Publisher's Summary

This is a summary of Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens: A Brief History of Mankind

The groundbreaking book, written by a well-known historian, reveals how human beings were created and evolved. It also takes a deep look into the history and biology that have come to define us while enhancing what we understand by "humanity." How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights, to trust money books and laws, and to be enslaved by bureaucracy timetables and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come?

This summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to listen to the whole thing. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer.

Ant Hive Media reads every chapter, extracts the understanding and leaves you with a new perspective and time to spare. We do the work so you can understand the book in minutes, not hours.

The reader makes it impossibly distracting

What would have made Summary of Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens: A Brief History of Mankind better?

Love Ant Hive Media and love their summaries. However they need to improve the readings of their summaries. I will be returning this one and may reconsider using them in the future unless they find a consistently better speaker.

What didn’t you like about Brian Ackley’s performance?

Very choppy and harsh. No smoothness.

Complete waste of time and money

Most of this pathetic recording is the legal disclaimers and the rest is not worth listening to. Get the real book and avoid this summary publisher
