Post books you recommend, you can also explain why you recommend them if you want to. Book can be about anything: Literature, History, Math, Science, etc.
Don Quixote was the first black pilled best seller.I'm not a well-read person tbh but one book that I really liked was Don Quixote, they made me read it in HS and it's a great story about the fight between idealism and realism. It has a lot of references to different subjects like philosophy and politics so reading a version with annotations is recommended.
Teacher also explained me very well why the book was so important historically, it touches a lot of new genres all in the same book and it's also extremely well written, even a midwit like me can tell.
It also can legit make you laugh and cry, which it did at the end.
I read it in the original spanish so idk of the good is as book in other languages but still.
This will come in handy very soon since I'm starting by educating myself in philosophy right now. Thanks for sharingSir Anthony Kenny Brief History of Western philosophy
A good concise read if you need to fill some of the gaps of your knowledge of history of philosophy

Some of the set's unique features included a "Dictionary index" that included both references to pages in the text, as well as short definitions for words not found in the text. In 1985 there were approximately 5,000 of these entries, together with 80,000 regular index entries. The index was spread out at the end of each volume and was recapitulated in Vol. 21, without the definitions. The encyclopedia also utilized definition boxes that explained technical terms that were bolded in the article. Other features included excerpts from literature such as portions of the Arabian Nights and "Paul Revere's Ride", as well as practical how to guides, such as "How to build an ant observatory" and "Making your own weather observation". One criticism, however, was that it offered little or no information about sex-related subjects. An article for menstruation was not added until 1984. Other areas that were apparently
