Publisher's Summary

Yuval Noah Harari, author of the best-selling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. Now, in Homo Deus, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy and every discipline in between.

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. War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict. Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation. Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in. What does our future hold?

    "Enjoyable- but extremely speculative."

    I found the ideas' somewhat radical. Often the book moves into grey areas', but the logical threads are reasonably sound.
    I would heartly recommend it.

    "Not as good as its predecessor"

    I really enjoyed Sapiens so looked forward to this book. This book was less factual and more philosophical which I found difficult to remain interested in. Some good ideas but it needed to do more to keep me on board!

    "An excellent synopsis on present day humanity"

    This is a wonderfully yet unsettling look at how human beings have evolved and how we may evolve in the future. A must read for those with inquisitive minds.

    "Thought provoking"

    You can't "read" this book without being both enlightened and disturbed.
    A must read for the thinking homo Sapiens

    "Amazing book. "

    I didn't think he could write a better book than Sapiens, but he may well have managed it with Homo Deus. I need to listen to it again right away. I've listened to Sapiens 3 times already. So much to absorb in both works. Read these two books before ANYTHING ELSE. You won't regret it.

    "Misleading title"

    This book is not about the future. It is not about how Homo sapiens may become homo deus. It is more copy paste of a smattering of (much better) recent books (Ian Morris/Niall Ferguson come to mind) covering history. This guy is a smug shallow icon in general. But in the specific this book simply doesn't do what it says it would do. In that it discusses the past rather than meaningfully contemplating the future. I don't blame Harari for cashing in while he is hot and writing a slightly less good version of his other book. But if you have read the first book I would skip this one and read Kevin Kelly or myriad others - as they are brave enough to have a stab at what the future might actually look like.

    "a good look at a future growing more uncertain"

    perfect narration of a great book! it puts today's geo-political events into context, from the dismantling of the USSR to tomorrow's digital religions like dataism. worth reading at least twice!
