User reviews about the book
The concepts behind this book fascinated me even more than Sapiens. However, despite an often annoying repetition of history and data, the author alluded to human love being a prospective “armor” against complete global takeover by DATA only once - with no further discussion on how love might save humans from extinction by data. I would “love” to hear your thoughts on love as savior.
Thank you for the book. It was very interesting.
A vision of where we have been, who we are now, and what we may become. Professor Harari challenges the reader to ask the big question, where are we going as a species? He points out some options that may not be too pretty. Is the end of the line irrelevance? Give it a read. Come see for yourself.
Not as well as Sapiens a but worth reading and a fresh perspective.
Fact check some of the things you may question as some facts can be interpreted differently.
Footnotes not working
Please look at the footnotes in this version. They're not moving me to the actual footnote when I tap on them in the body of the text. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the nook and still nothing
Agree or not, as there will be times you will not agree with Harari, let that be a clear indication that nobody can predict the future, yet this Historian makes way for things that are happening as I currently read through this book. He has turned history into an art form, and it has helped inspire and enlighten new paths of thinking for many, in many different fields. A true gift.
A Great Sequel To Sapiens
From war, famine and plagues to immortality, bliss and divinity. Are we bioelectric algorithms in an interconnected world of everything? What is our future? An intriguing and provocative book with which you may not totally agree but it certainly provides you with a lot to ponder.
