if people are interested in lessons of history

i would suggest the book “lessons of History” by will and ariel durant. two historians who—after a lifetime of studying history—wrote a book trying to synthesize any lessons from their studies.

small portions of the narration are a bit dated as it was written during the middle of the cold war, but almost all of it is valid today as you might expect.
