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.

The voice actor was a wonderful choice to deliver the sometimes dry, yet unexpectedly amusing book. Human history delivered through an introspective lens. At points you think the naration has meandered off point but then the story weaves back around with a pleasant way of leaving you better informed than before.
