    Inhaltsangabe

    From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity's creation and evolution - a number one international best seller - that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be "human".

    One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one - Homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?

    Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago, with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.

    Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because, over the last few decades, humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become?

    This provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

    A must-listener!

    Very original, honest and convincing view on the history of mankind is given in this book. I like the way happiness is included into the discussion.
    The quite complex content is discussed suprisingly simple and with amusing humor, which the narrator expresses perfectly well.

    Aufschlussreich und verstörend zugleich

    Nichts für Menschen, die nicht bereit sind, sich mit sich selbst auseinander zu setzen.
    Für alle anderen ganz klare Empfehlung

    Reductionist

    More than an intro into the state of research, it appears at times as a collection of fears and half truths. Like a philosophical discussion with knowledable friends from college, but way too late into the night.

    Must read / hear

    This book should be mandatory reading for any human being on this planet. Maybe we will then have a chance for a better planet.

    A really good book.

    Although have read way over 1.000 books in my life, especially scientifical and popular scientific books, this books might very well be one of the best I've ever "read". Also, i recommend highly the next book, "Homo Deus" from Harari.

    Herausragend gut und gleichzeitig beängstigend

    Sehr gutes Hörbuch, welches zum Nachdenken anregt, auf Basis der bisherigen Menschheitsgeschichte. Nur zu empfehlen.

    Great book and fantastic narrator

    Loved the book as it follows sapiens' development from the stone age to the cognitive revolution to the scientific and all the way to the industrial revolution, always with a sense of humor. The book also provides a glimpse of how the future may look like for us. The narrator's voice is fantastic and makes the story easy to follow.

    Insightful in the best way

    The speaker is so very British, but luckily the book is neither snobby nor patronizing or a boring history lesson. It's funny and deeply relatable, what awesome book!
