Summary

Historian Yuval Noah Harari's new book is his third in a trilogy that examines the annals of humanity. Divided into five parts and 21 chapters, it discusses the near future, as extrapolated from our current trajectories. Like his other bestsellers, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is meant for a broad audience, and Harari effortlessly jumps between diverse topics, from biology and information science to history, religion, and philosophy.
