This book contains contributions from many Scottish-based writers. The premise of 'The Book That Changed My Life' is simple: each contributor chooses one book that influenced him or her more than any other, gives a brief synopsis of it, then tells how and why it had such a profound effect.
In addition to contributions from stalwart Scots such as actor Brian Cox, poet/novelist Tom Bryan, 'No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency' author Alexander McCall Smith, and 'Metallic Dreams' author Mark Rice, lesser-known writers and celebrity Scots have their say about the books that altered their lives. The result: honest, exposed and heartfelt recollections of books which have the potential to widen one's worldview. With over 70 contributors recounting some of their most profound reading experiences, chances are you'll discover some new literary avenues to explore...ones that will perhaps change your life too.
