Congratulations Craig on another well thought out adventure for the merry band of pirates. Excellent and entertaining narration as always from RC Bray. You guys are a great team. Keep it up.

Still very fresh even 18 years after publishing.

The theme may become increasingly relevant to all of us as genetic science develops over the next decades. Kudos for the author who has managed to write in such a way that the technological advances in the years since writing do not adversely affect the storyline.

Kudos to the author to take on the challenge of creating such a detailed story line. The engineering oriented plot is engaging for people who have had similar experience in the real world of projects. Unfortunately the narrator is not my cup of tea and the attempts at foreign accents tend to distract from the content.

Very entertaining

Yuval creatively entertains as he weaves together the collective wisdom and development of more than 10,000 years of human history. On the whole Sapiens is engaging and is a secular and scientifically based account of our collective history.

good story twists, but repetitive
