The point of the book is to demonstrate how history has greatly impacted someone 's life. Eric grew up in New York with his father who taught him all about history and its importance, he says he was his “first great teacher.” His father was a college professor who taught history to many students and says his son was his best student. Eric would later go to study physics but, eventually he graduated as a historian.

This was a useful source, very useful in knowing the background of history and how this can shape someone 's life for the better.
