Reviews

"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 "Spellbinding... This is a very intelligent book, full of sharp insights and mordant wit... It is a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart... It is hard to imagine anyone could read this book without getting an occasional, vertiginous thrill." -- David Runciman Guardian "What elevates Harari above many chroniclers of our age is his exceptional clarity and focus." -- Josh Glancy Sunday Times "A remarkable book, full of insights and thoughtful reinterpretations of what we thought we knew about ourselves and our history... One measure of Harari's achievement is that one has to look a long way back - to 1934, in fact, the year when Lewis Mumford's Technics and Civilization was published - for a book with comparable ambition and scope." -- John Naughton Guardian "I think the mark of a great book is that it not only alters the way you see the world after you've read it, it also casts the past in a different light. In Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted & accessible manner. I don't normally ask for autographs but I got a bit starstruck & asked him to sign my copy of his book after we'd had a conversation for my show on BBC 6Music. His inscription reads: 'The future is in your hands' - a good thing to remember when such great changes are afoot." -- Jarvis Cocker Mail on Sunday
