The Best General Knowledge Books

The Secret History of the World BookThe Secret History of the World by Mark Booth – Explore the world’s secret histories and see for yourself if history has been written by the wrong people meaning that everything we “known” about the world’s past is corrupted. Kirkus Reviews considers this “Authentically mind-boggling.”

“Although this book can be read just as a record of the absurd things people have believed, an epic phantasmagoria, a cacophony of irrational experiences, I hope that by the end some readers will hear some harmonies and perhaps also sense a slight philosophical undertow, which is the suggestion that it may be true” –  Mark Booth

The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of TraumaThe Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk – #1 New York Times bestseller.

If you ever wondered why it’s so hard to get what you want, scientific advances show how trauma reshapes both body and brain, and reduces our ability for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust.

“Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society.” – Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies
