Sapiens

Yuval Noah Harari

Overview

Who are we, where did we come from, and why is our world the way it is today? In this sweeping work that spans from our species' evolution in east Africa to our contemporary globalized society, Sapiens answers virtually every question we've ever had about ourselves.

Yuval Noah Harari is a public intellectual, philosopher, and professor of history at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Harari's other works include Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.

From how speech allowed us to dominate other Homo species to why capitalism is the predominant global social structure, Sapiens explains the complex journey that has brought us to this point in history.

Favorite Quote

"Seventy thousand years ago, Homo sapiens was still an insignificant animal minding its own business in a corner of Africa. In the following millennia it transformed itself into the master of the entire planet and the terror of the ecosystem."
