I've a question for the non-academic philosophers. What book first aroused your curiosity or interest in philosophy? For me, it was "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" and Nietzsche's "Ecco Homo". I'm curious, because a friend of mine, with no background (other than maybe a course or or two) asked me for recommendations. My first thought was ZaMM, and I thought "Consolations of Philosophy" might be good, but I've never read it. I also thought, "Sense and Goodness without God" would be a good start, but I don't know their religious background.

For me it was when a roommate who was taking a class in philosophy and recommended a book by aurther schopinhour lol sorry for the mis spelling but I believe any book that would challenge conventional thinking. Prehaps even something that they would disagree with. But whatever the case something that challenges them to think and question.
