One of those books I'd personally put in the "changed my life" category, it is genuinely one of those texts I think everyone can find something in. I've glanced over the first few chapters of the originally published "On the Road" and personally I'd recommend this version if you're given the choice of which to read. It retains all of the potency, imagination and dynamism Kerouac's work had when he first composed it and leaves his prose as fluid as possible.

It's not a book for everyone and, while it had a profound affect on my interpretation of life and literature, I'd recommend atleast reading a few pages before buying it (some don't approve of Kerouac's style or subject matter). One of my favourites.
