  • Repetitive - starts out much like an infomercial.

Full of a bunch of super obvious things about healthy living. This guy does not have the respect of his medical peers.

Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.

I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a while. It will make you think about a lot of tough questions while giving an incredible perspective of who we are.
