Inhaltsangabe

Random House presents the audiobook edition of 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, read by Derek Perkins. 

From the author of the multimillion copy best seller Sapiens.

Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus looked to the future. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century explores the present. 

How can we protect ourselves from nuclear war, ecological cataclysms and technological disruptions? What can we do about the epidemic of fake news or the threat of terrorism? What should we teach our children? 

Yuval Noah Harari takes us on a thrilling journey through today’s most urgent issues. The golden thread running through his exhilarating new book is the challenge of maintaining our collective and individual focus in the face of constant and disorienting change. Are we still capable of understanding the world we have created?

The perfume

It is easy to like the books of Yuval Harari as he distills as a Mister Grenouille of Patrick Susskinds "Das Parfum" the essences of many sociological theories into a perfume that slowly evaporates into a stream of compelling stories. It is still possible to get a hint of the originals, but it is exactly the composition and the right dosing that makes it unique. Of course the comparison does only go so far and I do not imply the looks of the author nor the crimes that Yuval Harari had to commit in order to produce this masterpiece.

Simply brilliant

Harari addresses all the big questions and gives surprising but very convincing answers. This could be a milestone in a new era of secularism and a valuable asset in shaping a future we really want.

Regression to the mean

Unfortunately, the book cannot live up to the authors reputation.
The beginning is good, but nothing he didn’t already say in the excellent „Homo Deus“.
The middle is dragging along with shallow and randomly seeming thoughts.
The end is just boring.

Oh, and he totally missed the point about „Ex Machina“. The AI was so female precisely because the protagonist was male and this was „her“ ticket to best fulfill her designed utility function (tricking a human to let her out). And because „she“ was created by a sexist and lonely technocrat, of course.

Great Essays from Harari

Enjoyable to listen to these 21 essays from Harari. Having found Sapiens extremely inspiring and novel in its synthesis and thought about human beings, and also enjoyed Homo Deus, I find these essays to be just as enjoyable. He addresses a number of more contemporary topics, like terrorism, which is an essay that to me is an instant reread, and would feature in my compendium on classical texts on terrorism.

Lags behind the two earlier books

Too much overlap with Homo Deus and much less striking argumentations and insights. Still ok.
