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.

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!!!

A must

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

Thought provoking taken to a new level!

Harari manages to point out the big picture and the (yet) empty parts of the canvas of mankind.
Loved Perkins voice!
When finishing listening to this podcast, the first thought that struck me was: Who or what wrote this book that is so appealing (to me) and why did I encounter it (or viceversa)?

Awesome read

The theories and arguments presented on the book opened my mind to a new universe of understanding. I recommend specially the last 3 chapters. This book is a great read together with Life 3.0

For the open-minded w/ thirst for new perspectives

I really enjoyed this book. Mr. Harari really helped me understand the importance of viewing the world and what it may be. This title is in line with his previous books and feel it will be great to listen to. But if you are stuck in your old thought processes and don't want to even try to see something in a new light, it may not be for you. Some ideas are very much science fiction, but these days we, as humans, are making science fiction a reality. The narration is perfect and I highly recommend this book.
