"Amazing read, clear and simple, thought provoking"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'm writing this review three quarters of the way through; but so far I love this book. Right from the beginning Harari presents our collective history clearly and elegantly. He doesn't pretend to have all the answers and is quite open about which parts are still mysteries, but he does have some damn good ideas. This isn't a compulsive page turner you'll blaze through in a couple of days, instead take it slow because there's plenty in here to think about.

"This book is a great read!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I recommend this book. It is really interesting. It definitely makes you think. I look forward to reading his newest book!

Description

The global phenomenon. The Sunday Times Number One Bestseller. The New York Times Top Ten Bestseller. Planet Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it. Us. We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens? In this bold and provocative book, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here and where we're going. Sapiens is a thrilling account of humankind's extraordinary history - from the Stone Age to the Silicon Age - and our journey from insignificant apes to rulers of the world 'It tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language. You will love it!' Jared Diamond, author of Guns, Germs and Steel 'Unbelievably good. Jaw dropping from the first word to the last' Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2 Yuval's follow up to Sapiens, Homo Deus, is available now.

Author Biography

Dr Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. Sapiens- A Brief History of Humankind has become an international phenomenon attracting a legion of fans from Bill Gates and Barack Obama to Chris Evans and Jarvis Cocker, and is published in over 45 languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was in the Top Ten for over nine months in paperback. His follow-up to Sapiens, Homo Deus- A Brief History of Tomorrow was also a Top Ten Bestseller and was described by the Guardian as 'even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens?.
