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.
