Inhaltsangabe

The Sunday Times best seller.

Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it. Us.

We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us sapiens?

In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going.

Sapiens is a thrilling account of humankind's extraordinary history from the Stone Age to the Silicon Age and our journey from insignificant apes to rulers of the world. For more, visit www.ynharari.com.

Kritikerstimmen

"It tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language. You will love it!" (Jared Diamond, author of Guns, Germs and Steel)
" Sapiens is the sort of book that sweeps the cobwebs out of your brain. Its author, Yuval Noah Harari, is a young Israeli academic and an intellectual acrobat whose logical leaps have you gasping with admiration... Harari's writing radiates power and clarity, making the world strange and new." ( The Sunday Times)
"I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who's interested in the history and future of our species." (Bill Gates)

Great Book

I have to admit that the preview chapter was not making me curious. It sounded too much like from my biology book. But the recommendation like from Bill Gates let me start listening. And it was worthy.
A great overview from the Big Bang to today and the development of humankind; many theories and this all packed in a wonderful language. I learned a lot.
A must read. For everyone who is interested in more than the schedule of today's TV program.

good train reading

Very entertaining but the facts are not always accurate. The book is an excellent discussion-starter.

Incredible!

Linking the narratives and developments of 70000 years is an incredible challenge. Listen to this. It is a masterful presentation of human intellect. Full of doubts and bold believes, full of reason and ingenuity, full of contradiction and interpretation. Convincing, mind expanding and truly inspiring like humans themselves. A fantastic piece of art and science.

Superficial and not objective

A few good ideas and interesting parallels are drowned in polarised discussion and common cliches. It is a superficial reading, filled with controversial facts and unsupported conclusions. The book is more a subjective view of the author as a history of a mankind.

History beyond the availability bias

The book lives more from the originality of its ideas than from the depth of the arguments, but incorporates successfully the latest findings in archeology, economics and other fields of science into a coherent theory about the past and future of homo sapiens. As a result and also thanks to the fluent narration the book can distance itself from the masses of new publications and comes with a guarantee of new insights for all but a few exceptional homo sapiens.
