The Lessons of History - Will Durant / Ariel Durant

I just finished this book - The Lessons of History. It is an amazing read.

It is a short book and an easy read. It is like a historical commentary on different aspects of life. It presents it's conclusions as sweeping generalizations - but I'm sure the basis is statistical review of historical events.

He talks about the history of life (biology), history of government, history of race, etc etc. It is an eye-opening, mind-boggling book (if you are into this kind of stuff).

A must-read for history buffs. Here's the amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Lessons-Histor.../dp/143914995X

Click above link so bechare admin ko bhi cut milega.
