Críticas:

The 71 authors offerhappy hoorays and heartfelt blessings
"Boston Globe"
"The Book That Changed My Life" takes a refreshingly populist approach in this collection of 71 lively favorite-book essays... A welcoming and inspiring book about books that will engage teens curious about books and writers, or in need of an unthreatening invitation to experience the pleasures of books."
"Booklist"
"What I love about Coady's "The Book that Changed My Life" is the way it captures a passion that has been muted by earthly concerns about money and competition and sell-through; like a lot of us, these authors clearly love books and its biz."
Sara Nelson, "Publishers Weekly"
[Coady and Johannassen] have compiled a wonderful cross section of contributors and a wildly diverse group of books. From the Bible (Sen. Joseph Lieberman) to To Kill a Mockingbird (author Wally Lamb), the contents of this book will encourage quick perusal, a checking of titles, or the generation of a must-read list.
STARRED "Library Journal"
Bet you cant read just one.
"Hartford Courant"
After years of hosting authors and writers of every caliber, level of fame and expertise, Roxanne Coady has finally joined their ranks.
"New Haven Register"
"Editor Joy Johannessen and bookseller Roxanne Coady have gather together a star-studded roster of authors... [whose] passion for their books is downright contagious, making you want to rush to the shelves to pay homage to your own personal bests."
"Cookie Magazine"
" [A] stunning collection of original essays."
"Pages"
A Connecticut bookseller and a New York publishing vet corral an impressive assemblage of noted writersto contribute brief essays on the one book that they will forever remember. Many of the pairings of writer and book are delightfully unexpected (Nelson DeMille on Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged!"). Of course, many classics appear among the favorites, but this anthology also contains many remarkable books that merit rediscovery, such as Sebastian Junger on Dee Brown's "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.""
