**THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER**
Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus looked to the future. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century explores the present.
How can we protect ourselves from nuclear war, ecological cataclysms and technological disruptions? What can we do about the epidemic of fake news or the threat of terrorism? What should we teach our children?
Yuval Noah Harari takes us on a thrilling journey through today’s most urgent issues. The golden thread running through his exhilarating new book is the challenge of maintaining our collective and individual focus in the face of constant and disorienting change. Are we still capable of understanding the world we have created?
‘Fascinating… compelling… [Harari] has teed up a crucial global conversation about how to take on the problems of the 21st century’ Bill Gates, New York Times
‘Truly mind-expanding… Ultra-topical’ Guardian
Praise for SAPIENS
I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who’s interested in the history and future of our species.
Interesting and provocative… It gives you a sense of how briefly we’ve been on this Earth
Jaw dropping from the first word to the last… It may be the best book I’ve ever read.
Praise for HOMO DEUS
Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before.
Shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted and accessible manner.
Even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens.
