Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus shows us where we're going. War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict. Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation. Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in. What does our future hold? Yuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling phenomenon Sapiens envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions- Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? 'Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before' Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow

As with all Yuval Noah Harari's works, it is deeply insightful, elegantly and articulately written, peppered with dry and witty humour. His books are a must-read and I thoroughly enjoyed reading each, one after another.
Homo Deus takes an eye opening look into our near and distant future, exploring the issues and developments humanity faces in the years to come. This book is probably one of the most important books I've ever read and I would recommend it to anyone interested in our world and its future. - Camille (QBD)
