Product description

Review

Sweeps the cobwebs out of your brain... Radiates power and clarity, making the world strange and new * Sunday Times * One of the best books I've read recently... Gives an excellent overview of how our species has developed * Lily Cole * Sapiens is a starburst of a book, as enjoyable as it is stimulating * Sunday Express * Startling... It changes the way you look at the world * Simon Mayo * Tackles the biggest questions of history and the modern world... Written in unforgettably vivid language * Jared Diamond * Jaw-dropping from the first word to the last... It may be the best book I've ever read * Chris Evans * Interesting and provocative... It gives you a sense of how briefly we've been on this Earth * Barack Obama * I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who's interested in the history and future of our species * Bill Gates *

About the Author

Prof Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind has become an international phenomenon attracting a legion of fans from Bill Gates and Barack Obama to Chris Evans and Jarvis Cocker, and is published in over forty-five languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was in the Top Ten for over nine months in paperback. His follow-up to Sapiens, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow was also a Top Ten Bestseller and was described by the Guardian as 'even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens'. His most recent book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, was a Number One Bestseller and was described by Bill Gates as 'fascinating' and 'crucial'.
