There are many, but the one off the top of my head is "The Alchemist".

I have read it at least ten times (it only takes about two hours). It's something like meditation in a book for me, it allows me to reset my mind and gain perspective whenever I am overly stressed or anxious.

Edit: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

By whom?

Google gives me numerous books with that title.

Paulo Coelho, edited the post to include that.
