Apart from some nonsense appeals to nature to justify some shakey philosophy, and being awfully repetitive, this is a good book with an important message. Take your ego out of decision making.

This book, by Ray Dalio, is excellent. He covers a large swathe of history with detailed charts, plotting the rise and fall of nations.
The sixteen points he included in his analysis are fascinating, especially the inclusion of elements like education, innovation, social peace, etc. Few authors analyse and include such factors.

History is dynamic, as is the changing world order. However, it appears there is an imminent change. Time will tell. However, the analysis is superb.

This is much more than a book about Principles and a large amount about how to operate a business and make decisions. Lots of great wisdom and examples with Bridgewater are included.

This is a good book to take a look at the bigger picture of global economics. I'd have to say, seems spot on for understanding the fall of the American Empire we're currently experiencing.
