"Is you remember the timing. So this is sixty seven niro still alive until a few months later where all the bad decisions of the craziness. He's just been to. The british museum has a very nice exhibition about narrow. But they've they've tried over the top two controversial by saying he was just misunderstood. Didn't wasn't his fault yes so. He persecuted christians. But you know that sort of thing the romans dead and it was hostile. Sources saying niro mitra started well but turned into a very bad emperor and when you think again take a teenager with no experience of politics public life military and suddenly say you're in charge of the world. Nobody's going to have to say no to. You probably not gonna go well. This is the so. It shouldn't surprise surprise as it goes as well as long as it does. And you know the whole killing your mother and various wives. It's not surprising so the whole empire is suddenly for the first time. Really since they haven't augustus died and they didn't know that tiberius would take over. There will be another emperor civil wars no longer in living memory. But it's a possibility. Everyone knows about so vespasian. Yeah this fellow surrenders and suddenly says coke looking to leave one of the things. You're going to be emperor. It's going to be roman sources a full of these prophecies of people's future glory. Some of which may be true. You know we don't know all the people who are told they have great things and it never quite panned out for them vespasian case. He is in charge of the biggest field army. That's operating at the time. And the eastern provinces have almost a third of the entire romanov station in them and part of that is in egypt. Which complicated by a senator..

"Know all these other people so we do have a lot of data there. It's not just you know fuzzy out of thing. Okay so i mean even if we allow that there is some kind of survival after death we're talking about hypothetically we put that on the tape hypothetic so but but still what. What does that tell us. you know they. They don't they don't go to another planet and they're describing what's going on they don't go to heaven and talk to god and then come back and say well. Here's what things that god told me. I mean they don't have those all it is is i- survival post death. Okay i can. I can accept that. I mean you know. We don't know what that means. Is that reincarnation is go into another dimension of try. Nobody knows right. Well we don't know for sure we have a pretty good idea. But here's where i was going with it not to get too into that whole other area this the way i put it as vespasian. Hey man i'm a dad. Vespasian was a dad. He wanted what was best for his boys. Didn't quite turn out like that because domitian killed titus but that's another story but vespasian is laying. There are two o'clock in the morning and he's looking up at the stars just like i do sometimes in thinking what's going to happen. Have i done everything i could. What is the way to my soul. You know and what happened. When i ran my sore through that druid up in pertaining to you know Is there a moral imperative. Did i do something wrong. He's wrestling with all the spiritual questions that we all have wrestled with throughout time. And no matter how you you come down on it it's real. It's a real part of who these people are well. So so the. The basic question is if you're soul. There's a whole question about whether you even have assault. That can survive death..

"Like josephus to talk. And maybe the holdaway some yet more more goods. But i mean i don't know if it made it you know i don't know if it made a difference to the roman empire for god's sake you're talking the roman empire right versus a small tribe of jews in the middle east so i don't know how much you're wealthy could have had. That made that much of a difference. I'm sure there are probably happy to get whatever they could. They could cut. The state will destroy this out. Probably the where really had leverage is with the space station. 'cause vespasian is a soldier's soldier. And he knows what motivates soldiers and its money so and and if you look at the period vespasian is made emperor during this incredible torma where there's four emperors year period and then he emerges after he goes to egypt and he pulls all these mercenaries together and then he sails into romi says. I'm the guy so imagine so you're right. Maybe not the whole roman empire affected but imagine if this basin had that loot could he in a very tumultuous kind of fluid situation who's emperor walk in with the money and the mercenaries and seize power that makes again that makes much more sense than any other story. I've heard and therefore he brings along josephus as as as as financier basically financier historian. Also somebody masks. They he they now are bound by. This is human intelligence kind of thing right. I need to keep an eye on. You could could could be. I guess i don't have a strong opinion either way. I have no problem with that with visas. I think is probably as likely that the space you needs again heats his man to talk to the jews. Because you're still the problem with jews. Even though you wipe out the temple. He still got active revolt. You have resistance on your hands still need the envoy to judea so you gotta find somebody what are you gonna do. They had haired for a while..

"Ask us and probably for making predictions about him for all we know. I don't think that gets. I don't think that gets the villa with two hundred your friends. I mean we can think about whatever we don't have solid evidence for. We don't have solid evidence either way but what we had what we understand from a modern perspective. If you look at the copper scroll the copper. Scroll is a treasure map right. It says two thousand pounds of silver five steps from this but and the bottom line says and this is a copy. So if you're just safest and you're of this elite family which is really pro roman family. What are you potentially have to trade with josephus to win the villa that he used to own and the free trip for two hundred of his friends. Maybe you have knowledge of where the fuck and treasure is buried because the other thing we forget is that if you were in charge if turk was in charge of defending the treasure and your siged for ninety days do you leave it all out in your living room and say gee i just hope they don't knock on that door or do you go buried the shit you go perry. That's what everyone has done throughout time. When you asked me about josephus like why would he potentially be put in this position to be adopted into the family. The way he puts his he was able to predict things supposedly. And i know that you don't accept that but let me just feel you. Does that sound logical to you if the guy guest and he got it right. It's either my head or i'm dead either way i'm gonna kill you better. Try its potential. If you're vespasian vespasian is that what you do. Is that what you do. Some guy predict vespasian and you needed. Let me give you one example and let me just finish my thought here because he cut me off on the last time i was trying to finish up and i think it's important i apologize..

"Not get all the way through to where we want to get today but we we have to do this otherwise it doesn't really make any sense so the only reason i wanna talk about this i want to talk about the flavian. I think that's where the action is allen. Talk about josephus. That's that's the part. That's really got me excited. But when i my kind of quick read through it found really this this whole idea that we can kind of reboot. This idea of the cult we can reboot which pops up directly into what you're going to say you know it's not that far from this basin and i think when vespasian does it and then really you know the when we're gonna talk about the flavian. We got vespasian. We have titus only serves a very short time and then we have mission and A lot of people don't know where to think but to read that history. It looks like the mission jolt titus. I that lot of people suspect that in that could be true. And it's kind of interesting. Because then he of course really reboots the cult and really advances. That thing which is like. Oh glorification of my brother and my father which would be typical. You know play in the playbook of how to kind of i another play in the evil playbook. But i'm just jump in there. I mean we don't have to take us to the slides that you have. Maybe this interesting. Because i think it's really interesting the direction it's kind of. That's what's grown up. Who the cultivation of our conversation so far that because i think that the smashing of that ancient understanding was in order to grab the resources among certain families which is exactly what happened after the after the roman empire was dissolved europe especially western europe because the roman empire cracked into eastern and western and the western roman empire cracked into feudal fiefdoms. Which then feudalism came in. That is the part of the world that basically then went out and colonized everybody later on became the colonial powers that started taking the resources from africa america asia india everywhere else so this whole story an actually.

"To try to find some consistency and that is what for example. Scholarship is of this era is all about and my book is does the same. It doesn't use. Josephus is a as a source of fact at all. I mean there there are mentions of josephus but they're all only things that were corroborated by other historians so that they other narratives at the time. I mean we don't know what happened then really We again again. I mean i almost want to shift off of this in order to bring it back into focus in a different way but i can't leave it yet because i think you do. Leave a couple of gaps there so again. That's why. I mentioned the arch of titus because a lot of people can get kind of lost in the weeds. And kinda listen to that. Well we don't really know the history and this and that well. I don't know we kind of know some of the history we can go look at that arch with no look at those guys with all that gold jewish booty that they got from sacking jerusalem and we can no at least what historic history tells us. Why did we built the coliseum with the gold that he got from judea right so no. You don't know that well know what the romans wanted to say. Not what ness necessarily happened or didn't happen. Why would you pick that mean. The general consensus is that vespasian was kind of the ultimate super general. Paid has guys well which was his smart way to do it. And that it's generally accepted that he used the gold from judea to build the coliseum and do the circus inbred kind of thing or are you saying you. That's not your understanding saying anything. I'm simply saying that you're saying you. Using words like generally accepted in other words you are you are regarding this history in exactly the same type of mindset that josephus would have just to get back up. I skip.

"There was a story a couple of weeks ago about a Militia group attacking the church in rural ethiopia trying to capture the the ark. And i've always laughed at that. Because if you know the world war two mystery and you know how obsessed hitler was with finding the ark of the covenant and we all saw raiders of the lost ark. And that's basically the nazis trying to find the covenant mussalini controlled ethiopia during world war. Two if the ark of the covenant was in ethiopian world war. two we'll salinas forces would have found it and giving it to hiller. That was no doubt about that. So i don't believe that. The arc is in ethiopia being guarded by a handful of priests. That just doesn't make any sense to me If it's not there you know where is it. There's evidence that the portuguese in medieval times went down to the opium may have taken it in but that get. Where did it go after that. So so part of what makes writing fiction so much. Fun is because there's all these treasures that have never been found and everyone loves a good treasure hunt. Everyone the curse of oak island on on history channel. Everyone watches that because everyone wants to find the treasure. And so one of the fun things i do in my books is we've is in the golden minora is it in place. The ark of the covenant in play. You know we're gonna find those things. The holy grail whatever. It might be Because i think that's you need if you're going to have characters motivated to. Do you know really extraordinary things Do you need to have extreme high stakes into high stakes. People aren't gonna do extraordinarily things over twenty bucks but if you got the ark of the covenant. Now you're gonna do some crazy things. Well that's certainly the line that you're going down Let me just kind of bounce a couple of things off you. That i've been working on and kind of are investigating at very early stages and i don't have nearly the depth of knowledge that you do some just kind of stumbling through this. But i'm kind of intrigued by what you said because i think sometimes we misunderstand the roman agenda as it's being disclosed to us like a just cpas i think is a super interesting character obviously in that verse uprising. Right just there and supposedly. He's this jewish general who fights bravely against the vespasian who comes in and he stands up off at a siege and then it goes into commit suicide the story always gets really flaky at this point and invariably historians leave the most important part of the story out and that's it just goes into the cave they all commit suicide and then joseph says hey is what. I just had a revelation which should come out. And then he says vis beijing you're going to be the emperor and then the spacey and takes him under his wing and says you're a good kid. Come along and write this history down for us because we don't know how to write it. You're the only guy who can write it. Mean whole thing is just preposterous. God tells a really good about this if you get a chance. It's called the secret side of moses by barbero but yeah exactly what you were saying. They were a convenient. Is it to or josephus. They they draw lots and he everyone's gonna kill themselves in water of their latin. He's the last guy standing and he's the last one and he's up it's killing myself..

"Side of the coin of this patrick. Let's look in the case of the julia. Claudien dynasty starting with julius caesar. Obviously in the case of julius caesar basically tipped off a pair of major civil wars one that had to do with those who sided with later augusta's but at the time octavian to fight and defeat conspirators. Who killed julius caesar. Then you have the civil war. That was the second triumvirate And then of course. Naturally augusta's comes out on top after winning out and he rules for the better part over five decades and his rule obviously is controversial a lot of respects because while he certainly in those five decades put a great deal of stability under his rule. There was no fighting or jockeying for succession. It was also very much if not officially but defacto becoming the empire where you had secretive one man rule where you couldn't call it that he did it through the guys roman republicanism and just built up this concept of the principal as a whole bunch of bundled unique powers that were very difficult to pass on and for the most part it was initially his desire to pass it onto one of his grandchildren. Both of which died and this was something that happened a lot for the first choice of airs in the julia. Cloudy dynasty is the ones they really wanted ended up dying in the end up going with other choices but then you obviously had tiberius. Who was his own story. And if you listen to eighty history more than enough about that and then of course you get. Caligula also known as guys depending on the the research that you're taking up followed by claudius and then you had niro and you're beginning to see why it certainly from machiavelli point of view. The problems that come with this largely her at a terry biological passing on of things and that so much of the trouble was from that alone. Then of course once you get to something like the flavian where vespasian vespasian did a credible job title. Even though he didn't rule that long is is somebody who seems to be relatively well spoken of and then of course you get commission so it goes from father to son to brother and at the end of that you get an absolute nightmare and so for machiavelli it starts at this point. The death of domitian..

"Joseph assuage and about what it means to have only one source that refers and relates this account, right? Josephus was a Jewish man who lived in the first century c e was born apparently in thirty-seven C in Jerusalem. He was an aristocratic Zhu apparently from a Priestly family eventually when the Jewish Revolt broke out against the Romans he was put in charge of sort of administration. In the area of Galilee when the Romans send troops to take Galilee Josephus his name originally was Joseph Joseph's automatic bias, Josephus surrendered himself to the Roman bath and it's considered therefore Trader kind of inflator Jewish tradition to the Jewish cause and after the Revolt ended and Jerusalem fell and seventy Josephus went to live in Rome where he became a client of the Imperial family the the family of the Roman Emperor Vespasian and was commissioned by his room and patrons to write a series of history books of the Jews and we have these histories they've arrived and the one that is relevant to Masada is a massive seven book account of the Jewish War which is called the Jewish Court, which is about the first revolt and Josephus chose to end his account this page of account of Jewish war with the mass suicide at Masada. But as I said, he's the only ancient author we have who tells the story of The Siege and fall of Masada including the dog. Woodside we don't actually have any other Roman sources they give a lot of information about the first Revolt. Although we do have sources tacitus for example describes the siege and fall of Jerusalem. So the question is why is just our only source is it that the story of you know this sort of Siege and mass suicide at Masada was something that the Roman authors other Roman writers chose not to write about because the Romans didn't want other people's living under their rules to get the same idea that they could revolt against Rome in the same way. So it was kind of a thing you didn't watch, you know, a lot of people to know about or and I think this is more likely is it just that it was such a minor episode in the view of the Romans that it wasn't worth writing about and that's probably the case in other words what happens Romans Redmond point of view is the fall of Jerusalem in 70 is and the destruction of the temple. That's the main event and from the Roman point of view taking these handful of fortresses that were still holding off. After 70, that was really just little mopping up operations from the Roman point of view and it wasn't something worth writing about and that's probably why we don't have anything written in other remnants horses. Nevertheless. That's leaves Josephus as the only source on the mass suicide at Masada. We don't have any other external corroborating evidence at least not from.

People pay him a couple of hundred pounds and that's it, and the Guy then went on wrote. The problem with Malta, he was not able to give up anything. He wanted to chase the old the rabbits time he was exhausted. He was very, very stressed and he would have made a fortune. He could have a thought. I see metric by concentrating on the only area where he could make money which was over. He got made a fortune very easily by concentrating opera. He was a very good the composer on eventually when he teamed up with a Latin professor and Italian professor, he started to write operas on your Bandini. He made a lot of money. He could made money with royalties has to work so hard. But Mozart founded. Like many people found it very difficult to give up. Any activity wanted to do everything he wanted to chase every parity he wanted to chase. I'd say everybody Robert. he didn't realize he was burning the candle on both sides and eventually here he died very young and the Asir on the lesson from the story is that Mozart couldn't see the truth because he was very close to the story. If you take a step back, it was obvious when you look at life that. He was he was really a great composer Nebraska that will make a fortune by writing Oprah, but he didn't realize that he has to give up the rest. For many people They capacity to think as metrically. Is Missing besides that you have to develop because allies automatically, you're going to think in a linear way and you're going to spread yourself too thin on. You're not going to able to profit from the official paternity. This is one of the examples asymmetry that diaper. Seeing these book. Right right. So you grow eleven books. Over world stretched over just over ten years eleven years I mean, that's quite quite some guy in really. You. Mostly, a you actually a four-time Rice or do this. And I have sources are thinking. Very organized. So the to be because on writing about one book per year the key to be able to do that is that I'm super organized in the research in the in the a book writing the editing. I'm able to do it by the vote in a few hours per week and eventually managed to produce one book year, which I intend to continue to do in the next hopefully, sean as possible in the next case. You're well, and it's also based on decays of research I understand. So this is again another passion of yours you. Something, you're interested in. I work backwards days and this is standing that. It's also counterintuitive because if you want to write a book about docs and you say people to write the book about ducks, could I like dogs? Most people, Louis Start Start researching about dogs and then they spend I don't know like two years writing notes, and then they write a book about dogs and then they take another two years to tweets. IRA. I were backwards I read a lot because I like reading I read our kind of books, all kinds of articles. And then I compile material that I find fascinating because I like it I take notes and then I write the books from my notes. So I don't start the research I start with my notes. I already have a half material for nine books in the future where I used to put together the concept and together the book out of my notes. If I have to start from scratch it would take much longer. You couldn't do it in a year I think. I Senate that's. Good Would Asian skills you got young for for residents. It's not full time in. Your date Joel or Paid Profession Alongside this and What's the secret. well as read this. Knowing what you're doing because the. The problem is when you want to write I, mean the first book I wrote. I was so irritated when I was because, I, I read a lot most of the books I read really crap I mean you really like completely useless. Is. What so upset angry. So I think I can do better. So I do four days of holidays. I wrote my first book. By working either ten hours a day. I approve it was possible. Then I took me like six months to edit because it was the the first rush revere but then I learned how to do it. and. Every time you do one you get you get fast or you get more efficient, right? Better. and. This takes for. So if I compared the latest book with a one I wrote I know living years ago. Of course, it's much better. It is it they they ride and it's much better. Thirty securities more polished. Staff somewhere I need perfection never start. So you're right what you say eleven books it looks impressive but when you look at the beginning Of the game was a mess was. Slow I was messy. Now with the years new, get you get better is like.

He could speak several languages, I could build a very successful business. In Russia before the Communist revolution, he was building railroads.

They way we think as human beings is very much linear. If, you have a headache immediately, you think, Oh, I have probably my head or you have a the job to see I haven't really my job. These are very linear, very symmetric reaction. But when you look at history, you look at the hundreds of biographies boots I, Did Research Book you realize that this is rarely the case when people have day most of the time that is not the head when people lose a job and they can't find another job most of the time the problem is of the job. The problem is something else used their skills. So what I try to do in the book is to develop in the reader. And, what I go in metric mentality trying to open people's eyes to say that reason for most programs, it's not self-evident. You have to really look into the matter to understand what is the real cost of the program how you console it easy. If you automatically take a symmetric approach which is natural because the way we think. Ask Him on we. Tend to. Be Very Linear. Yes assumed that because you dake that he running your head most of the tiger to be wrong you're going to be wasting your time. You're going to be maybe even taking medication that is not suitable because you don't bother or maybe your physician or maybe. Your friends or maybe you're a situation is not prompting you to think symmetrical is a natural it is it is a counter intuitive. In. The book I went through really data of examples. trying to open people size to say be careful because what you think the real pro Amici's now the. Something else. Okay. Just to give you just to give you of the stories of the book. France, one of the one of the biographies I presenting the book briefly is the story of. Many people know that Meltzer was a great station, a great composer and lost is. Not, so, many people know why he was. So Mizzou. What is fascinating monster is that the guy was genius clearly will see genius. He. Very hard. He was working at don't say the work in eighteen hours today. For many years he was doing everything he was writing near sick he was giving concerts so he was teaching. Music he was doing everything you can imagine to make money. Either make any money he may literally told money. He was always running away from his dad's it was really very pathetic for jeans The question is today. In the twentieth century, you have many people doing the same. You have many people have two jobs working fifteen, sixteen hours sometimes because they really kind of figure out a better life and eventually mater died very young. He died a I think he could have easily another twenty years. I think he died basically out of stress he died out of an infection. I wasn't his way then. Why he wasn't able to make a fortune when he was talent and they asked I found in the book is because he was not able. To think as he metrically because Mozart the problem he he counter is that I mean, he didn't half. But he was very clever but he was not able to concentrates.

"Different people in history and how they actually There was straight some found a practical very factual strategies to do that I could find better answers I the book I go through I think about fifty biographies of People Different Centuries Abney buckle have to face extreme. Extreme adversity and they kept a relatively calm they were able to to do very well I just. To go hours and hours and hours about the stories but just we'll give you a short example. One of the one of the biographies. I presenting the book the refugee very short there about five theme. Betas because I tried to go to the key issue one of the biography Cyprus percentage books about. Andrew. Carnegie he was a very a powerful steel manufacturer in the nineteenth century in the US oriented he was from Scotland or you never moved us. He have to deal. With massive industrial abreast. And rescue have to deal with the problems I mean he he was very active manager but the kind of stress. He was getting worse incredible because he was under constant pressure. From the shareholders and one of the mental attitudes that the Ghanaian found very useful. To understand that alive, you want to really get in San. in an effective way. You have to take your losses accommodate. Just getting sample at some point forty cents Carnegie. NEW FACTORY in the US to make steel. When the factory was was finished. hearing allies that. Was Obsolete. Because in Germany in the meantime, the had invented a new procedure for making steel Bessemer procedure, and the procedure was match superior to what Garner was doing. The investment in the factory was actually a few millions. So he was faced with the decision but I tell you within twenty four hours. Carnegie decided to tear down the factory on to build a new one because he realized that alive, you want to be successful I. Need you want to be you want to put the art singer Faber you have to systematically take your losses and you have to say look I made a mistake it's not working or the environment is not the right one for me has to stop this star something new and this is very difficult to do It makes people extremely stressed to realize that they are doing something wrong and they're going to crash against a wall on the feel. Impotent they feel that they can't do anything and to read the biography of currently I mean, just give you an example. At certain, point? He built offices here, several buildings. May the would and then he got the quotation from the insurance and sets while they. They insurance cost almost matches the buildings because they were the buildings for the fire insurance. He was very expensive. So he decided immediately to tear the building down to make concrete buildings because equal cats, they shouldn't cost the by ninety percents I mean these kind of decisions make a very good manager. I make people able to reduce their stress levels by ninety percent very, very quick. So one of the. Techniques that type presenting the book together with many other techniques that are very practical. They're not psychological, very very much hansel. Pragmatic as opposed to S- theory. So another book that you wrote just after a company that it's also really been in in these times that we've really been any time really but obviously, a more most commits thriving in difficult times. What she wrote in two thousand sixteen was that one based on Yes thriving in difficult times book that Ghost. Two thousand years ago to to ancient. Greece. And and the book I have gone through I think about forty different biographies. Of Asian Greek philosophers political leaders, artists of different kinds. I'm trying to answer one question I probably Question Very Dragan is folks look the. Civilization of Ancient Greece. Basically lasted. dangerous talking about the period of splendor. Centuries on during those Stan. Sanctuaries. Having the same area when the Mediterranean. You have a different cultures like the gift Shannon's you have phoenicians, you have different garches around them. And they old disappeared. They were all wipe out due to a famine due to war. Due to political mistakes. I found that very intriguing to say, why did degree succeeds in Hawaii do they thrive. While everybody else was going to hell. And I found the answer by investigating these different biographies. And just to give you some ideas one of the characteristics through find the in the ancient Greek mentality because I'm talking about the really the philosophy practical mentality is that they were very good at spreading the risk. While other cultures they had they had their business to speak for instance in in the Middle East they would still a spicy soaring in in Egypt, they would saw paper, basically the Greek diversify the their activities are locations they open constant. Trading posts in different countries. They traded in different products they learn the languages. So they were very much diversified. So when they had a role anyone area. Because, they have the founding of the had a war They were always able to to survive because they were extremely resilient. Thanks to their the. And today we are talking now about these Kobe, the problems we have in in many areas of the world you see people who are thriving in this area in these times people who are doing very well despite the all the disruptions, these people who are very diversified. They have different skills maybe they have different investments maybe the half also Internet, the online business and they are able to do very well why people who have only one and skill only one business only one Source of income they're very, very vulnerable. This one of the DAS, I really underlying in the book about the thrive in difficult. Times. it contains practical recommendations but there is a lot to learn from Asia in Greece is that many people don't like history they think that he's three ways to thank Naseem they're wrong. Completely wrong. The problem is that the history they learned the school. I think it was useless because he was very boring but the you look at history from a practical point of view a half to tell you is the best teacher can have. Yeah Just after that and just before you recent book that just published. The before you also wrote. undisrupted, highly affect how highly effective people deal with disruptions. That's quite an interesting one as well as anyone that's. The businesses disrupted in this. This this moment now. That book. Bastogne. Basically on disasters. The book is to go through about about twenty biographies of different people who have to face..

"Asymmetry the shortcut to success when success seems impossible. John Vespasian welcome today Palmer show. Thanks. Thanks Dave fast. So. John Yeah you've published eleven books so. A lot of books. And then your latest one of course, asymmetry that you'll cut his success when success seems impossible. That latest book, is it more on a positive minimum Bokor self-improvement book? they're all about the personal development personal growth. Special twists of because my books are hundred percent based on history. Instead of speculating about psychology or about wherever what I do is to go into into history for different centuries different countries, different professions different environments on tried to draw. Lessons that we can use today. The saints are very practical books. They approach to history I take sees very, very practical, very much focused on facts. esquire unique thing to do are we not anyone else's done it but unique trashy use historical concepts and then bring it into personal development. Most people bring development might use examples but not not so much From connaught historical. Using history and research from that. Senate as quite unique creating Ah. Yes. Okay. where I do. Combine looks like Oh, my Gosh Kim. So history, a personal finance investment market these show, they are a breed of personal development that is he can unusual. I do not deal. Wheat psychological history I tried to show our I mean by using examples of other people. Who have very successful. NC Two Asian Sofa extreme adversity different. Professions and I also pretty spent a lot of people who who went through a spectacular failure. by mistakes that many people are still making today in different context but still the same mistakes because there are mistakes that there I would say ingrained human nature. Unless you know history, you're very likely to make these mistakes over again. Okay Let's go through some of your book said it, and then he told me the type of people that you've research and what was behind it in Watson's book. So we can start off with the first one you wrote in two thousand nine rationale is the way to happiness. Philosophy The. Book starts With. The story of Power Carter. A British archaeologist and I got the they inspiration because I was visiting the break was very, very long time ago. Yeah. Yeah. Isolated was an exhibition. An exhibition about the Howard Gardner before. To Tom Com before he actually became famous because he became successful. I find that. Story randomness lead them because they present this man who had the actually very little formal education. Who had emigrated? To Egypt. Who didn't have a lot of connections and they said okay, this guy was working very hard on event he became successful. And the stories missed in I. Think a very important element that actually getting the book. On the life of a garter. I mean he was fired from his job he was. Making, holes in the ground. For more than two years, he thought that he could discover the to vima amazing Farrell because he developed the theory that there was one very important to missing in the value of gain seen in Egypt John What this really fascinating the story is that for these two years he was massively under he was must have the under attack because nobody believes. All the professors, the experts they all came that he was gracing that he was wasting his time he was funded by a British are starcraft. Spending Really hundreds of thousands of pounds every year making hosting the ground finding nothing or almost nothing and the the question I found fascinating his house also that this guy basically alone. Could sustain such a huge amount of negative criticism abuse. He was ridiculed the daily in the newspapers. How's it that someone sustain such an amount of negative positional savage of? Four years years without breaking them. I found this this this aspect, he was not addressing the exhibition. but I think he's a keep on the standing how people become accessible. So I. Researched this story thoroughly. And I found an explanation. The explanation gave me the idea for the book and for all the stories in the book and I call the book. The book is for rationality. And when you look at the the. Current books about personal development. They're all about you can do it. You have to be positive. You have to be cheerful I mean this kind of loss of his very superficial but very. And when you look at our God it was exciting to the contrary. The guy was very low key. He was not particularly outgoing was rather shy. How's it possible? He could mundane sach a huge motivation for years I tell you the answer. The answer is not because he was positive was not extroverted. He was not the it'd believe are of positive thinking the answer is not what sixteen Russian. Carter of Wosa able to develop his theory of this missing Farrell dismissing tomb because he check the facts, he was actually the only archaeologist Stein who very fluent. With ancient here Griffin. He was able to check different sources. On everything people are action he willing back to the source said, no, it's not It's not that emotion is not the feeling is not believe I have checked the sources the to has to hear the honesty and after this to find one hundred percent sure that right even if everybody's telling me that I'm crazy. I found this very very encouraging because the people now they they get this idea of this positive thing in. This very subjective philosophy I think is very dangerous on in the end the crash against the wall and they become a very depressed. I think the attitudes that Carter to we goes very rational, very factual. Very. Calm. I think he's a matchmaker approach and I build the book on that. This was my first book about the Russian eleven and I found that this is strategy. Is Very. Very useful in life on. It's much, much better much more. Reliable than positive thinking. Right yeah. You were a few other books. That's right on the rational live in just after that in two thousand. Thirteen you wrote. A different book not rational rationality but co consistency the key to permanent stress release which relief, which is a key thing these days and people don't look at stress. As a bad thing. Now they locate as you know, we've got to manage this. So is quite relevant in today's world with what's going on covert and that as well. So it's tennis about that book. I title the book Consistency. because when I look into the subject of stress and we the strategy will come together you can put together a anxiety. Worry. Depression we are talking about this group of negative emotions. That affect millions of people aren't just to give you an idea. In the US alone. There are fifty million people taking medication against the stress anxiety depression really huge roller. I found that Most of the recommendations. That people get against stress They are not very useful. And today I mean, you go to go read about stress you get all these recommendations. To detaille Shen to change your. Diet. I mean this kind of stuff which has some beneficial effect but usually, it is very short term. I do yoga and do yoga twice a week. During the Yoga session you might become, it'd be. Better a university of stress but two hours later go back to your initial situation and it's not going to. So what I found in the book is that by researching..

"Augusta's or Vespasian or whomever they would still make the show of consulting. Consulting the Senate before they took on a decision. Even if they are completely certain in that they were going to do what they were going to do. At the very least, they made very good political theater in that way, and that wasn't the case at all with emission number of reasons for one is he really had a chip on a shoulder against the senatorial class. You didn't particularly trust them and I'm sure that had a lot to do with some of the struggles and his upbringing, essentially being the forgotten Flavian, if you will, and he didn't stop there, though, because one of the things that the various people made in kind of secret asides is when it came to Domitian, and his decision making he always kept his own counsel to the point, where they would slightly joked that the only people in his working quarters where the flies, so he very much understood that he had the power they had given it to him and he was going to. To run with it, and this is the consequence of giving this sort of complete power to a single individual, and that not everybody is going to keep up with your political standards of political theater and Republican facade, but he got into life and a lot of very interesting and ways one is he also undertook this happened under his father and titus as well significant building projects throughout Rome.
