Description

**FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE MILLION COPY BESTSELLER SAPIENS**

Yuval Noah Harari returns in August 2018 with a new book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century. In bringing his focus to the here and now, Harari will help us to grapple with a world that is increasingly hard to comprehend, encouraging us to focus our minds on the essential questions we should be asking ourselves today. Employing his trademark entertaining and lucid style, Harari will examine some of the world's most urgent issues, including terrorism, fake news and immigration, as well as turning to more individual concerns, from resilience and humility to meditation.

Review quote

"Truly mind-expanding... Ultra-topical... Harari's big selling point [is] the ambition and breadth of his work, smashing together unexpected ideas into dazzling observations." * Guardian * "There is surely no one alive who is better at explaining our world than Yuval Noah Harari - he is the lecturer we all wish we'd had at university. Reading this book, I must have interrupted my partner a hundred times to pass on fascinating things I'd just read. Harari has done it again - 21 Lessons is, simply put, a crucial book." -- Adam Kay "Erudite, illuminating, vivid. [Harari's] lessons suggest new ways of thinking about current problems... a splendid, sobering, stirring call to arms." * Sunday Times * "Fascinating... compelling... [Harari] has teed up a crucial global conversation about how to take on the problems of the 21st century." -- Bill Gates * New York Times * "The great thinker of our age." * The Times *
