Thinking exponentially is a challenge. New York Times bestselling author Yuval Noah Harari intends to shock you, entertain you, and change the way in which you see the world. Best of all, he will train your brain to imagine the scenarios of our future and the many ways in which we humans might overreach ourselves. Read the Amazon review below for Homo Deus – A Brief History of Tomorrow.
An Amazon Best Book of February 2017: Those who read and loved Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens have been eagerly anticipating his new book Homo Deus. While Sapiens looked back at our evolutionary development, this new book examines where we might be headed (Homo Deus is subtitled “A Brief History of Tomorrow”). Predicting the future isn’t as easy as deconstructing the past, and Harari openly admits the challenge—but even if he’s completely wrong in his predictions, and most of us doubt he is, Homo Deus is the kind of provocative, food-for-thought read that drew so many of us to his work in the first place. According to Harari, our future could be very different from our present—dark, technocratic, and automated—but reading about our possible fates, presented in Harari’s clear-eyed and illuminating style, sure is fascinating. –Chris Schluep, The Amazon Book Review
