The Lessons of History

The lessons of history By Will and Ariel Durant

A concise survey of the culture and civilization of mankind, The Lessons of History is the result of a lifetime of research from Pulitzer Prize–winning historians Will and Ariel Durant.

With their accessible compendium of philosophy and social progress, the Durants take us on a journey through history, exploring the possibilities and limitations of humanity over time. Juxtaposing the great lives, ideas, and accomplishments with cycles of war and conquest, the Durants reveal the towering themes of history and give meaning to our own.

I personally loved this book. History is a mandatory ingredient for all humankind. Without learning history you are forced to practice it again. Many of us don’t have enough time to read hundreds of books about different eras of history. Also, we cannot always learn about the history thoroughly. This book is one of the greatest I’ve founded ever, which tries to tell you what was right and what was wrong throughout the history. There are parts where the author does not do any judgement, but only tries to justify.

Here is the Amazon link, for those who like to buy and read this book:  BUY FROM AMAZON!
