What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens? This bestselling history of our species challenges everything we know about being human.
Prof Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. Sapiens- A Brief History of Humankind has become an international phenomenon attracting a legion of fans from Bill Gates and Barack Obama to Chris Evans and Jarvis Cocker, and is published in sixty languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was in the Top Ten for over nine months in paperback. His follow-up to Sapiens, Homo Deus- A Brief History of Tomorrow was also a Top Ten Bestseller and was described by the Guardian as 'even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens'. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, was a Number One Bestseller and was described by Bill Gates as 'fascinating' and 'crucial'. Harari worked closely with renowned comics illustrator Daniel Casanave and co-writer David Vandermeulen to create his latest book, an adaptation of his first bestseller, Sapiens Graphic Novel- Volume 1.
I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who’s interested in the history
and future of our species
Interesting and provocative… It gives you a sense of how briefly we’ve been on this Earth
Jaw-dropping from the first word to the last… It may be the best book I’ve ever read
Tackles the biggest questions of history and the modern world… Written in unforgettably vivid language
Startling... It changes the way you look at the world
Sapiens is a starburst of a book, as enjoyable as it is stimulating
One of the best books I’ve read recently… Gives an excellent overview of how our species has developed
Sweeps the cobwebs out of your brain… Radiates power and clarity, making the world strange and new
Would this book be suitable for a highly intelligent 12+ year old boy who is an exceptionally vivid reader on most subjects? Or would it be too in depth for him? - Customer question on
