Critic Reviews

"It tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language. You will love it!" (Jared Diamond, author of Guns, Germs and Steel)
" Sapiens is the sort of book that sweeps the cobwebs out of your brain. Its author, Yuval Noah Harari, is a young Israeli academic and an intellectual acrobat whose logical leaps have you gasping with admiration... Harari's writing radiates power and clarity, making the world strange and new." ( The Sunday Times)
"I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who's interested in the history and future of our species." (Bill Gates)

Thought-provoking

I found it to be very interesting, challenging some assumptions that I may not have given thought to otherwise. I read plenty of reviews also and found that most negative reviews were based on some form of offence taken to ideas presented in the book. I did not perceive his work as absolute, merely a presentation of possible scenarios and ideas, with a healthy dose of reasoning and explanation.

Prepare to have you mind blown

This is by far the best book I have ever read.

It moves at the pace of mankind's development getting faster and faster as it goes.

It will change your perspective on so many things at so many levels. This book is a must for anyone who wants to think deeply about where we come from and how that impacts the way we live today.
