Not all the books have to be so practical. Richard Branson, the famed Virgin founder, often comes back to this classic from John Steinbeck. In it, the author drives along roads big and small, embarking on a uniquely American adventure where he finds racial hostility, tranquility and loneliness, along with the unexpected kindness of strangers. "It opens your eyes to the small pleasures of life, and the great wonders of humanity in the little moments that matter," says Branson.
