    [I received a copy of this book through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.] I read Harari?s two other books (?Sapiens? and ?Homo Deus?), and quite liked them, so when this one was available, I couldn?t help but request it. It did turn out to be an interesting r...

    I've read all of Harari's books and I really like him as a thinker and a writer. This book is wonderful in the way all his books are wonderful and is flawed in the way the rest are. It is an act of bold ambition and also hubris to write a history of the world, answer the meaning of lif...

    To-do full review: i A book about the main topics of discussion today? I'm interested and open to argument and nuance, just make it worthwhile. --- Overall, it reads like a run of the mill survey of key political, technical, and economical topics in the typical direction taken by...

    Adoro Harari. Adorei os dois primeiros livros ? "Sapiens" (2011) e "Homo Deus" (2015). "21 Lessons for the 21st Century" (2018) é um livro diferente dos anteriores, nota-se que foi escrito de forma muito mais rápida, menos amadurecida, mais como resposta ou encomenda, o que ele pr?...

    What can I say about this book that will do it justice? Nothing. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is yet another seminal work by Yuval Noah Harari, which deals with the challenges facing us here and now. He tackles different topics from varying perspectives. Even if you do not agree...

    Global Warming and the Future. How can you write a book about the future if you don?t write about global warming? Or about how mankind is going to become extinct in the next 50 years, according to some scientists? I suppose the author means, if all goes well, this is what will ha...

    Humans have always lived in the age of post-truth. Homo sapiens is a post-truth species, whose power depends on creating and believing fictions. Ever since the Stone Age, self-reinforcing myths have served to unite human collectives. Indeed, Homo sapiens conquered this planet thanks ab...

    Harari sendo Harari. Mais um daqueles livros que mudou a minha perspectiva em uma série de fatores. Da sociedade japonesa ao movimento político atual. O livro pula bastante da discussão sobre super-humanos tocando o mundo do futuro, o que achei ótimo, já que é algo que ele discut...

    Unlike the author's previous books, this one was clearly "written" at the request of publishers; a pure marketing move. This should have been obvious, if not from the painfully commercial title, then from the fact that the author would not have had the time to write anything of subs...

    Yuval Harari is quite simply the best living storyteller in the world of nonfiction. This is due both to his seemingly endless facility with words around difficult concepts, and also to his choice of topics. In his most famous work, "Sapiens," he told the story of humanity up until now...

    If you?ve read Sapiens and Homo Deus (which I really enjoyed), you can skip. This is basically a collection of Harari?s opinions on a group of topics somewhat relevant to today, repackaged from his first two books, with all the same strengths and flaws: good storytelling about ...

    Sapiens explored the past, Homo Deus transported us to the future and 21 Lessons leaves us in the very real, very tragic present. Did I like it more than Sapiens? Yes. Did I like it more than Homo Deus? I don't know yet. Nobody can doubt that Harari is an excellent writer I'm just ...

    I've listened to both Sapiens and Homo Deus and this book follows in the veins of the previous two. Whereas Sapiens attempts a brief history of humankind and Homo Deus looks at the future, 21 Lessons comes smack in the middle and delves into several potential problems for humanity: ...

    NetGalley isn't going to like this, but I did not learn much from this book. I read his two previous books and have been covering Silicon Valley for 30 years. There was nothing new for me in his tech discussion. I also have deep background in religion and history, which he covers exten...

    As always, masterful and exquisite non-fiction writing as we come to expect from Mr Harari. Delightful, wise and very perceptive. This book can be seen as an expansion and a companion to Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow. The attention of this volume is focused on the Present as o...

    I am becoming quite an evangelist for this book. I am keen to discuss it with everyone I know and, when it is published in a couple of months, I?ll be making sure they all read it. Perceptive and witty, seriously well researched, I was mesmerised by Harari?s take on the world as it...

    Society 101 Yuval Harari is well known for his books Sapiens and Homo Deus. He has decided to squander his reputation on a book called 21 Lessons for the 21st Century. The basic problem is that every chapter is the subject of whole shelves of books, and putting them all in one book...
