What Books Have Changed Your Life?

What books have you read that have changed your life? I'm currently reading a book that blows me away...

" Another well known example of spontaneous intuitive insights are jokes. In the split second where you understand a joke you experience a moment of 'enlightenment'. It is well known that this moment must come spontaneously, that it cannot be acheived by 'explaining' the joke, i.e. by intellectual analysis. Only with a sudden intuitive insight into the nature of the joke do we experience the liberating laughter the joke is meant to produce. The similarity between a spiritual insight and the understanding of a joke must be well known to enlightened men and women, since they almost invariably show a great sense of humor. Zen, especially, is full of funny stories and anecdotes, and in the Tao De Ching we read 'If it were not laughed at, it would not be sufficient to be Tao'.

-Fritjof Capra The Tao of Physics

Tell some jokes today...
