Summary

We think we have seen the worst of this world: the violation of human rights, terrorism and killings here and there. Sadly, it is going to get worse because the future is not “bright”. We also think we (humans) rule the world and nothing can ever change that, but if we do nothing, the environment and technology will unseat us. Also, we are so engrossed in other seemingly important things except the things that can save us.

Really bad

Full of mispronounced words, incoherent streams of thought... just get the full length book. This one wasn’t worth the time savings.

Terrible Narrator

Could they not find a more articulate narrator? I thoroughly enjoy Harari but this narrator is difficult to listen to. He sounds like he is in a rap battle, does not match with the scholarly writing.
