100000 years ago at least six human species inhabited the earth Today there is just one Us Homo sapiens How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms How did we come to believe in gods nations and human rights; to trust money books and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy timetables and consumerism And what will our w. Is there anything dangerous than dissatisfied and irresponsible gods who don't know what they want What a fantastic book I can see why everyone from Bill Gates to Barack Obama was raving about it It's an extremely compelling accessible history almost like a novelization of humankindI've read a few of these brief history of the world books most notably A History of the World in 100 Objects and Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything I liked both but neither is as engaging as this book Also Harari's book stays vague on the physics dinosaurs and such unlike Bryson's work making this not so much about the whole universe but specifically about humans Or I should clarify homo sapiensMost of all I like how easy to digest the author makes all this information I have a lot of respect for authors who can present something complex in simple terms I've always liked the uote attributed to Einstein “If You Can’t Explain it to a Six Year Old You Don’t Understand it Yourself” Anyone with a thesaurus can make something seem dense and complicated than it is; it's much harder to explain something long and complicated in a way that everyone can enjoyAnd it does read like a really exciting and fascinating novel Harari takes us through the history of human development and migration through the Cognitive Revolution view spoilera sudden increase in cognitive ability around 70000 years ago not the 1950s intellectual movement hide spoiler

קיצור תולדות האנושות‎ Ḳitsur toldot ha enoshutEties the animals and plants around us and even our personalities Have we become happier as history has unfolded Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors And what if anything can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come Bold wide ranging and provocative Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human our thoughts our actions our power and our futu. It is again unpopular opinion time It seems it becomes a rule for me not to enjoy a book that everyone seems to love Well someone has to Here we go with the review Prepare your tomatoes and raw eggs someone actually threw a raw egg at me once for fun but it bounced from my bum Sapiens’ beginning was fantastic I loved the author’s voice and the information about the early days of the human kind was fascinating I did not read any non fiction about the origin of humans so I was excited to understand our origins better I could not stop highlighting interesting passages to include in my review or to read later Here are some of the ones that picked my interest “It’s relatively easy to agree that only Homo sapiens can speak about things that don’t really exist and believe six impossible things before breakfast You could never convince a monkey to give you a banana by promising him limitless bananas after death in monkey heaven”“Telling effective stories is not easy The difficulty lies not in telling the story but in convincing everyone else to believe it Much of history revolves around this uestion how does one convince millions of people to believe particular stories about gods or nations or limited liability companies Yet when it succeeds it gives Sapiens immense power because it enables millions of strangers to cooperate and work towards common goals”However everything started to go downhill from somewhere in the middle of Part II From an eager and excited reader I slowly became pissed off disappointed and struggled to finish I had several problems that plagued my reading experience and I plan to exemplify them below First of all I soon grew tired of the author’s ironic and condescending humor His ego was transpiring from all his words and his personal opinions and the way he tried to enforce them annoyed me and Secondly I felt like many of his assumptions and extrapolations had no proof and they only represent the author’s personal opinion For example the way he supported for the whole book that humans were better of as hunter gathers without bringing no real arguments to support his opinionFinally I had a problem with the scope of Sapiens As the titles suggests the book tries to be A Brief History of Humankind I believe he did not succeed very well to do that and the reason is that it is uite impossible to do what the author planned in less than 500 pages The task is too vast The result is mix of everything with no structure jumping from one subject to another and confusing the reader The information was too vague too general it all resembled a set of interesting triviaWhen reading other negative reviews of Sapiens I stumbled repeatedly on a recommendation Guns Germs and Steel The Fates of Human Societies The book was already on my TBR so it is going to be the next read on the subject I hope it will be better
