I challenge you to purchase a history or biography book over 500 pages long and read it within two weeks. The reason? To become inspired and motivated from great men of the past, a duty that we sorely neglect in today’s Youtube culture. I explain more in this Youtube video:
The book I’ve undertaken for this challenge is the 700 page Landmark Thucydides, a Greek history book written over 2,000 years ago.
I’ve also reviewed several big ass books in the past. Here is a list of some worthy contenders, from most liked to least:
- Pacific Crucible
- Dark Alliance
- Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar
- Stalingrad: The Fateful Siege
- The Rise & Fall Of The Great Powers
- Secrets: Memoir of the Pentagon Papers
- The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich (>1000 pages!)
- Russia Against Napoleon
Once you’ve purchased your book, divide its total page count by fourteen to know how much you should read per day. Share your chosen book on this forum thread while advising others which big ass books they should read.
Now go forth, young man, and bathe yourself in masculine wisdom!
