Sapiens book cover


Краткая история человечества

Yuval Noah Harari

Сто тысяч лет назад Homo sapiens был одним из как минимум шести видов человека, живших на этой планете, – ничем не примечательным животным, которое играло в экосистеме роль не большую, чем гориллы, светлячки или медузы. Но около семидесяти тысяч лет назад загадочное изменение когнитивных способностей Homo sapiens превратило его в хозяина планеты и кошмар экосистемы. Как человек разумный сумел покорить мир? Что стало с другими видами человека? Когда и почему появились деньги, государства и религия? Как возникали и рушились империи? Почему почти все общества ставили женщин ниже мужчин? Как наука и капитализм стали господствующими вероучениями современной эры? Становились ли люди с течением времени счастливее? Какое будущее нас ожидает? Юваль Харари показывает, как ход истории формировал человеческое общество и действительность вокруг него. Его книга прослеживает связь между событиями прошлого и проблемами современности и заставляет читателя пересмотреть все устоявшиеся представления об окружающем мире.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a fun, engaging look at early human history.      источник
@joy_in_words Book - Sapiens, Movie - Aviator      источник
The brainy book I seem to be sharing or talking about the most lately.      источник
I’ve said it before and I’ll definitely say it in the future, the book Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari is truly mind-blowing. It’s changed the way I look at almost everything. I can’t endorse it enough.      источник
I just love the style of his writing.      источник
American Like Me by @AmericaFerrera & Sapiens -A Brief History of Humankind @harari_yuval      источник
Really enjoying “Sapiens” by yuval_noah_harari It really puts in perspective how bizarre human beings are. It’s an awesome overview of our species.      источник
It’s an amazing book on the beginning of humanity. It’s scientific but also philosophical. It’s written by Yuval Noah Harari. I heard him speak and it’s fascinating. It’s about humanity and how we came to be. It’s a book that I carried around for a while but it’s like 500 pages.      источник
Unbelievably good book. Jaw dropping from the first word to the last. Best £9.99 I've spent in ages.      источник
@IJOSWIL Great book      источник
@Savo_Heleta Just a little quote from Yuval Harari's Sapiens, one of the best books I read this year. Someone should have given it to you for Christmas, if you are prepared to look beyond your Fanon blinkers.      источник
A great book about how we’ve evolved and why we have anxiety.      источник
Understanding how we got to this point is essential in figuring out the path forward. Add #Sapiens to your weekend reading list, it's a gem.      источник
"Sapiens" by Yuval Noah Harari is the best book I've read since "The Rational Optimist" (@mattwridley). Both orthogonal and deep thinkers.      источник
It explains human behavior and why we are the way we are in human civilization from soup to nuts. And I’ve read it now a couple of times. It’s a pretty astonishing book.      источник
A grand theory of humanity.      источник
A previous favorite.      источник
3 books I recommended on Pomp's podcast. These books help you understand how our world works (or doesn’t work). This understanding is essential for success.      источник
People often ask me what to read. Better to LISTEN to a book like @harari_yuval book SAPIENS so you can navigate today’s lunacy. All members of the press should read this book twice. Get out of your echo chambers!      источник
I'm sitting on Miami Beach in the sun reading this excellent book, drinking rosé, listening to cheesy 90s R&B. 2016 has a kiss in its tail      источник
“Sapiens” by Yuval Harari Great book!      источник
I resisted reading this popular history of mankind, because it came out when I had just finished “Guns, Germs, and Steel” and “Cows, Pigs, Wars, and Witches”, on the same subject. But wow - this book is at its best when the author is sharing his personal perspective about binding myths, humanism, and other ways that “truths” are not true. And you get an interesting history of the world along with it. Strange mix of history and philosophy.      источник
Love this book still      источник
13. Sapiens 35 years A delightfully wonderful book. Just as "Brief history of time", Yuval skillfully simplified the journey of our civilization. Making me fall in love with the art of teaching, yet again.      источник
Basically one of the things we've created here is we've imagined ideas that we all share.      источник
@AriDavidPaul Sapiens by Harari. Other books I love that aren't recent reads: Seabiscuit and Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. She is the master when it comes to storytelling. Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick, written in the 90s but timely Random Family by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc      источник
I am almost halfway through my second reading of this thought provoking book. Interesting how much l had not taken in the first time l read the book.      источник
@dcurtis Sapiens is the best book of the last decade. Upside of Stress will change your life.      источник
@chronic_trader I tried but I cant do ten and there isn't enough room for a full list so books Ive recently enjoyed are: Sapiens Homo Deus The Silk Road The Lean Start Up Trust me Im lying Conspiracy Chaos Monkeys David Bowie - A life Why Minksy Matters The Sheltering Sky The Undoing Project      источник
Really great book      источник
One of the most talked about books of the last couple of years, and for good reason. Both sobering and conservatively optimistic in equal measure, it seems even more relevant for us at the moment to learn from our socio-anthropological history.      источник
Q: Are there any books you haven’t mentioned that you feel would make your reading list? P.A.: I would also include the following books: The Emperor of All Maladies, Where Men Win Glory, The President’s Club, The Most Important Thing, Sapiens, The Hard Thing About Hard Things, 10 Percent Happier, The Rommel Papers, King of the World, The Corner and Good Calories, Bad Calories.      источник
Some books should be read twice (or more). This is one of them. On my second reading now.      источник
I read 95 books in 2016. Best non-fiction: Sapiens, Saving Capitalism, The New Jim Crow, The Social Animal, Story (by McKee).      источник
I couldn’t put Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari down. I found Harari’s writing to be engaging yet academic and authoritative—that’s not easy to do. It inspired me to see if my writing could have a similar impact.      источник
Have you read the book, Sapiens, by Yuval Noah Harari? Great read. Here's his @TEDTalks on the topic. Mind=blown:      источник
Day 3: I’ve been nominated by @filadin to post covers of 7 books that I love with no explanations or reviews. Each time I post I will ask another to take up the challenge. Today I nominate @bluebirds4418      источник
@ThuesenMartin I love this book. I've read it as a book and listened on audio. I need to read it several more times to take it all in!      источник
Wonderful book! Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari Francis Bacon said history can make us wise. Here is a history of the whole human race!      источник
I cannot recommend Yuval Harari's book, Sapiens, enough. Here's my favourite bit about the need for stories.      источник
I’m going to give Sapiens over and over again to everyone I know.      источник
@Trader_Calm Yeah, of the few books that you can feel yourself getting smarter as you read them :) I would put Taleb's Incerto series also in these category of books.      источник
@JJFilson Great book and agree. But can wealth just be created by desire? It may not be a zero sum game but aren’t there some constraints? If we keep creating more and more wealth mechanisms, can we just buy more things with no downside?      источник
One of the books I’ve given most as a gift.      источник
