Life Changing Books and Films: Read/Watch these & increase your wisdom

A Listmania! list by Frank Bacolas "lamourtal" (New York, NY USA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Every item in this list has positively affected my life and helped me grow as a person. Some, more than others.

In order for an item to have made this list, I had to feel like I had an epiphany after digesting its contents and that my wisdom had just increased and my eyes were opened just a little wider (and in some cases, much, much wider).

Some of the items had very little effect on their own, but in conjunction with other items on the list, they fit like pieces of a puzzle to help make the picture more clear. In those cases, I will point out which supplement each other well...

With only a 400-character allowance, I'm not able to truly explain why you should read/watch them. Take my word for it."
