I read and listen to audible at the same time. I realised that the narration of the book is incomplete. The narrator tend to skip a few paragraphs. Due to this reason, i have to constantly pause the audiobook in order to read the paragraph myself.

If Homo Sapiens gave me a few different and deeper perspectives about humanity, then Homo Deus really stretched my big picture systematic thinking mind into different orbits.
I can cery well see some of the scenarios discussed here come to fruition- in fact I see many of the trains having left the stations already.
If anything, the book assumes to have figured out consciousness as a mere emergent property of complex networks and algorithms for which the scientific community has no consensus yet. The possibility that human computational powers extend still deeper than the presumed smart algorithms of the future cannot be discarded. In fact, that seems to me to be our only hope of survival as a species.
Excellent book! Really excellent!!

Data and logrithm was most thrilling,mind blowing and super duper chappters , Beyond ranking work
A fantastic follow on from Sapiens. If you enjoyed Sapiens download, read/listen to this book now.
Great book with interesting concepts. Incites us to think for ourselves if our current mindset or if it was influenced by others while sharing the impacts of the current mindset to our future with the onset of artificial intelligence
This book can be seen as a prophecy. But if you don't want it to happen then we will have to make sure that we take charge of Dataism rather than it taking control over us.
