Humankind: A Hopeful History
Why this book?
I always believe that people and the world are inherently kind. Rutger Bregman proves this theory true. His knack for finding small stories that have a big impact is one of a kind, and he backs these stories up with thoughtful research and additional notes. I feel like if everyone read this book, the world would have less division, and people would realize we are all on the same team fighting for what we believe is kind and good. Hence the title: Humankind. This is hands down one of my favorite books I have ever read.
