“Sapiens: A Brief History of Mankind” – Yuval Noah Harari

Literature summary

100,000 years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one.  Homo sapiens.


How was our species able to survive the battle for dominion? How did our ancestors create huge cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in things such religion, countries, right, money, books and the law? What will our future look like?

In this book, Yuval Noah Harari looks at the entirety of human history in a holistic fashion. From the very beginning that humans walk the earth to the breakthroughs in the mental and technological area. Gaining insights from biology, anthropology, paleontology and even economics, Yuval Noah Harari examines history and how it shaped human societies, animals, plants and our personalities. Have we become happier? Can we truly be free from the legacy that our ancestors left? How can we influence the course of future to come?
