This is a must-read whether you have suffered with mental health issues or not.      







Jared Diamond, Guns Germs and SteelGuns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond

Unlike other scholars, he moves away from a European focus and instead concentrates on the way different cultures evolved and developed, examining the numerous factors that caused these changes. Guns, Germs and Steel is a breath of fresh air amongst world history books.
