Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Sapiens showed us where we came from. In uncertain times, Homo Deus shows us where we’re going.

Yuval Noah Harari envisions a near future in which we face a new set of challenges. Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the 21st century and beyond – from overcoming death to creating artificial life.

It asks the fundamental questions: how can we protect this fragile world from our own destructive power? And what does our future hold?

Critic reviews

"Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. It will make you think in ways you had not thought before." (Daniel Kahneman, best-selling author of Thinking, Fast and Slow)

Utterly fascinating

I really enjoyed this book. Harari has a unique take on human history and weaves a captivating narrative with thought provoking theories and examples to back them up. A must read for anyone with an interest in anthropology.

A revised education of the future of human kind.

Rather than a chilling warning of what is to come, this book takes you thoughtfully through the likely direction of human progress.

A fantastic book, which along with the preceding Sapiens, should be read by everyone.
