If we are talking about the history of Russia, then you can just try to record on the player the full course of Klyuchevsky (4 gigabytes, 101 hours). After the fifth or sixth audition, I suppose a lot will remain in my head. Vasily Osipovich's language and style are quite light and captivating.
I answered a similar question already. So much for you:
In any case, to begin with, it's worth deciding the story which country we want to know. Let's assume that Russia.
The first option is archaic. That is, we choose any milestone in history, the most interesting for you personally, and begin to study it thoroughly. In the process of acquaintance, you will have a huge number of questions about neighboring milestones. By intricately combining all the points, you end up with a complete picture. And you can fill it with details until the end of your life, and never finish.
The second option is sequential. We choose a starting point, for example, let it be the Baptism of Russia, and melancholy move towards the reign of Ivan the Terrible, then we will reach Peter I, the kingdom of the Romanovs, the revolution of 17, Lenin, Stalin, the Second World War, the death of Stalin, the Cold War, Gorbachev, collapse USSR, Yeltsin, Putin, Medvedev again Putin. In my opinion, the main thing is to have before our eyes a general picture of the course of history. What, where and when it happened, why it happened and how, in fact, it all ended. Any method guarantees you a general idea of most of the world, because it is impossible to study the history of the Second World War without touching on the history of World War II, while not learning about the rise of Germany after the failure in the First World War, about how Hitler rose from a simple volunteer to army sitting in a trench, to the Supreme Commander of the Third Reich, and so on. But be careful, you will always be bombarded with non-biased interpretations of what happened. Draw your own conclusions.
Along with the above, you will learn about discoveries in various fields, because history is not only wars and revolutions, it is also about art, personal qualities of heroes of different times, about culture and much more. But I repeat once again that you can understand the details until the end of your life, and I do not advise you to do this, if during this journey the story suddenly does not become your meaning.
At one time I went to the first, most difficult option. It took me a year and a half for a more or less formed picture, but I am still an amateur, which I advise you too, because, as you know, success is a bad teacher. Socrates, for example, the more he learned (read as "expanded the picture of the world"), the more often he repeated: "I know that I do not know anything." So do not be discouraged, you still will not know everything, but at least you need to know something. Otherwise, why else would we live if we do not comprehend the benefits of the heritage left to us by previous generations.
What story are we talking about? Everyone has it differently, but I would start with some elementary blockbusters to love the story. For example, the movie Troy or Alexander. Learning history is difficult without curiosity. I taught the history of Russia in this order: I watched Leonid Parfenov's films about the Russian empire, then I read a school textbook, then I studied diagrams and tables. You can then research specific sources.
If you are interested, for example, in the 20th century, then I can recommend the lectures of Alexander Shubin. Better than any series:
histrf.ru But, again, we need specifics. It is not entirely clear what story we are talking about.
I have almost no appetite, I melt before our eyes. And I used to gain 75kg freely, it was normal, with an increase of 175.
