What I noticed about Ikigai was it's numerous referrals to periods of history where Sebastian would draw practical lessons. I am a big fan of all of Noam Chomsky's works, Howard Zinn's People's History of the United States, and Robert Greene's Power, War, Seduction, and Mastery books. I was wondering if Sebastian or readers can share with us their most mind-blowing historical volumes that they felt most relevant to real life?

Based on your reading interests, I highly recommend Black Rednecks and White Liberals by Thomas Sowell.
Be careful about discussing this book with the general public and quite possibly some of your friends. I only know one other person who has read this book AND is willing to discuss it rationally without getting upset.
This book is so good that I don't know why it isn't more popular.
History + practical lessons for life.
