These days so many of us don't really seem to understand where we came from. Your great, great grandparents may have arrived on the MayFlower, but trust me that is not where you came from.
Human history is rich and sad and amazing and depressing and so so promising. Learn as much of it as you can. It helps in a strange kind of way to know about our ancestors. That one reason I love Simon Schama's, A History of Britain. I'm not British by blood but I feel like a first cousin.
History connects us. It gives us a commonality and a genuine connection. And it's far cheaper than group therapy. Usually more fun too.
Pros: It's FREE.
Cons: The flow of the story is difficult to follow because the translation is written in such archaic english that it almost needs translating!
I didn't love everything, and there was a lot that went over my head, but on the whole I am glad I read it. This book would be best read by people already familiar with Roman mythology and heroes.
This edition has page numbers included in the actual text, which can be a bit jarring, especially if you use "text to speech."
