Review

"I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who’s interested in the history and future of our species" (Bill Gates)

"Interesting and provocative… It gives you a sense of how briefly we’ve been on this Earth" (Barack Obama)

"Jaw-dropping from the first word to the last… It may be the best book I’ve ever read" (Chris Evans)

"Tackles the biggest questions of history and the modern world… Written in unforgettably vivid language" (Jared Diamond)

"Startling... It changes the way you look at the world" (Simon Mayo)

"Sapiens is a starburst of a book, as enjoyable as it is stimulating" (Sunday Express)

"One of the best books I’ve read recently… Gives an excellent overview of how our species has developed" (Lily Cole)

"Sweeps the cobwebs out of your brain… Radiates power and clarity, making the world strange and new" (Sunday Times)

From the Inside Flap

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

Yuval's follow up to Sapiens, Homo Deus, is due in September 2016.
