  • The Sequel is Never as Good as the Original

    His earlier book 'Sapiens' is an eye-opening page turner I strongly recommend. This one is a lame sequel that is well-written, engaging and yet shallow, vacuous and disappointing. It's the same author but here he delves into opinion, guesswork and randomly raising questions he has no intention of even trying to answer. Quite bluntly he seems to have slapped together a book to profit from the success of the first one. That's understandable but the fact remains this is a shallow disappointment that I cannot recommend.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Must read

    Combines much recent reading and thinking with stunning new insights - and many new questions. Written accessibly and with flashes of wit and exasperation, and backed up with more research than my Sapiens brain can process. I'm asking some good young minds his final 3 questions.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Unconvincing

    I have previously read Sapiens and very much enjoyed it. The first two thirds of this seemed like a rerun of Sapiens covering much of the same ground. The final third focusing on the future seemed full of hyperbole and weakly founded theory. I was not convinced and felt annoyed with the presumptions and assumptions continually being made.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Best book of 2016

    Explores the direction humanity is headed and asks the big questions we're all dying to know the answers to. A sequel to the bok recommended by Bill Gates, Obama, and Zuckerburg.

  • Worthwhile, thought-provoking

    As a sequence to Homo Sapiens, a logical train of thoughts, and sometimes frightening view of the future.... The final paragraph succinctly summarises the ideas to be reflected on.
