Yuval Noah Harari, the man behind the world-wide smash hit, Sapiens, is back with an equally brilliant, unique, compelling and revealing book that talks about our future and what we need to do to turn into demi-Gods. The 20th century brought our kind numerous struggles and troubles, but we managed to prevail and be victorious against plague, starvation, war, and other horrifying things.
It might be hard for some of us to understand, but all of those things that humanity went through were necessary in order for us to change and transform into better, stronger, smarter beings. The challenges of the previous century are not nearly as hard today and now we've got more folks dying from eating too much food than from starvation.
More people pass away from old age and not from all kinds of nasty diseases. And finally, more people take their own lives than are murdered by bandits, terrorists and the military. The regular Joes and Janes in the United States are most likely to die at the local McDonalds than to be blown up to pieces by the Middle-Eastern terrorists. So, with the horrors of the past behind us, what new challenges are we to face in the 21st century?
We are the modern-day gods on this planet, and it's up to us to determine our own future. Homo Deus is a riveting exploration of the endless possibilities that we're facing right now. What kind of hopes, dreams, and nightmares will define mankind this time? AI? Stopping death? Where do we all go from here? Yuval Noah Harari uses his exceptional writing skills to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all the conscious readers out there.
