Secret History of the World!

I recently reread a book called The Secret History of the World.It poses many serious questions about our history and the reality we inhabit, that for the most are not asked or even considered as we are all too busy with our personal lives.

If I was only allowed to take one book with me, this would be the one. The book explores so many things and bring so much together, while gently nudging the reader to start thinking for themselves. A lot points to that time is not linear but cyclical and that history repeats itself. As someone famously said: "If we don't learn from history, we are bound to repeat it." Like in the movie "Groundhog Day", where the lead character kept coming back to the same day, until he started to learn what was there to learn, rather than just abuse reality for his own gratification.

There is this teaser for the book on youtube:
