Book of the month: Sapiens: A brief history of humankind

In Notebook by NarcisLeave a Comment

Every month I am going to review the book that I have been reading. It is a good way to makes me read, to analyse what we are reading, as well as finish the book within a month. This week I am reviewing a great book, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari.

I have really enjoyed this book. It has put in order the concepts and events in humanity. From one hundred thousand years ago, when we share the world with at least six other human species and how we manage to outcast them and become the only survivors on earth, to the current capitalist system which most homo sapiens have implemented in our lives.

This book is full of insights; it’s like a telescope looking the human kind history which helps us to understand why we do things the way we do. After all, we are still following the laws of biology and nature, even if sometimes we think ourselves outside of the animal kingdom.

If you are looking for a pleasant way to learn history, this is definitely the book you should read next.
