    This book is quite difficult to review.

    I enjoyed Part 1 about the technological challenges humans will be faced with and how we can adapt. It reminded me that I need to read Homo Deus which hopefully will satisfy that craving for me.

    The rest of the book was more political, religious and philosophical than I usually go for. The title misrepresented the content of the book as there are 21 chapters, not 21 lessons.

    Overall learned quite a bit but I much preferred his other work.

    I received an ARC fr

    Yuval Noah Harari, author of 'Sapiens', which looked at the history of mankind and 'Homo Deus' which looked to the future, is back with '21 Lessons for the 21st Century' a book which very much explores present day issues. As I enjoyed his previous two books I was excited to delve into this collection to see how it would compare. Just as accessible as the others it discusses important topical issues such as fake news, immigration, terrorism, and climate change, to name but a few. I found each top ...more

    As always, masterful and exquisite non-fiction writing as we come to expect from Mr Harari. Delightful, wise and very perceptive. This book can be seen as an expansion and a companion to Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow. The attention of this volume is focused on the Present as opposed to Past or the Future. Some parts will make you feel inspired, others will sow a despair. But it is a relevant and useful book that will give you a plenty to chew on.

    Strongly recommended

    E' una sorta di iper-Bignami sullo stato del mondo presente con brevi proiezioni (vagamente tendenti al catastrofico) sul futuro prossimo venturo. Harari, che è uno storico israeliano di nobile curriculum e che ci tiene a tenersi su,  la chiama “visione sintetica dei processi storici globali”. 

    Un buon saggio di divulgazione. Il condensato di lavori precedenti, dicono di  livello. Si legge facile (ottimo per il treno o, vista la scansione a paragrafi relativamente brevi, anche per la metro; anzi

    Preâmbulo

    As lições que se apresentam neste livro, advém de conversas que o professor Youval Noah Harari teve com várias pessoas: alunos, leitores, investigadores, políticos, etc. A lente que aqui se apresenta não é a de um microscópio, mas sim a lente dos óculos do professor.

    Este espírito não o tive na minha primeira abordagem ao livro, e talvez por isso o tenha afastado inicialmente por discordar do discurso de Harari .

    Primeira parte: “O Desafio Tecnológico”

    Humans have always lived in the age of post-truth. Homo sapiens is a post-truth species, whose power depends on creating and believing fictions. Ever since the Stone Age, self-reinforcing myths have served to unite human collectives. Indeed, Homo sapiens conquered this planet thanks above all to the unique human ability to create and spread fictions.


    As Yuval Noah Hurari states in his introduction, his book Sapiens was about the deep past of human history, Homo Deus was about our deep future, and ...more
