Original book summary overview
Yuval Noah Harari predicts a technocratic dystopia that some may find harrowing, and others exciting. Skeptics who think a world in which data rules the universe could be anything other than science fiction will be challenged, and potentially persuaded by Harari's arguments. Homo Deus challenges the most fundamental questions of what it means to be human and implores listeners to contemplate and take control of their futures before data does it for them.
