Review quote

Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before. -- Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking, Fast and Slow Shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted and accessible manner * Jarvis Cocker * Even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens -- Kazuo Ishiguro * Guardian Books of the Year * An exhilarating book that takes the reader deep into questions of identity, consciousness and intelligence * Observer * A brilliantly original, thought-provoking and important study of where mankind is heading. * Evening Standard * Spellbinding... a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart * Guardian * An intoxicating brew of science, philosophy and futurism. * Mail on Sunday * Yuval Noah Harari is the most entertaining and thought-provoking writer of non-fiction at the moment. As with Sapiens, you finish the book feeling much wiser -- Matt Haig It is thrilling to watch such a talented author trample so freely across so many disciplines... Harrari's skill lies in the way he tilts the prism in all these fields and looks at the world in different ways, providing fresh angles on what we thought we knew... the result is scintillating -- John Thornhill * Financial Times * What elevates Harari above many chroniclers of our age is his exceptional clarity and focus. -- Josh Glancy * Sunday Times *
