Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, read by Derek Perkins. 

From the author of the multimillion copy best seller Sapiens.

Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus looked to the future. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century explores the present. 

How can we protect ourselves from nuclear war, ecological cataclysms and technological disruptions? What can we do about the epidemic of fake news or the threat of terrorism? What should we teach our children? 

Yuval Noah Harari takes us on a thrilling journey through today’s most urgent issues. The golden thread running through his exhilarating new book is the challenge of maintaining our collective and individual focus in the face of constant and disorienting change. Are we still capable of understanding the world we have created?

To listen and to make listen

While most of the lessons in the book are probably thoughts you already had, it is a good recap of where and what we are now in the 21st century, and the issues we face as humans.

Zealots beware!

To me, Sapiens was easily the best book I ever came across, and it marked the beginning of my journey through a lot of scientific books. I couldn't finish Homo Deus, I found it to be too speculative.
Now, the 21 Lessons are easily the best book I listened to in years. There's a lot to learn, not just about the 21st century.
Check it out!

Amazon book

many moments of truth pop up in this book. probably one of the best book every written. If you have read the forst two, Homo sapiens and Homo Deus, you might find the start of this as remake of the first two. but it gets much more interesting afterwards

Don't binge listen to Harari's books

I started this book right after finishing Homo Deus and Sapiens, so a lot of the information in this book was repetitive.

But still, jaw dropping information! The whole book is truly eye-opening. Also loved the narrators voice.

Excellent reading, wonderful narrator and very clear ideas

Similar to his other books, this one is a masterpiece, with his analytical view of the world and the matters around it, he manages to talk about the deepest questions with an creative look. I totally recomend this book.

The book and its audio production is worth every penny

Debunking everything, even one self and self-constructs is easier said than done. Yuval does that with panache. Although at times the book might give you a sense of dejection, it’s only because life is not a pretty story and realizing that is painful. Go for it.

Must read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot recommend this book enough - it puts the world as you know it into a clear and metholodical perspective with insightful comments, personal anecdotes and factual references. It talks about the science behind the decisions we make and the emotions we feel. Very relevant, very current and very interesting. I love yuval noah harari

Sublime.

The syory took me through the depths of my mind. Twisting and turning what I understand and thought I understand. The narrators voice and diction seem to be tailor made for a grand ep like this.

Pastors, please read!!!

I loved the book.. I had read Homodeus and it reads like Homodeus. This book will cause you to ponder on the realities of the near future. it analyzes the danger of the most probable options and tries to give way out. it is a book of questions, few answers and numerous insights. I would like my pastor to read it.


Yuval is an unrepentant gay atheists, his sexual and non religious identity is pasted allover his ideologies, you can't help but agree with some of his argument and reasoning. He has poked holes in many popular narrative. even though he is asking more questions than answers, it is a good read. don't read it alone. it is a book that you want to read and discuss.


my most favorable quote is in the intro
"in a world deluged by information, clarity is power"


the narrator did a great job too. I bought the hard copy, so while I listened, I marked insightful pages and noted areas I disagreed with...

Simply brilliant

Harari addresses all the big questions and gives surprising but very convincing answers. This could be a milestone in a new era of secularism and a valuable asset in shaping a future we really want.

Great Essays from Harari

Enjoyable to listen to these 21 essays from Harari. Having found Sapiens extremely inspiring and novel in its synthesis and thought about human beings, and also enjoyed Homo Deus, I find these essays to be just as enjoyable. He addresses a number of more contemporary topics, like terrorism, which is an essay that to me is an instant reread, and would feature in my compendium on classical texts on terrorism.

The perfume

It is easy to like the books of Yuval Harari as he distills as a Mister Grenouille of Patrick Susskinds "Das Parfum" the essences of many sociological theories into a perfume that slowly evaporates into a stream of compelling stories. It is still possible to get a hint of the originals, but it is exactly the composition and the right dosing that makes it unique. Of course the comparison does only go so far and I do not imply the looks of the author nor the crimes that Yuval Harari had to commit in order to produce this masterpiece.

Regression to the mean

Unfortunately, the book cannot live up to the authors reputation.
The beginning is good, but nothing he didn’t already say in the excellent „Homo Deus“.
The middle is dragging along with shallow and randomly seeming thoughts.
The end is just boring.

Oh, and he totally missed the point about „Ex Machina“. The AI was so female precisely because the protagonist was male and this was „her“ ticket to best fulfill her designed utility function (tricking a human to let her out). And because „she“ was created by a sexist and lonely technocrat, of course.

Great book for understanding today's issues

This book provides a general overview about all the things going on in the world at the moment and the challenges we face in the near future. Religion, politics and society in relation to each other and to the issues of climate change and technological disruption are the topics discussed. Totally recommended!

Durchweg kritisch - durchaus berechtigt

Leider beschäftigt er sich am Ende wie jeder von ihm Kritisierte nur mit sich selbst
