God helps those who help themselves- so did this just obsolve God of all responsibilities? Are you aware of the significance of Nicolae Ceaușescu final speech in 1989? What is a soul? Are we just algorithms? Are we losing out to AI? Phew!
I began listening to this book after a deliberate delay from when I completed his first book- Sapiens, a brief history of humankind. And I was not disappointed. Once again, Yuval Noah Harari puts forth countless arguments that makes you think and may be react upon but as with Sapiens, this book too is an overload of information and the added suppositions.
Give it a go.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The book could have been so much better. Few might be in awe of Chris’s journeys and few would be inspired and what passed through Chris’s mind during his travels we may not entirely decipher but for the author to draw parallels from his own life and to set aside a chapter to himself did not add to the charm of this book.
A good read but nothing more.
