|Description||** The global phemen** ** The Sunday Times Number One Bestseller ** ** The New York Times Top Ten Bestseller ** Planet Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it. Us. We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens? In this bold and provocative book, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here and where we're going. Sapiens is a thrilling account of humankind's extraordinary history - from the Stone Age to the Silicon Age - and our journey from insignificant apes to rulers of the world `It tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language. You will love it!' Jared Diamond, author of Guns, Germs and Steel 'Unbelievably good. Jaw dropping from the first word to the last' Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2 Yuval's follow up to Sapiens, Homo Deus, is available w. For more, visit www.ynharari.com|
|Author Biography||Dr Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind has become an international phenomenon attracting a legion of fans from Bill Gates and Barack Obama to Chris Evans and Jarvis Cocker, and is published in nearly 40 languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was in the Top Ten for over six months in paperback. His follow-up to Sapiens, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow was also a Top Ten Bestseller and was described by the Guardian as `even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens'.|

What we should know about us.
I was mesmerized by this book, it revealed my past to me and now, so many things about contemporary human behaviour make more sense. From the first page I was captured thanks to it's conversational writing style - like listening to a wise old tribal elder sharing stories - although it is densley packed with the facts that are known to science. There is nothing turgidly academic in it's writing style, it is fun to read. I came to this book after reading it's sequel Homo Deus (a gift). I highly recommend you read both books in sequence.
