Our planet is four and a half billion years old. In a tiny fraction of that time, one species out of the countless ones on Earth has conquered it. Humans. We are simultaneously the most violent and destructive species and the most intelligent and sympathetic. What is it exactly that makes is this way - that makes us Sapiens? In this thought-provoking book, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going. This is an exciting account of human history from the Stone Age to the Silicon Age, documenting our journey from just another animal to the rulers of the world.
