Inhaltsangabe

Brought to you by Penguin.

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

The No.1 best seller.

In 21 bite-sized lessons, Yuval Noah Harari explores what it means to be human in an age of bewilderment.

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?

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.

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.

Great book for understanding today's issues

This book provides a general overview about all the things going on in the world at the moment and the challenges we face in the near future. Religion, politics and society in relation to each other and to the issues of climate change and technological disruption are the topics discussed. Totally recommended!

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.

Not bad, but at odds with itself at times...

As already stated in the title to this review, this is not a bad book and not a bad audio book either. My only gripe with this book is that the author tends to overextend into fields of science in which she clearly only has very basic knowledge. This coupled with some incongruities between the ealry and later chapters did kind of annoy me at times.
But all in all I must say that this book does at least touch on some interesting topics in some interesting ways, and is definitley worth the listen if you want something to jog your mind a bit, be it in confusion, anger, or genuine interesst in the topics and/or her way of touching on them...

The chatterbox award goes to...

I enjoyed reading parts of Homo Deus and Sapiens. Here we see the man in show off mode, a lack of precision, plenty of „talking for the sake of talking“.
Harari should consult Snyder‘s „On Tyranny“ for a to the point, concise structure.
If you want futurama have a look at James Bridle‘s „a new dark age - technology and the end of the future“.

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.
