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.

    Ela K, 8 september 2017

  2. En bok varje människa skl läsa
    Jackie Lynd-Johansson, 25 augusti 2017

    "Sapiens" är en bok som alla människor bör läsa. Det ger ett tydligt perspektiv på vad vi, Homo sapiens", är - var vi har kommit från och kanske vart vi är på väg.

    Trots att boken hanterar stora frågor så är den mycket lättläst med en skrivstil som är fängslande. Ett måste.
