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.

Great as usual

Harari is one of today's best minds. if you like Sapiens and Homodeus you must listen to these 21 lessons.
The reader is very good as well.

Good book but a lot of Sapiens ideas recycled

I had already read Sapiens from Harari and I was disappointed because much of this book content was already included in Sapiens (where ideas where better developed with great stories).

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.

Everyone should read this after Sapiens

I’ve not read Homo Deus but found this a perfect follow up to Sapiens. This is what we need to be studying and teaching. So much energy wasted on so much nonsense and these books enlighten although also frighten a bit. Now to work out where to from here for my generation but more importantly my children and then..... can I even contemplate their children?? Will I even have grandchildren?

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.

Just as riveting as his earlier works

Prof. Harari's third installment speaks about the present issues humankind has to deal with. The arguments are based on, but not limited to, his discussions from Homo Sapiens and Homo Deus. He adds much to the narrative and discusses many issues pertinent to today, making this book well worth your time.

Thoroughly enjoyed the way Mr. Perkins narrated the book. Listening to it was a pleasure!

A must read for people of the 21st Century

This book presents many important topics that we must all revise frequently for the rest of our lives. So many crucial points that I wish I could have it embedded in my mind to pull out in all important conversations that I will have.

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.

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!

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.

Not bad, but at odds with itself at times...

As already stated in the title to this review, this is not a bad book and not a bad audio book either. My only gripe with this book is that the author tends to overextend into fields of science in which she clearly only has very basic knowledge. This coupled with some incongruities between the ealry and later chapters did kind of annoy me at times.
But all in all I must say that this book does at least touch on some interesting topics in some interesting ways, and is definitley worth the listen if you want something to jog your mind a bit, be it in confusion, anger, or genuine interesst in the topics and/or her way of touching on them...

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.
