Homo Deus

A Brief History of Tomorrow

Yuval Noah Harari

This thought-provoking book delves into the future of humanity and our quest to upgrade humans into gods. Harari explains how, over the past century, humankind has managed to solve famine, plague, and war, making them manageable challenges. Now, as gods of planet earth, what destinies will we set ourselves? From creating artificial life to overcoming death, this book explores the projects, dreams, and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century. Harari maps out our future with the same insight and clarity that made his previous book an international hit.

A thoughtful look at what may be in store for humanity.      source
One of 70 must-read books.      source
After reading the wonderful book ‘Homodeus’, I’ve come to one conclusion... Mankind & Humanity don’t mix. Blame it on ‘The Tyranny of The Unquantifiable’😏 there’s irony in there somewhere I’m sure...      source
@sohilgupta @dirceu Already reading, great book.      source
Badass book      source
Not that I agree with all of it, but it is still mind-bending speculation about our future.      source
Very interesting alternative perspective on life from a historian. Anti-religion, anti-humanism, pro-animal. Seems detached, but is quite opinionated. Much to think about, regardless. My notes here give a taste. A lot to think about.      source
Great (and sobering) book about our future, especially if big tech continues unchecked. “One central project will be to protect humankind & the planet as a whole from the dangers inherent in our own power” @harari_yuval      source

Non-work books I've read that I recommend      source
@Alejandro_R_C As an intro, these ones helped me: - Life 3.0 / Max Tegmark - 21 Lessons for the 21st Century / Yuval Noah Harari - Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow / Yuval Noah Harari      source
“Happiness is driven more by expectations than conditions.” Good reminder from a great book Homo Deus.      source
