Publisher's Summary

Yuval Noah Harari, author of the best-selling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. Now, in Homo Deus, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy and every discipline in between.

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. War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict. Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation. Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in. What does our future hold?

    "A modern day second testament"

    It's not often the sequel is better than the original, but in this case it is true. Sapiens was my favourite book until this terrific sequel came along. It reads like a modern day religious text, using logic and a spellbinding account of modern science to outline how we got to where we are, and a outlines a somewhat scary manifesto for our future. Beware Dataism!

    Utterly entertaining and undoubtedly brilliant.

    "Confrontational and engaging"

    Entirely thought provoking and fascinating discussion on some of the potential hazards on the human horison and whatay come from them. The book does not aim to predict the future, but follows several macro trends over the human existence to potential conclusions and discuss certain challenges associated with them.
    The book may be very confrontational to religious people. However, it spares no-one as Harari broadens the definition of religion to include all ideologies and systemically breaks them down into their reason d'être and temporal nature. Whether you are a Christian, Hindu or Fundamentalist Liberal, he will challenge your world view.

    Story
    "Both books are outstanding"
    If you could sum up Homo Deus in three words, what would they be?

    Engaging, detailed, thought-provoking


    What did you like best about this story?

    It has a consistent engaging narrative. I couldn't put it down.


    Have you listened to any of Derek Perkins’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Great clear voice, easy to listen to.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me think about humanity and mortality. It shakes you out of the everyday humdrum.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love human history, sociology and futurology, you will love these books.

    "Disappointing follow up to "Sapiens""
    Would you try another book from Yuval Noah Harari and/or Derek Perkins?

    Yes


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Don't think I got that far.


    What three words best describe Derek Perkins’s voice?

    Over 2 very long books it was still pleasant to hear him.


    Could you see Homo Deus being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No idea


    Any additional comments?

    "Sapiens" was remarkable and a difficult book to follow.

    "You get one thing out of this: insight"

    Very much the continuation of his other book the Sapiens, Harrari takes you from the realm of what was to what could be. Even though it's filled with facts and descriptions of scientific experiments, the main frame is very much a story. With a captivating language the author takes you to think about very fundamental issues while being utterly entertained. This is a story worth your time in this age of rapid changes and mindless trends.

    I read and listen to audible at the same time. I realised that the narration of the book is incomplete. The narrator tend to skip a few paragraphs. Due to this reason, i have to constantly pause the audiobook in order to read the paragraph myself.

    The great tale of how humans turned into humanists and then dataists. It's a story of epic changes in the way we are co-evolving with our own intelligent creations and our interconnected world, and questions where that data centricism and super intelligence will lead us. Must read!

    One of the best books I've read/listened to. Story and narration was first class.

    I purchased this book not knowing too much about it and then was blown away by the journey it took me on.

    Do yourself a favour and take a listen.

    Story
    "Full of "wow, I never thought of it like that!""
    Where does Homo Deus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A really great follow-up to Sapiens. It didn't go in the direction I expected, but Harari, as ever, gives you lots and lots of food for thought!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author manages to point out parallels in history that seem totally obvious once you hear them, but you'd never have thought of yourself. Then he extrapolates forward in a logical way to reach some very interesting, and sometimes challenging, predictions.


    What does Derek Perkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Personally I find this kind of non-fiction fascinating, but sometimes difficult to engage with when I'm not fresh. But by listening to it, so much of the hard work of bringing meaning out from the words is done by the narrator, so you can literally just sit back and listen.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    For me, this was one to take in in sections. The chapters are arranged logically and sensibly, and I like to absorb and reflect on one before I move on to the next
