Profit from History: See Patterns; Make Predictions; Better Your Life
by Roger Bourke White Jr.
The goal of this book is to get history working for you.
I mean this in both senses of the word work: working, as in, you can understand it better; and working, as in, that understanding will bring you benefits -- you can exploit your understanding to take advantage of upcoming opportunities, and to sleep better at nights because the world you live in is a more understandable and predictable place.
These are the goals of this book.
