Book Recommendations

River Out of Eden

by Richard Dawkins

I think that would be great. River Out of Eden, by Richard Dawkins. Another very short book on evolution. It just really puts things in perspective.

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.

The Hero With a Thousand Faces

One of the great books is Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces, which takes the character going through life and what are the attributes that different people have.
