Sapiens

Sapiens cover

I really enjoyed this.

The author has taken the state of current understanding of human evolution, of world history and of major religions, together with the basics of capitalism and the scientific revolution, and drawn it all together into a single history of our species.

And it’s so readable! Not repetitive or bogged down with excessive footnotes and references – just packed with insight into why the world has become what it is today.

A fascinating and remarkable book, I wish I’d picked it up sooner.

  1. Have you only just raided your son’s bookshelves for this? I thought it was brilliant and left it for Leo to read a couple of years ago. I’ve got Homo Deus and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century as well – although I didn’t think they were quite as good but well worth reading nevertheless.

    Love

    Mum
