Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow Reviews

    This is a profoundly shocking piece of writing, a tactic which Yuval Noah Harari uses to great effect in getting readers to think about society today. The book is ostensibly about the future of mankind, but really is a means of highlighting how current trends in science, technology, hu...

    ?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, u...

    Homo Obsoletus The audacious first act, Sapiens, ended with a wild and apocalyptic prophesy - that the Sapiens were cooking up the next epochal revolution that will overshadow the previous three: the cognitive, agricultural and scientific/industrial revolutions. Home Deus, the secon...

    This is a powerful book by a truly insightful author. I recently read Harari's previous great book, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, and I enjoyed this one just as much. There is so much packed into Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, that it is hard to do justice to the book...

    Obviously I need to get a copy of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind because I loved this book. I can't claim to be well-read in the topic of Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, so I'm definitely biased in my opinion that Harari is a genius. Every few pages my copy has lengthy p...

    Harari is a fantastic historian: he writes effortlessly and fascinatingly about historic trends, and has a great big picture perspective of the revolutions and contexts of historical progression. Harari, however, is not a good futurologist and an absolutely terrible cognitive scient...

    This book reads like the author read a number of popular science articles, watched some sci-fi movies, attended a transhumanist meetup, got just a bit high on weed and then started writing. ...

    Certainly a disappointment when compared to Sapiens. The insights were generally already well presented in the earlier book. The section on animal lives is not convincingly warranted for inclusion but more obviously just a passion for the author leading me to feel I was being preached ...

    I?ve only read one other book written by Yuval Noah Harari and that was Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, this follows in the steps of that to the point that it seems more like a sequel even if they can be read in whatever order you wish. Just as Sapiens, Homo Deus is a gripping...

    Shocking. Entertaining. Incredibly thoughtful. Freaking fantastic! One of the most informative books I have ever read. I think Homo Deus poses some excellent questions that make you question your existence. Why do we think of ourselves as superior to all other life forms. Why do we ...

    4.5 stars actually, this book give us a comprehensive look into the near and distant future . Homo sapiens (modern humans) were able to gain dominance over all of nature because of their ability to communicate and to collaborate with each other and because they could use their collecti...

    The book is hugely disappointing. A year or so ago I read an interview with Harari on this book, which was still work in progress, and I found his views on biological inequality (and, to a lesser extent, the decoupling of intelligence from consciousness) very insightful. Actually, it w...

    Sapiens was one of my favorite nonfiction books I've read in the past few years - so I was excited for the sequel. Overall, its very worth it and full of a lot of the interesting high level perspectives and frameworks. But it also lacks the clear structure of a coherent narrative, isn'...

    A great and ausual book. When considering many more books about the same topic, "how we are going to be", Harari's arguments are more than satisfying and his reasonings are both terrifying and educated. I believe his warnings were the most accurate, I could have found on the topic ...

    Now that the Human kind, in the 20th century, has managed to control famine, plague and war, it is ready for it's next challenge. According to Yuval Noah Harari, the main reason that humans have managed to attain such a strong position in this planet is their ability to believe in ...

    Awesome. This book, as the previous one by this author, goes directly to the shelf of my favourites. Some quotes. "Unlike the narrating self that controls us today, Google will not make decisions on the basis of cooked-up stories, and will not be misled by cognitive short cut...

    This book is sure to give one a lot to think about. Firstly, I?d highly recommend reading Harari?s seminal Sapiens book before delving into Homo Deus. They are meant to complement each other in order to better understand humanity?s past and future. Much of Homo Deus repeats th...

    This book reads like the author read a number of popular science articles, watched some sci-fi movies, attended a transhumanist meetup, got just a bit high on weed and then started writing. ...

    Certainly a disappointment when compared to Sapiens. The insights were generally already well presented in the earlier book. The section on animal lives is not convincingly warranted for inclusion but more obviously just a passion for the author leading me to feel I was being preached ...

    I?ve only read one other book written by Yuval Noah Harari and that was Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, this follows in the steps of that to the point that it seems more like a sequel even if they can be read in whatever order you wish. Just as Sapiens, Homo Deus is a gripping...

    Shocking. Entertaining. Incredibly thoughtful. Freaking fantastic! One of the most informative books I have ever read. I think Homo Deus poses some excellent questions that make you question your existence. Why do we think of ourselves as superior to all other life forms. Why do we ...

    Homo Obsoletus The audacious first act, Sapiens, ended with a wild and apocalyptic prophesy - that the Sapiens were cooking up the next epochal revolution that will overshadow the previous three: the cognitive, agricultural and scientific/industrial revolutions. Home Deus, the secon...

    This is a powerful book by a truly insightful author. I recently read Harari's previous great book, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, and I enjoyed this one just as much. There is so much packed into Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, that it is hard to do justice to the book...

    Obviously I need to get a copy of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind because I loved this book. I can't claim to be well-read in the topic of Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, so I'm definitely biased in my opinion that Harari is a genius. Every few pages my copy has lengthy p...

    Harari is a fantastic historian: he writes effortlessly and fascinatingly about historic trends, and has a great big picture perspective of the revolutions and contexts of historical progression. Harari, however, is not a good futurologist and an absolutely terrible cognitive scient...

    This book reads like the author read a number of popular science articles, watched some sci-fi movies, attended a transhumanist meetup, got just a bit high on weed and then started writing. ...

    Certainly a disappointment when compared to Sapiens. The insights were generally already well presented in the earlier book. The section on animal lives is not convincingly warranted for inclusion but more obviously just a passion for the author leading me to feel I was being preached ...

    I?ve only read one other book written by Yuval Noah Harari and that was Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, this follows in the steps of that to the point that it seems more like a sequel even if they can be read in whatever order you wish. Just as Sapiens, Homo Deus is a gripping...

    Shocking. Entertaining. Incredibly thoughtful. Freaking fantastic! One of the most informative books I have ever read. I think Homo Deus poses some excellent questions that make you question your existence. Why do we think of ourselves as superior to all other life forms. Why do we ...

    4.5 stars actually, this book give us a comprehensive look into the near and distant future . Homo sapiens (modern humans) were able to gain dominance over all of nature because of their ability to communicate and to collaborate with each other and because they could use their collecti...

    The book is hugely disappointing. A year or so ago I read an interview with Harari on this book, which was still work in progress, and I found his views on biological inequality (and, to a lesser extent, the decoupling of intelligence from consciousness) very insightful. Actually, it w...

    Sapiens was one of my favorite nonfiction books I've read in the past few years - so I was excited for the sequel. Overall, its very worth it and full of a lot of the interesting high level perspectives and frameworks. But it also lacks the clear structure of a coherent narrative, isn'...

    A great and ausual book. When considering many more books about the same topic, "how we are going to be", Harari's arguments are more than satisfying and his reasonings are both terrifying and educated. I believe his warnings were the most accurate, I could have found on the topic ...

    Now that the Human kind, in the 20th century, has managed to control famine, plague and war, it is ready for it's next challenge. According to Yuval Noah Harari, the main reason that humans have managed to attain such a strong position in this planet is their ability to believe in ...

    "Looking back, many think that the downfall of the pharaohs and the death of God were both positive developments. People are usually afraid of change because they fear the unknown. But the single greatest constant of history is that everything changes." Knowing where we are is a pre...

    Awesome. This book, as the previous one by this author, goes directly to the shelf of my favourites. Some quotes. "Unlike the narrating self that controls us today, Google will not make decisions on the basis of cooked-up stories, and will not be misled by cognitive short cut...

    This book is sure to give one a lot to think about. Firstly, I?d highly recommend reading Harari?s seminal Sapiens book before delving into Homo Deus. They are meant to complement each other in order to better understand humanity?s past and future. Much of Homo Deus repeats th...

    Anyone working to write science fiction should read Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari. Anyone working to organize a political movement should read Homo Deus. Anyone who seeks self-actualization should read Homo Deus. Anyone who wants to understand why we?re moving into a post-liberal, p...

    The title is misleading. What this book did was to speculate about the future of horse carriages while disregarding the possibility of a car. In that respect, Harari did a pretty good job. But as far as the future goes, outside science fictions, speculating is pretty pointless. Eve...

    First book I purchased with my own salary O:) In the beginning, there's no Introduction or Preface but a chapter titled "The New Human Agenda". I was getting worried while reading this chapter. Totally a disappointment because most contents have already appeared earlier in the last ...

    Excellent, scary and stimulating look at our species and history - and our future. This should appeal to anyone who writes or reads as Hararis thesis rests on the fact that we - homo sapiens - need to believe in things, be it money, flags, countries, companies, stories or even ourselve...

    In his second book Y.N.Harari starts making extrapolations from todays data and inventions. In this book the writer gets more philosophical and wants the reader to question themselves regarding their future. Do they want more freedom but less control over their lives or vice versa. In ...
