  • Description
    100,000 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 world be like in the millennia to come? In Sapiens, Dr Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical - and sometimes devastating - breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, 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 future.'Here is a simple reason why Sapiens has risen explosively to the ranks of an international bestseller. It tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language. You will love it!' - Jared Diamond

    Author Info
    • Dr Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind has become an international phenomenon attracting a legion of fans from Bill Gates and Barack Obama to Chris Evans and Jarvis Cocker, and is published in over 45 languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was in the Top Ten for over nine months in paperback. His follow-up to Sapiens, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow was also a Top Ten Bestseller and was described by the Guardian as even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens.

    Review depends only for Print Quality

    I just don't think Shivibooks seller has any proper printed copy of this book. Even after one replacement, the book that has come has hazy photos, illustrations same like the photocopied ones which are available in street side shops. I just want a full refund for the item. May be it was my bad decision to order it from Flipkart.

    Just awesome book

    This book is really nice and worth-reading. I took a course with the same title by the same author on coursera and then ordered this book as a reference.

    Good part:
    The book tells the story of evolution of Homo Sapiens for last 1 million years. The author has explained how Homo Sapiens came into existence, the extinction of other 5 types of human species living on earth 100,000 years ago, the life of Homo Sapiens in stone age, agricultural revolution, comparison of different types of societi...

    Really Nice

    this is by no means the original one. ie the genuine print. but that's alright. the genuine print Costs 500-600 rupees in online and offline shops. for for the price this is a good option. it doesn't look cheap, However the quality of the pages is sub par. but is completely readable the images are in black and white. if you just want to enjoy the book within a budget this is the way to go.
    also it came with a bookmark. a small detail, but a nice one

    Simply awesome

    One of the best books I've read in a long long time. The title is truly befitting, since it encompasses all the social l, political and economic aspects of our society. From the social structure of the stone age humans, to the modern world, it is a truly thrilling journey. A must read!

    Wonderful

    I have received the book in one day. I have ordered the special collectors edition in full color, the page quality and print is good. images are in color. but the book is little damaged in one top corner, which might have caused during transport. they have to handle it properly to avoid damages or packaging should be strong enough to avoid damages to the product. otherwise it's good. have got a bookmark as well. thank u Flipkart.

    Awesome

    Absolutely Brilliant !!
    Sapiens is a mesmerising tale of 'US'-the human being.The readers might not find all the answers lying deep beneath the unturned pages of history but they surely will get to discover the beauty and vastness of human existence,the pros and cons of some of the major revolutions,and above all they will learn the art of questioning,which is,in my opinion,is the sign of a powerful book.With his point-to-point analysis and a marvellous perspective towards History, Author Ha...
