Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind Book by Yuval Noah Harari
Fire gave us power. Farming made us hungry for more. Money gave us purpose. Science made us deadly. This is the thrilling account of our extraordinary history – from insignificant apes to rulers of the world.
‘I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who’s interested in the history and future of our species’ Bill Gates
