Lots and lots of people replied to Phillips' message, and, over time, the One Book List was formed.
I often paged through the list back in the 90s when I was looking for a good book. The wisdom of the crowd is an excellent way to find the best of anything, I think.

I'd love to hear any commentary you care to include on why you chose this book above all others.
