The Lessons of History
by Will Durant, Ariel Durant
The books I’d give them would be The Lessons of History. This is the Durants. They were maybe the greatest historians of all time. The wrote 5,000 Years of History, and they probably wrote 5,000 pages on it. They took this book, I think it’s 104 pages, they took the themes of history. It could be from religion, natural resources, who knows, each one of these things. They looked at it for themes of history through history.— Ray Dalio, source
