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.

Derek Perkins has a voice I could listen to easily, he was clear, and had good inflection which kept my interest. Yuval Harari took a step by step approach to explaining humans from our very earliest moments and thoughts to the present state of the human life style. I had many different emotions from anger, and sympathy to fear and hope. Humans are obviously complex but I found it interesting that it take a book like this to make obvious, that kindsness, understanding and helping our fellow man and other animals is the best sort of motivation we could aspire to.
Excellent read.

I found that the book was good but without pictures was hard to follow or picture the way the system was suppose to be built. Definitely needs to be in paper form.
