Sapiens: A Complete Summary - A Brief History of Humankind

Seventy thousand years ago, there were at least six different human species on earth. They were insignificant animals whose ecological impact was less than that of fireflies or jellyfish. Today, there is only one human species left: Us. Homo sapiens. But we rule this planet. 

Sapiens, the book, takes us on a breath-taking ride through our entire human history, from its evolutionary roots to the age of capitalism and genetic engineering, to uncover why we are the way we are. Sapiens focuses on key processes that shaped humankind and the world around it, such as the advent or agriculture, the creation of money, the spread of religion and the rise of the nation state. Unlike other books of its kind, Sapiens takes a multi-disciplinary approach that bridges the gaps between history, biology, philosophy and economics in a way never done before. Furthermore, taking both the macro and micro view, Sapiens conveys not only what happened and why, but also how it felt for individuals. 

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind is a book by Professor Yuval Noah Harari first published in Hebrew in Israel in 2011, and in English in 2014. Harari cites Jared Diamond’s Guns, Germs, and Steel (1997) as one of the greatest inspirations for the book by showing that it was possible to “ask very big questions and answer them scientifically”.

    I don’t think I have ever read anything so poorly written as this little summary of a masterpiece. The grammar, the syntax, the logic are all infantile. Read the real thing, not this insulting version.

    Very enlightening history from a new perspective that really made me think about our place in the universe as humans. Very exciting read, would recommend to anyone who would like to be challenged!

    Great book. I learned an extensive amount of human history and our unique advantages. The four week plan at the end of the book was also interesting and I'm going to incorporate some of the ideas to my business, especially around creating unquestioned ideologies or imagined worlds. I see it helping with my company culture.

    At times my work slows down and I take advantage to read books but I found that I don't usually finish long books. I guess it's the constant start and stop in longer books that really exhaust my enthusiasm. This summary book was a breeze to read and did it all in one sitting.

    The book left my mind in a blurr. I think it was so much information in one run through but I learned so much! I wish the author could also make an audible version so I can revisit the book on my morning commutes. I highly recommend it if you enjoy history, anthropology, psychology or just looking to challenge assumptions on our history!
  • Nice info!

    Reading this book give me additional information on how modern humans evolved. Lot of theories and scientific explanation on how we evolved and other animals turn into their features. This is an interesting book to read, explains it good. This is a good reading book for students that wan't to know more about evolution.
