Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus shows us where we're going.

War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict.

Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation.

Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out – but immortality is in.

What does our future hold?

Yuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling phenomenon Sapiens envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century – from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers?

Industry Reviews

"Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before." -- Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking, Fast and Slow
"Shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted and accessible manner" * Jarvis Cocker *
"Even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens" -- Kazuo Ishiguro * Guardian Books of the Year *
"An exhilarating book that takes the reader deep into questions of identity, consciousness and intelligence" * Observer *
"A brilliantly original, thought-provoking and important study of where mankind is heading." * Evening Standard *
"Spellbinding... a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart" * Guardian *
"An intoxicating brew of science, philosophy and futurism." * Mail on Sunday *
"Yuval Noah Harari is the most entertaining and thought-provoking writer of non-fiction at the moment. As with Sapiens, you finish the book feeling much wiser" -- Matt Haig
"It is thrilling to watch such a talented author trample so freely across so many disciplines... Harrari's skill lies in the way he tilts the prism in all these fields and looks at the world in different ways, providing fresh angles on what we thought we knew... the result is scintillating" -- John Thornhill * Financial Times *
"What elevates Harari above many chroniclers of our age is his exceptional clarity and focus." -- Josh Glancy * Sunday Times *

Interesting history but poor philosophy


The author's previous book "Sapiens" was excellent, so I was looking forward to reading this sequel. While some of the historical data is interesting, I was disappointed overall with the book, because of his shallow grasp of the philosophical issues he raises. He speaks about controversial philosophical issues as if science has already proven the answers (e.g. there is no soul, there is no god), but his simplistic arguments are flawed, indicating that has no deep understanding of the vast philosophical literature debating such questions.



Mind Boggling a serious look into the near future


Great conversation piece



I would buy this book again


You have to read this book slowly and think about. ( I wiil love to explain more about this book, but even I don't have almost no problem reading in English because I was a librarian in Chile,, it is difficult for me to explain my ideas in English)

As good a read as "Sapiens"


Not the kind of book you fly through in one day. Packed with ideas and information that begs mulling over. One of my favourite authors.
