Today we're going to talk about history, something I don't do very often here on the Feel Good English podcast, but this book that I’ve recently read is very interesting and I wanted to share something different with you, very interesting ideas on the history of humans, going all the way back three hundred thousand years, three hundred thousand years.

I'm going to talk about five main changes, transitions that happened during our evolution that has led us to common times. 

If this is interesting to you I would highly recommend searching out the book we're going to talk about today which is called "Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind." The author of this book is Yuval Noah Harari.

I'm going to talk about some of the key concepts from the book to give you an idea of what it's about and also, of course, to help you build your English knowledge, teaching you some new vocabulary, phrasal verbs, expressions and whatever may come about.

If you are listening to this, it’s very likely you have learned a foreign language which is English; good for you, great job by the way.

And maybe you have tried or you are considering learning another foreign language. This book has some very valuable advice and strategies on how to do that. And don't forget, and I talk about this a lot, I believe everyone learns a foreign language differently and at least they have their own preference on how to learn, you have to make the process fun and interesting.

So even though this book has great tips, it’s not like it has the answer for everybody. We have to experiment, try out different things, see what works for us, see what we enjoy doing and keep applying those methods.

However, there are universal methods of learning a foreign language, methods that I believe most people can benefit from. And through research and experimentation, we can learn these methods and apply them and see quicker results in our language learning journey, our language learning process. And the book "Fluent Forever" has great tips.

Today I'm going to give you a few ideas on a book called "Give and Take. Why helping others drives our success." This book is by Adam Grant, who is a professor at a very prestigious business school.

And in this book, the author argues that success depends on how we approach our interactions with others. So how we approach others, how we deal with other people is very, very important.

Today I have an episode based on a book called "Ego is the enemy" by Ryan Holiday.

And if you've never heard the word ego, ego, E G O just to give you a brief definition. The ego is a person's sense of self-esteem or self-importance. Basically, the ego makes you think of how important you are, how valuable you are. So if the ego gets out of control you might think you're too valuable.

This book is all about maintaining the ego in check. Keeping something in check means keeping it at a reasonable level. And Ryan Holiday goes very deep on the subject of how to keep an ego in check but he also talks a lot about why the ego can really damage our chances of success. And what does success do? Well, it could bring us a fulfilling happier life.
