Review: Harari’s 21 Lessons for the 21st Century

21 Lessons for the 21st Century
Yuval Noah Harari

The third in Harari’s trilogy of books and by far his most accessible. If you know Harari through youtube videos and magazine articles, a lot of this will be familiar. Brilliant insights here into how A.I. will change work, how the stories will tell ourselves today may seem barbaric to our grandchildren, and the importance of clarity and insight in leading a fulfilling life. Perhaps not as mind-bendingly brilliant as Sapiens, or as forward thinking as Homo Deus, but still well worth the time and maybe even the best place to start. If 21 Lessons intrigues you, you’ll love his other works.
