One of our favorite books of 2015 was Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens, a book that tackled evolutionary concepts from a historian’s perspective, ultimately asking the question, Does all this progress make us happier, our lives easier? So we were delighted to learn of his latest book, Homo Deus, which looks in the opposite direction: toward our future. In his review, Amazon editor Chris Schluep wrote:
Homo Deus is the kind of provocative, food-for-thought read that drew so many of us to his work in the first place. According to Harari, our future could be very different from our present - dark, technocratic, and automated - but reading about our possible fates, presented in Harari’s illuminating style, sure is fascinating.
Also impressive: Publishing two 500-page, deep, thought-provoking books in two years.
