    Description

    Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically acclaimed New York Times best seller and international phenomenon Sapiens, returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanity's future and our quest to upgrade humans into gods.

    Over the past century, humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. This may seem hard to accept, but as Harari explains in his trademark style - thorough yet riveting - famine, plague, and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists, and criminals put together. The average American is 1,000 times more likely to die from binging at McDonalds than from being blown up by Al Qaeda.

    What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet Earth, what destinies will we set ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams, and nightmares that will shape the 21st century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.

    With the same insight and clarity that made Sapiens an international hit and a New York Times best seller, Harari maps out our future.

    "Derek Perkins narrates the audiobook with an authentic excitement that engages listeners... Science enthusiasts will undoubtedly devour this audiobook, while others may wish Perkins had taught their high school science class." ( AudioFile)

    A story of being and becoming human

    A great intellectual read, as the first book. If you're analytical person you'll find some confirmation of theories...if you're curious, you'll learn, if skeptical, you'll rediscover. History, Present and Future

    Another masterpiece with great narration

    Certainly a book that gives us food for thought and covers a wide range of topics in an incisive and sometimes humorous way. Coupled with the expert narration skills of Derek Perkins, this latest book by Yuval Harari is delivered effectively and is not a chore to get through (despite the complexity underlying some of the concepts). Compared to my review of Sapiens I have dropped a star because I felt some bits repeated themselves and I think it still needed a chapter at the end that imagines a world with a few different scenarios: computers / data coexisting with humans rather than been surpassed, or some other type of combination. As it stands, I felt the conclusion was rather abrupt. Looking forward to yet more soon!

    Free will does not exist

    I loved Homo Sapiens. I was deceived by Homo Deus. Sure it is entertaining and provides a vast material for story telling. But there is a superficial treatment of religion, confusion between liberal and liberalism, and above a weak argument to demonstrate that free will does not exist. Interesting the criticism to dataism.

    Good, but...

    You really don't need to read "Sapien" prior to reading this. A large portion of the information in this book was covered in Sapien. If you listen to the two of them back to back, as I did, "Homo Deus" may come off as redundant. Because of this, I found myself drifting off a lot. I'd like to give this another try (maybe in text version) in the near future.

    Fun But With A Couple O' Caveats--

    The only reason I'm not giving this a 5-star rating for the story is because this might not be what you think it's going to be. I thought it was going to be a more humane version of something like Michio Kaku's "Physics of the Future."
    Nooooooot quite...
    First of all, I had a blast listening to "Homo Deus". Harari is a sublime writer, oh so humorous and wry, and Derek Perkins is flawless in his delivery.
    But let me say: I haven't read/listened to "Sapiens", but I think this book might have quite a bit of the same text/situations. After all, Harari himself says you might've heard it before, but one has to know how we got from point A all the way to where we are now. This happens fairly frequently throughout the book. For me, that's no problem: It was engaging, enlightening, entertaining through and through.
    Then there's the fact that there's not a whole lot of time given to what may happen in the future. Sure, plague, famine, war and all that have been made manageable and now we're seeking immortality, bliss, and divinity... but, uhm, how exactly? Harari makes a few suggestions, and you get soooo tantalizingly close to some pretty mind-blowing ideas, but then he pulls back and Wham! "From a historical perspective," "in the past," "back in the days of the Crusades," stuff like that. Back to how we got here.
    Okay, that said, this is an utterly delightful book that explains humanism, liberalism, Data-ism, any kind of ism you ever wanted to know about in a profound and witty way. You'll hear about nanotechnology, genetic engineering, and artificial intelligence. If you like religious studies, history of all kinds, some light science, this is for you. If you want to know why Millennials are the way they are, why the election went the way it did (Facebook, my friends), why we're into a whole new world with new economic, ecological outlooks, this book is for you.
    And if you want to wind up questioning EVERYthing you've ever believed about ANYthing, go for it.
    And if you want to look at animals in a different light from this day forward?
    Harari's got that too...

    Mandatory reading

    As other reviewers have noted, the third part of this book is the most impressive. The first 40% of the book felt like a "... last time, in sapiens ..." rehashing, but it's welcomed and genuinely different from sapiens. The latter half of the book is new, engaging and absolutely brilliant. Harari is an entertaining writer and his synthesis of information is concise and easy to follow. I imagine 10 years from now this book will appear as click bait (or whatever equivalent we then have) saying "This is the book that predicted it all."

    A Realist's View of our Future Reality

    I really liked Harari's previous work, Sapiens. A lot. But, holy crap, where did this come from??!

    This book is so expansive, so entertaining, so prescient, and so crammed with refreshing wisdom that I don't even know where to begin!

    I'll start by saying this is one of the top three modern philosophical EPICS of our time. It paints a future that is not only believable, but -for the most part - unavoidable. Its common sense anecdotes are insightful, which seems like an oxymoron at first, but makes sense when you really think about it. Like Jerry Seinfeld, Harari has a way of making you see reality through a lens that you never knew existed before; or maybe you knew it existed, but were always too afraid to hold it up to your iris.

    Everyone should read this book. I don't say that lightly, either. EVERYONE. It will make you see reality differently. And, at the end of the day, any book that can do that is WELL WORTH your time!

    Lefty Brain Washing

    The next time I purchase a book by a Communist fool, I'd like a warning. I switched off once I heard him describe Karl Marx as a brilliant economist ... really ... that's how you describe a lunatic, classist turd who couldn't even manage his own finances.

    First book is better and enough :)

    Just think that the second was a somewhat revision in a lot of parts, of the first book.

    There was actually not a very much on future projections, as much as the title suggests or that the book may have tried to pursue.

    I actually do wish there is a work done in the near future of an actual content true to its cover tittle

    Both Ways

    I enjoyed the progression of the monologue from one religion to the next. But, what if Dataism is not a endpoint, but it is a integral part of homo sapien? meaning that, it's in our DNA. Then it would not something we are moving towards, it would be something that has always been a part of us.

    In the last subchapter of the book, "A Ripple in the Data Flow", Harari retreats. He tries to have it both ways. Does he do this because he does not believe anything he has written (before that) or is he just trying to make us feel better? Either way, he backed out. I think, like the rest of us, he doesn't have a clue.

    More Human than Human (8x)

    “Every day millions of people decide to grant their smartphone a bit more control over their lives or try a new and more effective antidepressant drug. In pursuit of health, happiness and power, humans will gradually change first one of their features and then another, and another, until they will no longer be human.”
    ― Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow

    Harari takes us, with this continuation to his blockbuster book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, from the past to the future. This book shares a lot of the same limitations of the previous book. But because "speculation" is inherent in writing about the future, Harari's jumps are easier to forgive when talking about tomorrow than when talking about today.

    I'm a diabetic and have an insulin pump and I've thought of myself, only partially in jest, as a early, unsophisticated, cyborg the last ten years. I walk around with my iphone plugged into my ears, my artificial pancreas plugged into my thigh, my sensor for my pump plugged into my stomach. It isn't very neat. We have miles to go before all of this technology becomes aesthetically amazing, and loses all the wires and clunky functionality, but it still gives me pause about the future. My friend's Tesla drives by itself, big data seems able to predict what I will buy next, my smart phone really is smart. Perhaps we are all surfing towards some Omega Point.

    I have a friend who is a Transhumanist and it has been interesting to hear him discuss the values and virtues of Transhumanism. I'm a little more hesitant. I'm no Luddite, but I DO worry about these big technological/cultural/commercial shifts. Will technology make Homo Sapiens the next Homo Neanderthalensis? Will these gains through AI, technology, genetic modification, etc., be well-thought-out? Harari hedges by saying he doesn't know what the future brings (If he did, perhaps we should just join his church), but is only using this discussion to suggest the type of ethical and moral and even survival discussions we SHOULD probably be having. As we incrementally crawl towards some form of technological singularity, perhaps we need to give pause to not just the benefits, but costs of self-driving cars and sex robots.

    Nothing too interesting or new after Sapiens

    No novel ideas or concepts that weren't explored in Sapiens. Basically a survey of a few ideas in history and some random futurism. A lot less data and evidence driven than Sapiens. An extended. but interesting opinion piece

    Powerful and gripping!!

    Sapiens was always going to be a hard act to follow, but the author was able to not only outline our current evolutionary trajectory, but also provide a well thought out perspective of our current collective state and in so doing marrying what might be (the future) with the past and our present. Overall, an excellent book and yet another gripping performance by the narrator- definitely a must read!!!

    An eye-opener for conscious people

    An eye-opener for all humanists and conscious people of today.
    The first hour plus the last hour produce the actual point of the author. The 20hrs in between are a very well done scientific round up of human history, consciousness, religion and psyche that is a charm to read and give the background to the authors final claims and theories.

    This book is highly recommended to any human beeing that is asking themselves where our current data-driven approach could lead us as society.

    Thought provoking taken to a new level!

    Harari manages to point out the big picture and the (yet) empty parts of the canvas of mankind.
    Loved Perkins voice!
    When finishing listening to this podcast, the first thought that struck me was: Who or what wrote this book that is so appealing (to me) and why did I encounter it (or viceversa)?
