Biographies and history lessons

This month we will be exploring some excellent biographies and some great perspectives on rhythmical, repetitive history. The times are uncertain and everyone would like to know what’s around the next corner. It may be helpful to learn from the past and similar times. For this month, we have chosen these five books:

105 Kai Bird, Martin J. Sherwin: American Prometheus

209 Walter Isaacson: The Innovators

047 Jared Diamond: Guns, Germs and Steel

101 Jack Weatherford: Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World

073 George Dyson: Turing’s Cathedral
