If you think of reading books as an investment of your time, then this book definitely has one of the top ROI’s. The lessons and patterns of history that the authors, Will and Ariel Durant, learned while working on a 10 volume set, “The Story of Civilization”, are compiled and explained in a reader-friendly manner in only 100 pages. My new life goal now is to read the 10 volume set :)
