This is my favorite thing that I read in 2015. I can hardly believe that I got through over 400 pages of relatively dense anthropological explanations in a month. It is a testament the author Yuval Harrari’s beautiful writing and engaging pace.
Harrari writes a compelling narrative about our species and how we managed to decouple from our common ancestors and eventually conquer the world. There is too much wisdom and insight baked into this book for me to possibly dispel in a few paragraphs.
Read it. Seriously. You will better understand yourself. You will better understand your fellow man. And you will better understand the history of our species
Who should read this; Everyone. It’s been translated into languages for a reason.
Major lesson learned; Humankind has traveled a long and complicated road to where we currently stand. Most everything that has propelled us stemmed from our unique and unbridled imagination.
Interesting tidbit; The book has been translated in 26 languages and is an international bestseller.
