Sapiens is a colorful, ground-breaking history of humanity written from a singular perspective. It is destined to become a modern classic in the tradition of Guns, Germs, and Steel.
At least six human species populated the world 100,000 years ago. There is only one today.

Sapiens Homo.

How did our species achieve dominance? Why did our foraging forefathers form cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; how did we come to trust money, books, and laws; and how did we come to be enslaved by bureaucracy, schedules, and consumerism? And what will be the state of our world in millennia to come?

Dr. Yuval Noah Harari spans the entirety of human history in Sapiens, from the earliest humans through the dramatic – and at times catastrophic – advances of the Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific Revolutions. He examines how historical currents have influenced our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities, drawing on concepts from biology, anthropology, paleontology, and economics. Have we been happy as time passes? Can we ever be free of our forefathers' legacy on our behavior? And, if anything, what can we do to affect the path of the coming centuries?

Sapiens is audacious, expansive, and provocative, challenging all we thought we knew about what it is to be human: our thoughts, acts, power...and future.
