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War is obsolete.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?

As good a read as "Sapiens"

5

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.

"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
