Reviews

"What elevates Harari above many chroniclers of our age is his exceptional clarity and focus."--London Sunday Times
"A remarkable book, full of insights and thoughtful reinterpretations of what we thought we knew about ourselves and our history."--The Guardian
"Harari is an exceptional writer, who seems to have been specially chosen by the muses as a conduit for the zeitgeist... Fascinating reading."--Times Literary Supplement (London)
"Sapiens takes readers on a sweeping tour of the history of our species.... Harari's formidable intellect sheds light on the biggest breakthroughs in the human story...important reading for serious-minded, self-reflective sapiens."--Washington Post
"Sapiens tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language."--Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel, Collapse, and The World until Yesterday
"In Sapiens, Harari delves deep into our history as a species to help us understand who we are and what made us this way. An engrossing read."--Dan Ariely, New York Times Bestselling author of Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty
"Provocative...the handiwork of a gifted thinker."--Jennifer Senior, New York Times
"Provocative... essential reading."--New York Times Book Review
"Homo Deus is great, accessible science writing... This is a super fun read."--PBS Newshour
"Spellbinding... This is a very intelligent book, full of sharp insights and mordant wit... It is a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart... It is hard to imagine anyone could read this book without getting an occasional, vertiginous thrill."--Guardian
"Harari is an intellectual magpie who has plucked theories and data from many disciplines - including philosophy, theology, computer science and biology - to produce a brilliantly original, thought-provoking and important study of where mankind is heading."--Evening Standard (London)
"I enjoyed reading about these topics not from another futurist but from a historian, contextualizing our current ways of thinking amid humanity's long march-especially...with Harari's ability to capsulize big ideas memorably and mingle them with a light, dry humor...Harari offers not just history lessons but a meta-history lesson."--Washington Post
"[A] great book...not only alters the way you see the world after you've read it, it also casts the past in a different light. In Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted & accessible manner."--Mail on Sunday
"Like all great epics, Sapiens demanded a sequel. Homo Deus, in which that likely apocalyptic future is imagined in spooling detail, is that book. It is a highly seductive scenario planner for the numerous ways in which we might overreach ourselves."--The Observer (London)
"Thrilling to watch such a talented author trample so freely across so many disciplines... Harari's skill lies in the way he tilts the prism in all these fields and looks at the world in different ways, providing fresh angles on what we thought we knew... scintillating."--Financial Times
Praise for Sapiens "I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a fun, engaging look at early human history . . . you'll have a hard time putting it down."--Bill Gates
"Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before."--Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow
