Books that changed the world

Did you check out last night's Jennifer Byrne Presents: Books That Changed the World, Volume II, shown on ABC 1?  

Filmed at the Perth Writers festival, a wide and varied list of books was chosen by panelists. Books included Darwin's "On the Origin of Species", "The Odyssey" by Homer and "The Quran", and even the "The Hunger Games"

It was an interesting discussion on the power of the written word, and what makes a book a world changer.

You can catch up on the discussion on the First Tuesday Book Club website

What would you pick as your book that changed the world?

What about a book that changed your life?
