I am a fan of Harari but this is a waste of money and time. I have read both his previous books. Sapiens was brilliant. Homo Deus was fascinating. This one is long winded, strained in thought and logic. I couldn't complete it. Don't bother buying.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. I often found the need to pause and consider the implications of the questions it asks. It spawned a lot of great conversations with friends and I think I'll read it again soon to help me absorb and better remember some of the excellent analysis on ideologies and philosophies.
It struck me while studying this book that a key to the peaceful survival and thriving of the human race is the need for more deeper conversations and then better decisions that aren't based on imagined realities.
Of the 21 conversation topics in this book I particularly valued those on equality, community, immigration, humility, secularism, truth, meaning and meditation.
Plenty here to enrich my ongoing conversations with my clients, colleagues, friends and family.
Perhaps the big topic will be from a line about three quarters of the way into the book "The big question facing humans isn't 'what is the meaning of life?' but rather, 'how do we get out of suffering?"
