The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Only Yesterday: An Informal History of the 1920s - Fredric Lewis Allen - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Only Yesterday:

Everything you ever wanted to know about the Roaring 20s, including stuff you were afraid to ask.

My favorite Fredric Lewis Allen quote from the book:

"A time of revolution, however, is an uneasy time to live in."

Questions to ponder while reading Only Yesterday:

Are you a capitalist?

Do you own any stock?

My review of the book:

An older history book that aged very well.

Well written and easy to read.

Thorough and in-depth.
