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?
Yuval has outdone himself in the 2nd installment of his thrilling book series, this time focusing on present day; the 21st century. Yuval details through 21 key concepts/ideas which are nothing but relevant in todays day and age. Pertaining to his thought provoking and challenging writing style, Yuval opens up yet another pandoras box of quesitons, even more bewildering than the last. The book is essentially a call to arms, to not become consumed in our rapidly changing and technologically involved world, but instead to remain somewhat indifferent of it, and to deeply ponder the world we live in, and to see it for what it truly is. Whatever that is is for you to decide. - Nicholas (QBD)
