Publisher's Summary

Highly original, provocative and thought-provoking, Yuval Noah Harari asks important questions, with clarity and focus, about what the tech-driven future holds for humankind.

As the world teeters on the edge of a great precipice of change, what price will we have to pay?

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 War is obsolete.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?

    Story
    "Full of "wow, I never thought of it like that!""
    Where does Homo Deus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A really great follow-up to Sapiens. It didn't go in the direction I expected, but Harari, as ever, gives you lots and lots of food for thought!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author manages to point out parallels in history that seem totally obvious once you hear them, but you'd never have thought of yourself. Then he extrapolates forward in a logical way to reach some very interesting, and sometimes challenging, predictions.


    What does Derek Perkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Personally I find this kind of non-fiction fascinating, but sometimes difficult to engage with when I'm not fresh. But by listening to it, so much of the hard work of bringing meaning out from the words is done by the narrator, so you can literally just sit back and listen.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    For me, this was one to take in in sections. The chapters are arranged logically and sensibly, and I like to absorb and reflect on one before I move on to the next

    "Brilliant vision of where we might be heading"

    Brilliant, insightful, well researched and thought-provoking vision of the future of mankind. Disturbing and saddening in parts to realise the accuracy of his observations and logical extrapolation into the Brave new world that may await us.

    "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.

    "Brilliant and thought provoking"

    this book coupled with the former "Sapiens" are a brilliant combination of thought provoking books. They have been written in a neutral point of view.

    "Disappointing follow up to "Sapiens""
    Would you try another book from Yuval Noah Harari and/or Derek Perkins?

    Yes


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Don't think I got that far.


    What three words best describe Derek Perkins’s voice?

    Over 2 very long books it was still pleasant to hear him.


    Could you see Homo Deus being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No idea


    Any additional comments?

    "Sapiens" was remarkable and a difficult book to follow.

    "You get one thing out of this: insight"

    Very much the continuation of his other book the Sapiens, Harrari takes you from the realm of what was to what could be. Even though it's filled with facts and descriptions of scientific experiments, the main frame is very much a story. With a captivating language the author takes you to think about very fundamental issues while being utterly entertained. This is a story worth your time in this age of rapid changes and mindless trends.

    "The book is great but the narrative is incomplete"

    I read and listen to audible at the same time. I realised that the narration of the book is incomplete. The narrator tend to skip a few paragraphs. Due to this reason, i have to constantly pause the audiobook in order to read the paragraph myself.
