Yuval Noah Harari’s 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is a probing and visionary investigation into today’s most urgent issues as we move into the uncharted territory of the future. As technology advances faster than our understanding of it, hacking becomes a tactic of war, and the world feels more polarized than ever, Harari addresses the challenge of navigating life in the face of constant and disorienting change and raises the important questions we need to ask ourselves in order to survive.

I'm not sure where the 21 lessons are. I'm several chapters in, and the book is really about AI and jobs for the most part. The author seems to speak to the same ideas over and over again coming back to artificial intelligence, big data and biotech.

This book is great as a print book. I hoped the audiobook would help me get through it (time available while driving), but this does not work as an audiobook.

I'm not generally a fan of these sorts of books. I chose this book only because I really dig what Onnit is doing. Onve I got started, I could not stop listening to this book! I would have moments where I was convinced Aubrey Marcus had written this book for me. Lots of useful ideas and tips and a really refreshing take on living life to the fullest. Not your typical self help crap! I'll listen to it again, for sure.
