The Tuttle Twins Guide to Modern Villains

What is it about human nature that leads some people to commit unspeakably evil acts?

And, perhaps a more important question for each of us, why do so many people submit to or even support these villains?

World history sadly offers us a long list of dictators and totalitarian thugs who used their power to steal from and oppress their countrymen—and kill those who defied them.

As tragic as these stories all are, they can still offer us lessons to learn from if we try to understand why these people acted the way they did—both those in control and those who were controlled.

These lessons may just have the key we need to help make sure the list of future villains is far shorter than the list in this book.

Villains included:

  • Napoleon Bonaparte
  • Karl Marx
  • Leopold II
  • Woodrow Wilson
  • Nicholas II
  • Vladimir Lenin
  • Joseph Stalin
  • Ismail Enver Pasha

The Tuttle Twins Guide to Courageous Heroes

Daring men and women aren’t just found in the pages of fictional stories. In fact, history offers us a number of examples of people who stood up for what was right in the face of significant opposition. Their stories can inspire us to also be courageous when the situation calls for it.

Whether the problem is a large one, like a dictatorial state or a cultural prejudice, or a small one, such as standing up to a bully, we can resolve to be a hero and fight for what is right.

That’s why the stories in this book are so impactful—they offer us an opportunity to learn lessons from the lives of a wide variety of people and ponder how we might have acted in a similar situation.

These heroes often stand out because so many of their peers failed to act likewise. Sadly, too few seem to have the courage to oppose something that is wrong. But these stories can help us prepare to be counted as someone who will choose the right!

  • Harriet Tubman

The Tuttle Twins Guide to Logical Fallacies

In a society where countless ideas are being shared, debated, and analyzed, it’s more important than ever to sift out the good ones from among the bad ones. And when people you respect and trust use arguments that sound persuasive, how can you determine if they are correct?

Fortunately, these logical fallacies can be learned, so they can be avoided. Armed with this information, you’ll be equipped to understand when people are sharing an idea that is wrong or making a claim that isn’t true. You’ll become an expert debater by being able to point out a flaw in an opponent’s argument.

That makes this book dangerous—a guidebook for teenagers and young adults who want to explore the ins and outs of how to win arguments and point out problems in others’ ideas. Use this book wisely!

The Tuttle Twins Guide to Beware Your Bias

The Tuttle Twins Guide to Inspiring Entrepreneurs

Throughout history, a certain few people have made risky decisions in an attempt to solve a problem that many people were experiencing, hoping that their new innovation or invention would be able to serve these people and that they—the entrepreneurs, as we call them—would be able to profit in return.

These risk-takers are the key drivers of the economy who create jobs and new products and services that make our lives more comfortable and convenient. The world becomes a better place through their efforts.

But entrepreneurs don’t always succeed. Indeed, their failures teach them powerful (and sometimes hard) lessons that they can learn from. They gain knowledge with each new attempt that makes their future efforts even more fruitful.

Their stories can serve as inspiration as you begin to determine your own path in life and whether being an entrepreneur is part of your journey.

Entrepreneurs included:

  • Adi Dassler
  • Brian Chesky & Joe Gebbia
  • Andrew Mellon
  • Elijah McCoy
  • Elon Musk
  • George Eastman
  • Hetty Green
  • Howard Schultz
