The Strange Death of Europe is a highly personal account of a continent and culture caught in the act of suicide. Declining birth rates, mass immigration, and cultivated self-distrust and self-hatred have come together to make Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting their own comprehensive alteration as a society and an eventual end.

This book does a great job of doing a difficult thing, asking what is best for western society? Are growing levels immigration a good for society or not. Murray does a great job dispelling the Myths surrounding multiculturalism and shows the arrogance of modern western politicians to believe that people of fundamentalist Islamic backgrounds will renounce their beliefs in favour of our modern western values. Unfortunately it seems the social, financial and cultural costs are stacking up, leaving many native Europeans disenfranchised with what is happening to their nations.

Fingerprints of the Gods is the revolutionary rewrite of history that has persuaded millions of listeners throughout the world to change their preconceptions about the history behind modern society. An intellectual detective story, this unique history audiobook directs probing questions at orthodox history, presenting disturbing new evidence that historians have tried - but failed - to explain.

Came across this book after seeing Graham on Joe Rogans podcast. Truly fascinating. Exposes the gaps in main stream history, highlights how poor some of the accepted assumptions are and proposes some pretty logical alternatives. The case is very much still open on human pre-history and our origins.

Mention the name Niccolò Machiavelli and you might unleash a powerful response-even among people who have never read a word of his writing. The word "Machiavellian" conjures up images of an indistinct figure quietly making his way through the darkest corridors of power; a cold-blooded political liar; or a coolly practical leader - amoral at best - willing to do whatever is necessary in a world governed not by ideas of right or wrong, but by solutions dictated by realpolitik.

33 Strategies of War is a comprehensive guide to the subtle social game of everyday life, informed by the most ingenious and effective military principles in war. It's the I-Ching of conflict, the contemporary companion to Sun Tzu's The Art of War, and is abundantly illustrated with examples from history, including the folly and genius of everyone from Napoleon to Margaret Thatcher, Hannibal to Ulysses S. Grant, movie moguls to samurai swordsmen.

In Mastery, Robert Greene's fifth book, he mines the biographies of great historical figures for clues about gaining control over our own lives and destinies. Picking up where The 48 Laws of Power left off, Greene culls years of research and original interviews to blend historical anecdote and psychological insight, distilling the universal ingredients of the world's masters.

Some great advice here with real world examples. I have enjoyed all of Greene's books. This one is not as strong as the 33 strategies of war or 48 laws of power but is similar in its delivery and message.
