Random House presents the audiobook edition of 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, read by Derek Perkins.

Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus looked to the future. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century explores the present.
How can we protect ourselves from nuclear war, ecological cataclysms and technological disruptions? What can we do about the epidemic of fake news or the threat of terrorism? What should we teach our children?
Yuval Noah Harari takes us on a thrilling journey through today's most urgent issues. The golden thread running through his exhilarating new book is the challenge of maintaining our collective and individual focus in the face of constant and disorienting change. Are we still capable of understanding the world we have created?

    Continuing on from his previous 2 books Yuval Noah Harari has produce another thought provoking read/listen, extending and explaining some previously presented concepts and introducing some new ones. Derek Perkins is an excellent narrator, well suited to the book's nature. This is a book that deserves or demands a second or third reading/listening to capture the ideas in full.

    Simply wonderful. Thank you.

    Another absolutely riveting and thought provoking read. Harari has the ability to break concepts down and make them understandable. Will definitely be re-listening to this soon, as I did with the previous two books. The narrator is brilliant.

    My first audiobook. A revelation. Hearing a text so well read is both very entertaining and extremely engaging. I remember much more. I sense more, particularly the humor in this case (note that I am a native French speaker). I have read Mr. Harari previous books and found this one as interesting as the others. It is interesting to discuss the world and its global challenges from various viewpoints. I certainly will listen to it a second time.

    This book is great knowledge for those who want an executive summary on the rapid developments in technology and it's impact to mankind. It also touches on fundamental question we all need to ask ourselves, can AI coexist with human values? Are we on the brink of digital dictatorship? What is religion in the face of technology advancements? How can we stay sane and be fully in control of our own mind instead of being controlled by technology? In general this a great philosophical book.
