    Worthy Reading

    As the author touches on so many aspects of humanity it is inevitable that they will encroach upon at least one of your areas of expertise and or interest, and you will find them less than a perfect expert and likely less than perfectly aligned with your opinion. Despite, no, because of that, you will find this book an interesting and suitably in-depth look at things from a refreshingly new angle. That it will find at least one way to offend every reader will prevent it becoming a classic, but I certainly do recommend that you give it a read.

    One of the best books I’ve ever read.

    This is the story of Homo Sapiens, of the many revolutions through which we’ve passed, and the shared fictions we have constructed. A revelatory mix of history, sociology, philosophy, and economics, it kept making me pause to consider the implications of what was being discussed. I’ve never made so many highlights in my Kobo as I have with this book. It’s not flawless; there are occasional glib sentences, and the point about our maltreatment of animals is repeated too often. But I can overlook this because the book made me question some of my beliefs while informing, educating and entertaining me.

    An eye-opener book

    It's an eye-opener book on the history of humankind. It is one of those books that when you read it you're like "that's exactly what I always thought, but I was never able to put it in words. Thank you!" Absolutely recommended.

    Concise walkthrough over real issues of human history and future

    Well explained while concise. Relevant examples and approachable style. Smooth to read and leaves a feeling of longing for the follow up.

    Must read

    Best book I've read this far. Harari is not afraid to formulate his theories, regardless of the conclusions being harsh or unpleasant. His writing style keeps you tied to the book while informing you non stop. I do not share the opinion of some other reviews the book being written in a subjective way. He rarely shows his opinion but rather goes for an objective approach and deductions. And yes, he makes perfectly clear how we are ruining our world for our children to clean up our trash. For me, it did make me think, look at happiness from another perspective and change my consumerism behaviour (even more)
