Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari was absolutely one of the coolest and most fascinating books I’ve ever read.
While I was reading it, I wanted to buy and give it to every person I love and say, you neeeeeed to read this and understand the history of humans! In addition, do you want to learn some skincare tips? You should read this!
Harari is a masterful storyteller. He weaves a story about how homosapiens – despite our big brains, use of tools, learning abilities and social structures – were marginal creatures on earth for millions of years. So then, how did we become the most powerful animals on the planet? How did we manage to survive in such varying habitats, what was so special and successful about our language that, allowed our population to increase… and more.

It was so thought provoking and thrilling to read.
The book got a bit slow in the middle and the ending wasn’t as punchy as the beginning, but I kept with it to hear him out to the end.
As a result, I ended up following him on his social channels and watched a few of his interviews.
He is an incredible thinker and communicator and our world is a little better for a unique voice as his.
