These three books take you across the history of the world. If you are curious why society is the way it is today, these books are a great place to explore your questions.
These are my top three non-fiction books by doctors. Interestingly, all three of these authors changed their paths from one area to medicine, offering them a different perspective to the field. They all confront questions about human mortality and what matters at the end of life, as well as offering an appreciation of the field of medicine at a time when humanity has depended so much on it.
