In Sapiens, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical - and sometimes devastating - breakthroughs of the cognitive, agricultural, and scientific revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, paleontology, and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities.

Listen, relax, and approach with soft objectivism: The art of not forgoing your views, but not holding them out as a shield to the discussion at hand.

You'll notice most reviews which are 3 stars or lower are from people that wish they could have argued a point they disagreed with. I do not believe any point to be hollow, or narrow. The author's tone leaves the ultimate conclusion up to you. This book changed my life in 2016 and this is my 3rd go around with it.
