Publisher's Summary

Important note: This is a book summary of 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari and not the original book.

What are the biggest problems facing us in the 21st century? How does the future of A.I change the meaning of being human? How should we prepare our children for what lies ahead?

Yuval Noah Harari answers these questions and so much more. With technology advancing faster than we are able to fully understand it and the world seeming to be more split than ever, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century explores the most urgent issues of the day as we move into an uncertain future. Harari addresses the challenge of navigating life, ensuring we are better prepared for what is to come.  

Throughout 21 profound and very relevant chapters, Harari explores a wide range of topics. Social, political, technological, and existential issues are all covered as are solutions on how we can best prepare for a future that is very different from the current world we live in. Presenting complex contemporary challenges clearly and accessibly, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is essential listening.

(Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book. If you’re looking for the original book, it is available from Amazon and Audible.) 

It takes the average person 93 minutes to read 13000 words.

For the price of a coffee and a time investment of roughly 5 percent of your day, I believe the wisdom in this book to be well worth its value. This book allows you to skip to the nuggets of wisdom and actionable content in a very easily absorbed, digestible way, including key takeaways at the end of each chapter. This book summarizes the original in detail, to help people effectively understand, articulate, and imbibe the original work by Harari. This audiobook is not meant to replace the original book but to serve as a companion to it.

Obvious ramblings

The summaries *really* don't work in audio book format! - copy pasted sentences from before in the chapter... made me feel like my connection was bonkers and it jumped back or something.

Occasional use of awkward language like "more superior". Not bad ideas, so maybe suited for someone who is new to the idea of thinking about the future but to anyone who has read other books (homo deus etc) this feels like a worse that.

Just realized this was a review of the other book... it did sound a lot like a co student telling you about the book you were supposed to read... that explains a lot - updated ratingrating plus one star. will read the real thing at some point perhaps.

The leader of new religion

After listening to this short version of Harari’s book, and after reading Sapiens and Homo Deus, I can only wish that people listen more to his ideas and approach to the challenges we are facing today. One of my favourite authors for the last few years. The reading didn’t match my expectations.

An eye-opener book.

An eye-opener book. It covers a lot of well known social issues, but gives you another innovative point of view on each and every one of it. Force you to a deeper thinking.
