I'm not looking for anything in particular, I'm more interested for the sake of learning in general so if you have a favourite, throw it out there and I'll take a look. Wars, the rise and fall of empires, various eras, I don't mind.

It's my 3rd time reading through it, decided to pick it up again following the Brexit stuff that's been going on, helps gives me some perspective on this island nation of ours (spoiler - we're all immigrants, every last one of us).
O'Farrell manages to weave classic dry British humour throughout the story of how Britain came to be the place it is today, highly recommend it.
Seriously, give it a look.
