An early notice for September. Sapiens . . . is a NY Times best seller and an Amazon Best Book of the Month. I took a 17 session course via the Internet by Harari that followed this book, and I found it fascinating. It changed the way I look at the world! I highly recommend this book.
Harari focuses on the three great revolutions of human history: Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific. He asks how “An Animal of No Significance” managed to become the dominant life form, and whether that animal’s learning to produce his own food and then to further harness the natural world to his will through science were boons or setbacks, both for that animal and for the rest of the biosphere.
The library has 27 copies and at least one audiobook. It is as low as $11.98 used at Amazon.
