Review

"A rare book...thrilling and breathtaking" The Observer "I have just read Yuval Noah Harari's book Sapiens. It is brilliant. Most likely the best - and I have read very many - on the history of humankind. I have never read anything better" -- Henning Mankell "Full of shocking and wondrous stories" Sunday Times "Sapiens is a starburst of a book, as enjoyable as it is stimulating" Sunday Express "Reading it is like having a mental massage, cold shower and brisk workout, and all in the comfort of your own home" -- Esther Rantzen Mail on Sunday

Book Description

Yuval Harari's international bestseller is a thrilling account of humankind's extraordinary history - from insignificant apes to rulers of the world

I bought the Kindle version of this book. This book is a revelation in many ways. The journey started in the Cave and has reached the Cyber Cafe. This book is just a history of the journey undertaken by Humans. Perhaps, not by humans, but by Homo Sapiens to be precise. I was much more shocked to realise at the end of the book that this book was originally written in Hebrew and was later translated into English. However, the way the book has been made, it doesnt seem to be a translated one. References to India are quite a few. Though the beginning was a sort of unveiling of the portrait of Sapiens, the flow and the depth starts lacking in the middle and towards the end. Perhaps, that is because, the end portions of the book which are mostly the account on contemporary developments in the lives of Homo Sapiens are much more familiar to us rather than the accounts of the cave man, the hunter gatherer and the medieval peasant. This is surely a must read. Especially for those who consider humans to be special in the animal world, they are in for a splendid shock.

This is one book to read, a completely different take on human and their social structure and behaviour. I am almost half way thru love it. Well paced and never a dull moment.

On flip side book is slightly thick and it is something you need to read at leisure.

Fascinating tale of homo sapiens covering more than 70 millenia. Thought provoking, sometimes shocking, but always engrossing. Even a peek at the future of our species. Very well written, peppered with wry humour. A must read for anyone interested in where we came from and where we are heading, especially in our world of alternative facts!

This is one of those books, which can have a deep impact on the way you look at things. Gives a very vivid picture of where we (human race) has come from, answers lots of questions about why we are the way we are and goes deep into the human mind, which has developed over centuries and continue to evolve, though at a higher pace in recent times.

It sets the context of our very existence. A must read for anyone and everyone who wants to understand themselves and people around them.

If Harari would stick to history... --this could be a good book. Example: He has Barack Obama as a centerpiece in the book for his under lying reason/agenda. Harari's left wing, progressive opinions pervades large sections of the book. Example: he applauds American Democrats while dissing the Republicans and misrepresents their goals and agenda. From politics to race he has an ax to grind. Harari takes down the existence of a supreme being with equal gusto to his left wing views. If Your politics runs well left of left and you subscribe to an atheist's beliefs... --have a good read with a fellow traveler, --a part time 'historian' with an agenda.

For a non-fiction book, this is a real page turner. It's packed with interesting information and insights. Biology, history, the rise of homo sapiens, religion, money, capitalism...there are so many areas this book touches on. I found it a gripping, amazing read and love that I have learnt so much of new stuff.

The most intriguing book i've ever read in my life. It almost answered or at least tried to ponder over every question about the human life i ever had. Please read this book with an open mind as it challenges some of the most popular conventional wisdoms of our world and be prepared to be amazed at what lies once you let go of the veil of illusion this world has put up on you
