Just say, “I can’t explain what it’s about. But believe me, it’s a book that has fundamentally changed the way I see the world, and you really can’t understand where I’m at unless you read it.” (Or whatever you feel about it.) The key point is to decline to “explain” it. By quizzing you, they’re looking for a way out, and if you give it to them, they’ll take it.
