Publisher's Summary

International best seller
From the author of the international best seller Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind comes an extraordinary new book that explores the future of the human species.

Yuval Noah Harari, author of the best-selling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. In Homo Deus, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy, and every discipline in between.
Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams, and nightmares that will shape the 21st 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? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.
War is obsolete.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?

Critic Reviews

"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)
"Israeli Professor Harari is one of today's most exciting and provocative thinkers. His innovative new book blends science, history, and philosophy to explore the future of humanity in the face of artificial intelligence and examine whether our species will be rendered completely redundant." (Cambridge Network )

If you don't mind digging, you'll find the gold.

I absolutely loved chapters 8 through to the end and this book was worth the ideas in there. The rest of the book for me got into far too many specifics about ancient cultures that were not only boring but far too specific and drawn out, all for the sake of leading to ideas that weren't worth the grind. I understand this author felt the need to legitimize his speculations by demonstrating that he did do research and intelligently constructed his conclusions but it results in a strange combination between fun/informative and an obscure history lesson you never wanted.

A must read for ever human today

In order to facilitate conversations about where we as a species are going we need some basic understanding of where we have been and what may come to pass. This book provides that outline in an uncontroversial way, like the authors previous book, this book can change your perspective from a human centric viewpoint to understanding our species from something more akin to the third person perspective. This wasn't what I was use to thinking like, and I am grateful for the read.
