they are possibly refering to the use of psychedelics. it's a lot, a whole lot.

Carlos Castaneda was a big liar.

There never was a Don Juan. HE made it all up and that ruined the magic of the books.

The book is the Teachings of Don Juan:: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge.

I have posted the Richard De Mille works here over and over . They are inthe archives here somewhere at the shroomery.

i figgers the one book that messed my mind the most was a paperback copy ("hot off the presses")(given to me by my dad when i was like 11 years old & had read pretty much all the available heinlein juvenile novels, and the "lucky starr" series by asimov & most of the andre norton stuff at my local ibrary) of:
_stranger in a strange land_
(mine da also gimme his pb copy of henry miller's _tropic of cancer_ just because it was a banned book in some places, but i never managed to finish wading thru that turgid prose :wink: ... but heinlein's _stranger_ i have returned to quite a few times over the next 4 decades of my life...)

Yep. Stranger in a Strange Land was a classic, for sure.

Apparently it is now available in its original un-edited form. Heinlein's publisher had originally asked him to trim it down some before it was first published -- in those days there was concern that an overly-long Sci-Fi book was unsellable.

Next time I am on vacation in the real world I intend to get a copy.

i will say one book as reading it led me to everything else i've ever read or done:
Tao Teh Ching by Lao Tzu.
Zhuangzi's short stories are great as well.

i took a philosophy class and learned quite a bit about thinking about thinking.  Nietzche, Sartre, Descartes, and all those other many people throughout the years, had some interesting things to say and i kinda like the way it makes your mind bend to grasp some of their ideas.  yeah, i bet that makes good sense. fuck.  anyway, as far as books that made a lifelong inpression, I'd say The Hobbit, which I read in fourth or fifth grade.  brings on good thoughts.  i read the Doors of Perception in high school around the time I started taking acid, and it made things kinda click. If you can dig that.  Cool-e-o :smile:

oh, and if you want to fuck your head up sometime try reading a book called House of Leaves. Sorry, I forget who wrote it right now. Crazy stuff, though.

Life-changing in a more subtle way:
Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
Survivor by Chuck Palanhniuk
Life After God by Douglas Coupland

"Illusions" by Richard Bach. I wouldn't say it "changed my life" but it definitely gave me some philosophical insight. It's one of those books that's telling a completely different story than the one you're actually reading.. the story you're reading is just a vehicle to get you to the actual concept the book is trying to convey...
