  • May 20 2013: I was an avid reader of myths, fables, and fairy tales when I was young, so I would probably give the prize to some Greek and Roman mythology anthology...I don't know which edition I had.

    The reason I think this was the most influential is because so much of it is referenced in other reading that has influenced me greatly. Namely,

    Plato
    Montaigne
    Nietzsche
    Jung
    ...just a few, but the list is long.
