  Reclaim the foundational  

  thoughts and deeds  

  of the great ancestors  

  of humanity  

Time to equip yourself with the greatest knowledge from world history!

Dear friend and fellow student of world history,

Our day-to-day life can seem uneventful, but this doesn't have to be the case. Since—in reality—you are the beneficiary of an ancient heritage of dazzling depth and beauty

 

By the sheer fact of being a human being, you are connected to the heroes of the past, who through their titanic acts have moved the world incrementally forward.

This page is your call to adventure! It is time for you to reclaim this heritage!

 

And how will my book accomplish this?

  This book contains the greatest gems of wisdom from hundreds of books. As a result, this book contains a lifetime worth of reading, saving you tons of time!

 

  Ever read a book by a theoretical physicist? Physics gave me the logical skills to understand parts of history inaccessible to general historians and allowed me to explain complex concepts in simple terms.

  Have you EVER heard of a SINGLE BOOK that gives you in-depth insights into the ideas of Stone Age shamans, Sumerian astronomers, Greek logicians, Indian yogis, Chinese moralists, Japanese Zen masters, Roman politicians, medieval knights, Italian humanists, Portuguese explorers, French revolutionaries, English scientists, American founders and more.

  While most world history books give you a bland “generic” summary, this book will zoom into the actual human beings of the time, allowing you to experience the world through their eyes.

In short, YOU NEED THIS BOOK!

Epilogue

MY PERSONAL STORY

By this point, you might be wandering what got me to write the book (and read the thousands of pages of source material).

 

It all started when I was about sixteen years old. I used to hate reading, but it turned out that this was just because no one had ever given me something worthwhile to read.

 

This all changed when I saw a documentary on Star Wars (geek alert, sorry) in which director George Lucas claimed his life-changing mythological themes were derived from the work of his teacher—a man named Joseph Campbell.

 

Suddenly, I felt compelled to pick up one of his books! Although his work is historically outdated (much of it was written in the 60s), it developed in me a deep awe for history.

 

I recently found a diagram I made when I was 20 years old, in which I already outlined a plan to create an updated version of his grand overview of world history.

 

In time, I got better at reading, often making 16-hour days, reading 200+ pages of tough material + making accurate notes.

 

Finally—13 years later—after rewriting my work many times, I’m finally happy with the result. I decided to call it “THE GREAT WORLD HISTORY BOOK.”
