Patterns of Life
Planet Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it. Us. We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens?
In this bold and provocative book, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here and where we're going. Sapiens is a thrilling account of humankind's extraordinary history - from the Stone Age to the Silicon Age - and our journey from insignificant apes to rulers of the world.
'Unbelievably good. Jaw dropping from the first word to the last' Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2
Dr Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind has become an international phenomenon attracting a legion of fans from Bill Gates and Barack Obama to Chris Evans and Jarvis Cocker, and is published in nearly forty languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times number one bestseller and was in the top ten for over six months in paperback. His follow-up to Sapiens , Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow was also a top ten bestseller and was described by the Guardian as 'even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens '.
