The Birth of Humankind
En tecknad seriebok om människor och jordens historia, svår att beskriva men går ganska djupt men på ett enkelt sätt. Man får mycket insikter och jag förstår varför den har fått så bra kritik.
[A] wonderful graphic novel... Smart, funny and dipped deep in the reality of what we as a species are... Crammed with the details that made the original so jaw-dropping and essential. * Big Issue *Books of the Year* * The best-selling book by Yuval Noah Harari has been beautifully adapted into a graphic novel just in time for Christmas. The story of humankind is told through the delicate illustrations, bringing science and history together to help us understand how Homo sapiens came to inhabit the Earth. -- Amy Barrett * BBC Science Focus Magazine * In case there's any household in the nation that doesn't yet own a copy of Yuval Noah Harari's zillion-selling Sapiens...there's now a zippy new digest of the book in comics form... An imaginative and prankish gallop through human prehistory. * Spectator * Fantastic... Even more approachable than the original book. -- Kathryn Gempf * Chemistry World * Bringing that fascinating story of our collective history to life in an entirely new way... [Sapiens Graphic Novel is] action-packed... Brilliantly funny. -- Jenny Brewer * It's Nice That * Lively, engaging... Transforms humanity's complex evolutionary story into something accessible enough for anyone to enjoy. * BBC History Magazine * Shortly before the pandemic, I read Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. It's not an exaggeration to say I've thought of it every day since. -- Curtis Sittenfeld * Guardian * [Sapiens] has been one of the most spectacular publishing successes of the past decade. -- Killian Fox * Observer * Harari's out-of-the-box thinking is arguably his greatest strength... These theories are what moves history forward, and what makes the book so engaging for an astonishing number of people. -- Katherine Prentice * Glasgow Guardian * Sapiens is an epic history of humankind, at once readable and wise and compelling and thought-provoking... A breath of fresh air. * Bookmunch *
