Book review: Sapiens – A Brief History of Humankind

If you want to understand our world today, Sapiens is a MUST read. We are all members of a species, sharing our only world with other species. Yet, so many of our species are oblivious to how all the pieces fell together to get us to where we are today and the impact we have on the world we share.

Yuval Noah Harari dives into the biggest drivers lifting Sapiens to the top of the animal kingdom. He presents very interesting and quite provocative theories that I guarantee you will generate many interesting conversations. Is everything we’ve ever known or been told just a shared illusion? Are humans better off with our modern, technology driven lives we have today or were there benefits to being hunter-gatherers that have been lost to history and advancement? With the rapid rate of change our species is cycling through, where are we heading? I hope to learn more from Harari on this topic in his next book Homo Deus – a History of Tomorrow.
