sapiens a brief history of humankind reviews from Chris Evans, Bill gates, Jared Diamond, Lily Cole

Product description

Review

I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who’s interested in the history and future of our species ― Bill Gates

Interesting and provocative… It gives you a sense of how briefly we’ve been on this Earth ―
Barack Obama

Jaw-dropping from the first word to the last… It may be the best book I’ve ever read ―
Chris Evans

Tackles the biggest questions of history and the modern world… Written in unforgettably vivid language ―
Jared Diamond

Startling... It changes the way you look at the world ―
Simon Mayo

One of the best books I’ve read recently… Gives an excellent overview of how our species has developed ―
Lily Cole

Sweeps the cobwebs out of your brain… Radiates power and clarity, making the world strange and new ―
Sunday Times

Sapiens is packed with heretical thinking and surprising facts. This riveting, myth-busting book cannot be summarised in any detail; you will simply have to read it -- John Gray ― Financial Times

From the Back Cover

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.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Prof. Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specializing in world history. His books have been translated into 65 languages, with 40 million copies sold worldwide. 'Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind' (2014) looked deep into our past, 'Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow' (2016) considered far-future scenarios, and '21 Lessons for the 21st Century' (2018) zoomed in on the biggest questions of the present moment. 'Sapiens: A Graphic History' (launched in 2020) is a radical adaptation of 'Sapiens' into a graphic novel series, which Harari created and co-wrote in collaboration with comics artists David Vandermeulen (co-writer) and Daniel Casanave (illustrator).
