Harari, the brilliant author of Sapiens and Homo Deus, has written a third work of nonfiction that is just as interesting and mind expanding as his first two. The twenty-one lessons cover a wide range of relevant subjects today such as, equality, religion, terrorism and justice. For each of these topics, Harari describes how they are important, how they are truthful and how helpful or harmful they are as we move towards 2055 and beyond. Harari’s range of knowledge is almost unbelievable, and his explanations are clear, concise and perfectly explained. I am a fan of Yuval Noah Harari even though his view of mankind and our future is sometimes pessimistic.
Warning: If you are devoutly religious and a fan of Donald Trump, the Israeli government today and Brexit, you may find parts of 21 Lessons for the 21st Century offensive.
