Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it. Us. We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us sapiens? In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going.

Every leader, young or old, resonates with the dead-end feeling of not being in charge. Too often the lack of authority paralyzes leaders, leaving them believing they must wait to be in charge until they can lead. One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. Great leaders don't buy it. Great leaders lead with or without the authority to lead.

beginning reading this book I found the concepts explained were absolutely great. the content however was explained in a catholic key that tries to convince you to read the bible and the old testament, in all honesty as an atheist i havnt appreciated this as it wasnt mentioned in the title which becomes misleading compared to the actual content.

Have you ever been lied to? Of course you have, whether you knew it or not. Ever caught a spouse, business partner, parent, boss, or child brazenly lying right to your face? What if you could tell someone was lying, just by listening to them, and observing their action and behavior? Here's the first audiobook that gives you the tools to figure out what's really going on.

Great book that covers many fundamental aspects of starting a business that an entrepreneur should consider. However everything is covered very briefly, for somebody it would be great to get deeper in certain matters to have more time to think and consider about them.
