Longtime readers of Value Investing Almanack know that I am a huge fan of Yuval Harari’s work. His first book, Sapiens, turned my world upside down. Technically, it was a book on human history but the insights were anything but ancient. It was jaw dropping from the first word to the last. Sapiens ranks among the five best books that I have read, ever!
His second book Homo Deus was equally gripping and lived up to the expectations created by his first masterpiece Sapiens. In Sapiens, Harari explained how homo sapiens came to be the planet’s dominant species. Homo Deus was a historian’s perspective of what the future could look like for humans.
The first and the second book covering the past and the future respectively, Harari’s reader were waiting to hear his views on the present state of the world. Fortunately, the wait wasn’t long. In his latest book — 21 Lessons for the 21st Century — Harari confronts today’s 21 big questions dedicating one chapter to each of those questions.
