“There's nothing better than a remarkable person who writes a remarkable book that can affect you in remarkable ways.”

Welcome to Part Two of The Books that Changed our Lives.

This time, Mike and Gay are focusing on different types of books than they did in Part One.

Some may surprise you, including Shakespeare’s Sonnets, Poetry, and Fiction, that can take you to a completely different world.

And as usual, Gay always blows Mike's mind, so he ended up buying a whole bunch of new books before they ended the episode and now Mike has a gigantic reading list to tackle. (They're all linked below.)
