Book Gist:

To Read or Not to Read:

The first thing I did after receiving the book was to go through all the signatures. It is interesting to see manifestation of a personality in just one format and gives me major signature goals (for when and if I am famous one day 😋 ) although that is not the USP of this book. Leo Tolstoy and William Shakespeare seem to have the same signature, we can happily overlook this considering the varied information scoop provided. The subtle language and properly framed timeline make this book easy to read. This will make a great read for those who get intrigued by history. The quotes towards the end of every persona is the ‘mantra’ to understand how these personalities viewed the world differently and how they framed themselves to achieve what during those days would have been thought of as impossible to do so. This is also a handy guidebook for children to base their projects and essays on as it gives details is crisp words which are easy to understand. Although, non-fictional books tend to slip down the rabbit hole after few pages, this one manages well to keep your attention and ensures you complete the book. A definite book to add your “To be read” list!
