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.

Samuel Timothy Lewis ,

Really interesting book

I was referred by a friend at work to read this book. Super interesting, but some points do dive back into and jump back a forth throughout time here and there. I would highly recommend this book. The only problem is, with human kind we always want more. I want to know more about certain areas, but he has literally told us where we are at. Making it hard for us to know more. Putting human kind in place I would say. Let hope for something extraordinary, with biology tests. Super human?

Sapiens Review

Opinionated tripe

Homo sAliens

My first look at browsing with a view to from Apple Audiobooks and I'm alarmed by the "Reviewers" here. The genre and title of the book, Sapiens, suggests an author with an incisive, scholastic bent toward socio-cultural anthropology and Darwinian evolution. However, "Reviews" I've read through, pertaining to both author and Sapiens, gives no insight into the academic reach of what is frequently referred to as opinion(s). Is his a pond-skipping flow of consciousness, or the deep, dark dive of a Sperm Whale?
