THE MULTI-MILLION COPY BESTSELLER

What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens?

Yuval Noah Harari challenges everything we know about being human.

Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it: us.

In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here and where we're going.

‘Tasmania’ is NOT an Aboriginal name

Thoroughly immersive and captivating in most parts. Sadly stuck in the white ages when referencing ‘Australian’ First Nations his-story.
Blak Douglas, 2021

Pital hos ,

Misleading title.

Far to ideological and far less scientific then I would have liked. I wanted to learn about history of sapiens not about your views on the moral good or bad of events. Save your time and money

Opinion not facts

A soothing voice as long as you don’t listen to the actual words. The historical narrative is fine, but the analysis of why things happened is presented as fact when it is clearly opinion. Useful book if you are fifteen and want to impress other fifteen year olds. Or if you want to argue in youtube comment sections. Anywhere where people are unlikely to be equipped to fact-check you.
