Yuval Noah Harari’s 400-page history of mankind is a timely meditation on the nature of Homo sapiens’ fickle path: a history not made by great leaders, determinism, guns, germs or steel, but by unexpected nuances of existence. Harari concludes that Homo sapiens prevailed by happenstance, a capacity for language and socialization, curiosity, mercantile fervor and technological prowess – which may yet destroy everything. Harari’s perspective moves among the telescope, microscope and stethoscope, hailing the synchronicities of capitalism, religion and technology. He tracks happiness as a measuring stick of progress. Harari is uneasy about humanity as the intelligent designer of a new “superhuman” – a cyborgian, a machine whose inorganic longings may not include happiness. While always neutral on matters of personal belief, getAbstract recommends this roiling, off-the-beaten path tour de force to readers with patience and open minds, even those who might disagree along the way.

    Why don't you have the rights to let me read the abstract in Italy while with Blinkist I can?

      Thank you for your valid comment, Dario Melpignano. getAbstract as a rule only presents abstracts in territories approved by the rights holders.This so far unfortuntely didn't cover Italy and we have no indication that any other service received a respective license. getAbstract however contacted the rights holder again and as a rule aims to present all outstanding titles on a global scale.

    Disappointing that the summary for one of the most significant books of this year isn't available in the UK.
