Annotation

FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE MILLION COPY BESTSELLER SAPIENS Yuval Noah Harari returns in August 2018 with a new book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.

Publisher Description

Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus looked to the future. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century explores the present.

In bringing his focus to the here and now, Harari will help us to grapple with a world that is increasingly hard to comprehend, encouraging us to focus our minds on the essential questions we should be asking ourselves today. Employing his trademark entertaining and lucid style, Harari will examine some of the world?s most urgent issues, including terrorism, fake news and immigration, as well as turning to more individual concerns, from resilience and humility to meditation.

Author Biography

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. His two books, Sapiens- A Brief History of Humankind and Homo Deus- A Brief History of Tomorrow, have become global bestsellers, with more than 12 million copies sold, and translations in more than forty-five languages.

Review

"The great thinker of our age." The Times

"Truly mind-expanding... Ultra-topical... Harari's big selling point [is] the ambition and breadth of his work, smashing together unexpected ideas into dazzling observations." Guardian

"Erudite, illuminating, vivid. [Harari's] lessons suggest new ways of thinking about current problems... a splendid, sobering, stirring call to arms." Sunday Times

"There is surely no one alive who is better at explaining our world than Yuval Noah Harari - he is the lecturer we all wish we'd had at university. Reading this book, I must have interrupted my partner a hundred times to pass on fascinating things I'd just read. Harari has done it again - 21 Lessons is, simply put, a crucial book." -- Adam Kay

"More comprehensible [than Sapiens and Homo Deus]... showing you things you thought you knew about in a completely new way... I find Harari's writing exhilarating." Radio Times
