    Inhaltsangabe

    Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically acclaimed New York Times best seller and international phenomenon Sapiens, returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanity's future and our quest to upgrade humans into gods.

    Over the past century, humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. This may seem hard to accept, but as Harari explains in his trademark style - thorough yet riveting - famine, plague, and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists, and criminals put together. The average American is 1,000 times more likely to die from binging at McDonalds than from being blown up by Al Qaeda.

    What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet Earth, what destinies will we set ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams, and nightmares that will shape the 21st century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.

    With the same insight and clarity that made Sapiens an international hit and a New York Times best seller, Harari maps out our future.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Derek Perkins narrates the audiobook with an authentic excitement that engages listeners... Science enthusiasts will undoubtedly devour this audiobook, while others may wish Perkins had taught their high school science class." ( AudioFile)

    Powerful and gripping!!

    Sapiens was always going to be a hard act to follow, but the author was able to not only outline our current evolutionary trajectory, but also provide a well thought out perspective of our current collective state and in so doing marrying what might be (the future) with the past and our present. Overall, an excellent book and yet another gripping performance by the narrator- definitely a must read!!!

    Felt like a repetition of the first book

    The book is interesting but not as impacting as the first one. Narrator is great.

    Thanks for Sharing

    Like millions of other Readers and listeners, I am amazed of the recap, present and outlook of posibilities. I enjoyed the Network Thinking. Parts of the book are hard to digest. But all over I am quite motivated some Happenings are making more sense now. Lovely voice Mr. Perkins

    I loved it.

    Interesting points of view regarding humans future, and how the future will face us with dilemas for some reason we are not yet ready to face.

    Very impressive and far sighted.

    Harari combines deep insight with an astonishing sense of humor. Together with Perkins pleasing voice it's quite difficult to stop listening.

    An eye-opener for conscious people

    An eye-opener for all humanists and conscious people of today.
    The first hour plus the last hour produce the actual point of the author. The 20hrs in between are a very well done scientific round up of human history, consciousness, religion and psyche that is a charm to read and give the background to the authors final claims and theories.

    This book is highly recommended to any human beeing that is asking themselves where our current data-driven approach could lead us as society.

    A must

    One of the most mind-blowing and exciting as well as disturbing books I have ever read. Huxley would be proud.
