Was recommended by Bill Gates. Did not disappoint
Brilliant narration of a must-read book. I was glad to have listened to Harari’s Sapiens first (with same narrator) so that his way of addressing human patterns of thinking and behaving was familiar to me. As a historical glance at humanity, Sapiens was a fast, engrossing read. 21st Century, on the other hand, takes more time - and sometimes letting it alone for a few days — to think about our current times. Worth it.
If you like doomsday prognosticators then this book is for you. People who forecast “the end is near” have been spotted on street corners for centuries. I had to quit after almost 2 hours into the audio. Harari seems obsessed with The Evil Donald Trump, liking him to the worse thing to hit the world since WWI and WWII. Really? Doesn’t he know Trump will be forgotten 20 years from now?
I enjoyed the book it provoked critical thinking and gave the reader important information about what children should b studying for the future.
Brilliant observations and analysis. Funny at times. Skewering age old institutions with aplomb. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Impossible to read and listen to because this guy, though awesome, changes the editions so much. Cool book, wish he, or publisher, would not change the sentence order.
Great book, one of the best. I would highlight his 2018 geopolitical analysis, the pre-Russia invasion of Ukraine, and so so more. Brilliant! Highly recommend!
What an amazing book....made me think deeply about a wide range of stuffs. One can't read this book and be the same person.
Very well narrated meditation on the present time issue of human condition. Another excellent book by an excellent author.
I enjoyed reading Harari. I found the narrator’s reading excellent and the content of all three books very interesting. I would highly recommend these books it is well worth the read.
A hard book to get into for the first couple of hours as some of it sounds like vague speculations, but eventually it proves to be very deep, thought out and insightful.
Extremely thought provoking, particularly the growing impacts of technology and AI that we know is coming in next decade. Recommended reading for anyone willing to listen to challenges about our future.
