APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Following on the massive success of Sapiens and Homo Deus, Israeli historian and bestselling author Yuval Noah Harari turns his gimlet eye to our not-so-distant future. In his latest punchy compendium, Harari tackles many of our most pressing issues, offering thoughtful analyses of topics like what artificial intelligence means for our careers and how to determine whether a news source is legit. What makes his 21 Lessons more than mere lectures is the deep vein of philosophical thought and moral clarity. It’s heady stuff, but, thanks to Harari’s expressive prose, it’s also hugely engaging.
