History’s Greatest Decisions

History’s Greatest Decisions takes a light-hearted but informative look at 50 of the best decisions ever made. Entries range from the king who renounced war and brought Buddhism to millions, to a woman on a bus standing up for her rights by sitting down and refusing to move.

Sometimes the people who made the big decisions were aware of the gravity of what they were doing, and sometimes they had no idea at all, but they nevertheless arrived at the right answer.

This book takes a look at some famous and not-so-well-known examples of people who, when faced with tough choices, made the crucial decisions and got them right. And, in the process, made the world a better place.
