Life Changing books

A Listmania! list by Mac_Cat "MacIntosh Man" (Austin, Texas United States)
The list author says: "I'm a technical reader with a passion for Sci-Fi, murder mysteries, and a heavy dose of technology. I've enjoyed scuba diving, flying (general aviation and the US NAVY), travel, and I used to customize cars (VW bugs). Reading has to bring me new knowledge and experienced to be enjoyable and memorable. I love and collect music, as well. Sports is about the only category I don't frequent."
The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind
1.  The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind by Julian Jaynes
The list author says:
  "This is the single most though provoking book I have ever read. It's one of the few I re-read from time to time, because Jaynes artfully explains the sense of human conscientiousness of a sentient being, in terms that explain historical facts and thinking, and how we have evolved physically and psychologically to something that is so hard to prove, but so much a part of everyone of us."

Story of O
7.  Story of O by Pauline Reage
The list author says:
  "Born and raised Catholic, I spent a great deal of my youth devoted to the faith and most of my adult life trying to come to terms with it's contradictions and institutional iron.  The hedonistic backlash into today's underworld takes its validation from ancient Catholic and pagan rituals, sexual roles, and mysterious acts of torture, self-mutilation, martyrdom, and sexual oppression."

Damon Brown's Simple Guide to the iPad (iOS 7 Update)
9.  Damon Brown's Simple Guide to the iPad (iOS 7 Update) by Damon Brown
