You should have asked "other than the Bible" because so many will go for that low hanging fruit. We need an "in addition to" book. And don't get me wrong, mine is on my nightstand, but it's kind of an obvious answer (for not all, but many).

The BIBLE!

There is a reason it's been a Best Seller for years. If people would pick it up they wouldn't need the self-help gurus.

No book has changed my life. 

I have applied the wisdom I acquired from reading many books and I changed my life ... not the book.

One good book led to another and then became so many. I learned bits & pieces from them all too. Interesting to note that at some point: I wrote six books of my own that have influenced people's lives & still do. Life is good

The Bible.  No other book guides my walk with God and keeps me on course to do the things He's called me to do.

I used to read a LOT and I am not interested in fiction books, so I would not be able to pin only one single book, since there are hundreds I love.

My library is vast and there have been so many that have contributed in so many ways.  Seems like I am gaining a new gem of knowledge every time I pick one up.

I started working before "women's lib" reared it's head, and had to fend for myself in corporations with pretty much all men in charge.  So, ludicrous as it might seem now with the "Me Too" movement, I read the Helen Gurley Brown books on how to survive in my personal and business world.  My path in those days was international advertising and public relations in the tourism industry.
