Summary: History's Greatest Decisions identifies and profiles the many important and difficult decisions leaders have made through history which shaped the world as we know it today. From our unknown ancestors who made the first stone tools, to those people in Northern Ireland who managed to put aside their differences in order to create a better future for their children; from the most powerful man in the world deciding not to start a nuclear war, to a woman on a bus standing up for her rights refusing to move seats. History's Greatest Decisions looks at well-known and not-so-well-known examples of people who made the crucial decisions and got them right. https://www.amazon.com/Historys-Greatest-Decisions-People-Made/dp/0785835210/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=9780785835219&qid=1580244568&sr=8-1
