Publisher's Summary

International best seller

From the author of the international best seller Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind comes an extraordinary new book that explores the future of the human species.

Yuval Noah Harari, author of the best-selling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. In Homo Deus, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy, and every discipline in between.

Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams, and nightmares that will shape the 21st century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.

War is obsolete.

You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict.

Famine is disappearing.

You are at more risk of obesity than starvation.

Death is just a technical problem.

Equality is out - but immortality is in.

What does our future hold?

Critic Reviews

" Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before." (Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking, Fast and Slow)
"Israeli Professor Harari is one of today's most exciting and provocative thinkers. His innovative new book blends science, history, and philosophy to explore the future of humanity in the face of artificial intelligence and examine whether our species will be rendered completely redundant." ( Cambridge Network )

Bonkers

This is half-baked vision of the future (with no evidence to support). It’s not a future I want to be a part of either. Predictions of people living to 500 years old, cyborgs, genetically engineered people with 3 hands, everyone on psychiatric medications. Sorry, I think he missed the mark on this book.

I was looking forward to being inspired by this book, but was severely disappointed. I have read other books by the author (more historical books) which were very good. But this one is a flop unfortunately. Little to no evidence to support his forecasts, and he paints a very depressing vision of the future.
