Want to improve your English while learning new things about the world around you? Try some non-fiction, but beware– the level of most of these books is pretty advanced! These are a few books that have been highly recommended lately:
Learn about economics, politics, and other global aspects through a discussion of the world’s favorite sport.
This broad look at the history of the world was extremely popular when it came out, mostly because the author takes an unusual look at how some societies became successful while others continued to suffer. It starts with the Ice Age and includes sections on all parts of the world, including Asia, which is the author’s expertise.
One of my favorites– a collection of inspiring essays written by both famous and ordinary people (although a few of the older ones bored me). There is also a This I Believe II and This I Believe On Love. You can also listen to and read the essays on the website: thisibelieve.org
Inspiring true story that will make you really appreciate your educational opportunities.
