Publisher's Summary

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari | Book Summary | Readtrepreneur

Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book.

How did we make it this far? We, Homo sapiens rule the world because we are the only animal that believe in the power of imagination.

Dr Yuval Noah Harari's book Sapiens is a masterpiece that is truly unique on its own. While other books focus on either the historical or biological part of being human, Sapiens focuses on the three great revolutions of human history: cognitive, agricultural, and scientific.

"There's no one thing that's true. It's all true" (Yuval Noah Harari)

Dr Harari is now advising us to think ahead because things are going to change. Humans have been proven to revolutionize not only our world around us but ourselves, too. We've grown, improved, and transformed.

And this transformation will not stop. Where will this take us? Where will we land, and what are we becoming?

Enrich your evolutionary brain with this book of wisdom and knowledge. Realize how much more you are than what you currently think of yourself. You'll love this book. You are, after all, a human.

quick book


Quite a thought provoking journey. The scope & scale is awe-inspiring. Din't enjoy much the focus on happiness. On occasions the conclusions were drawn by forming the opinions in advance. Yet this book surely makes you think

Curt

I’ve listened to over 100 books on Audible and this is easily my worst purchase. I should have heeded the other reviews but had heard good things about this book. First the summary is terrible. The narrator has a sing-songy voice that drove me nuts for 90 minutes. The editing is very poor with multiple cut-offs or repeats.

The book itself was a disappointment. Let me summarize- (1) people suck and destroy everything they touch (especially Americans), (2) religion and capitalism are the source of all of our evils, (3) science is good, and (4) we are probably all doomed. Maybe it’s just poor editing but I saw very little empirical evidence to support these claims and very little true insights about the current and future state of humanity. I wanted to like this book and suffered through the awful editing and narration to give it a fair review but if the full text is anything like this summary, save your money and time.

Straight to the point

I enjoyed the book, my only negative critique is that it proved impossible to download the PDF bonus.

collective experience

An insightful chronicle of our history, and a brief survey of possible futures, told not as dry historical facts, but from from the perspective of impact on and meaning to our collective experience.

definitly recommended


I definitely recommend this book to any person who likes to think about life in this world and where we are going. It is not enough to understand where we have come from and what path did humanity take. We have to understand how precarious our place on this planet is. How we should take care of this planet. Without peace and taking care of the environment we might actually bring an end to humanity for ever.

awesome

I found this book very interesting, but I couldn't listenit all at once. I would listen sections and then set it aside for a short while. I found it reminded me of listening a very well explaining audible book in college

fabulous

An interesting and well researched take on the human condition, and how it came to be. Only issue, and it is a picky and minor one, is the way he describes how England got Manhattan from the Dutch. Otherwise his facts are accurate and well documented and his arguments from them rational, well thought out and compelling. An excellent

nice book

I concur with the bulk of the reviews provided elsewhere. it really explores the macro trends of human history and human evolution and provides a setting for a better understanding of the world both in the past and today.
