    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.

    Good first 100 pages

    It was pleasure reading the book, particularly first 100 odd pages. Lucid, captivating, research findings simplified and freely filled with imaginary work which is very aptly presented. Later the author changes from historical vantage point to philosophers view point and from this point, my interest dwindled in book rapidly

    DO NOT BUY!

    The last time I had made a purchase from Flipkart, I was highly disappointed to receive a pirated copy. This time was no different. The sellers have sold me a pirated copy yet again: photocopied pages, damaged spine, poor ink quality and utterly incomprehensible images. Waste of money, as the author is not getting the royalty he deserves.

    Its a xerox copy of a amazing book, seems duplicate. The images in the books are beyond recognition.
    Edit: After this review I got this mail from flipkart, "We request you to edit and re-submit your review by visiting the Edit Review page. We will review it again and make it live on Flipkart.", which I didnt understand.

    Amazing Book !

    This book is highly informative and written in a simple language. It takes a massive view of History - beginning from the cognitive revolution to a few 100 years in the future.

    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...
