Homo Deus A Brief History of Tomorrow Synopsis

Yuval. Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus. War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict. Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation. Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in. What does our future hold?

Homo Deus A Brief History of Tomorrow Press Reviews

'Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before.' -- Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow

'Spellbinding... This is a very intelligent book, full of sharp insights and mordant wit... It is a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart... It is hard to imagine anyone could read this book without getting an occasional, vertiginous thrill.' -- David Runciman Guardian

'What elevates Harari above many chroniclers of our age is his exceptional clarity and focus.' -- Josh Glancy Sunday Times

'A remarkable book, full of insights and thoughtful reinterpretations of what we thought we knew about ourselves and our history... One measure of Harari's achievement is that one has to look a long way back - to 1934, in fact, the year when Lewis Mumford's Technics and Civilization was published - for a book with comparable ambition and scope.' -- John Naughton Guardian
