  • The Shack
    The purpose Driven Life

    Pretty sure these didnt change the world but they were read by alot of people and motivated or changed how people think.

    What about a parenting book? cant think of any but maybe a popular doctor or Dave Ramsey Money Makeover..that has made a difference for alot of people.

  • Check out this book for some ideas:

    "Books That Changed the World: The 50 Most Influential Books"
    By Andrew Taylor

    I have not read this book, but if the title is true it should have some good ideas for you.
