One of Bill Gates' "5 Books I Loved in 2018"

What do we really need to know in today’s world? In twenty-one bite-sized lessons, Yuval Noah Harari explores what it means to be human in an age of bewilderment

From the author of the million copy bestseller Sapiens

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

How can we protect ourselves from nuclear war, ecological cataclysms and technological disruptions? What can we do about the epidemic of fake news or the threat of terrorism? What should we teach our children?

Yuval Noah Harari takes us on a thrilling journey through today’s most urgent issues. The golden thread running through his exhilarating new book is the challenge of maintaining our collective and individual focus in the face of constant and disorienting change. Are we still capable of understanding the world we have created?

About the Author

Prof 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 over forty-five languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was in the Top Ten for over nine 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’.

Industry Reviews

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

Its a must read book!

Fabulous book. Perspectives that seem to be from the other side of the mountain, often or never thought of by more restricted minds. Broadens one's thought base, and presents hard to refute arguments as to why solutions to humankind's problems can only be developed by a global approach, in contrast to much of the apparent backward trends today. Want to hear more from this man--a much need voice that hopefully can contribute to paving a pathway to a viable future for sapiens. (Couldn't use the genus identifier due to the restricted word filter!)
