Past & Future of Humans !!

Sapiens & Homo Deus – By Yuval Noah Harari.

These Two Books,Had been  on my mind since the beginning of 2017 .And Just when the 1st Quarter of 2018 comes to an End. I did finish my Journey of a The Brief History of HumanKind and A Brief History of tomorrow.It was A wonderful tedious read. Yuval Harari Tells us some  things  that we might already be aware about and  tell us  things which we might be completely unaware of, Since our Media personalities must have never spoken about these issues.

Facts such as the Chinese exchanging rice production with weapons that resulted in one of the most deadliest famine in the history in 1958.

6 Million people in France suffer from nutritional security.that means these   people  do not have asses to the  nutrional food, in order to be able to live a healthy and active life.

Sapiens is a Book that gets you thinking about so much,Even after you are done reading there are so many questions you still want to know about, even though you know a lot more about Humankind after reading the  book then  you would have known.

Phara phrasing some quotes from “Sapiens”

Our language evolved as a way of gossiping.”

― Yuval Noah HarariSapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

This is the essence of the Agricultural Revolution: the ability to keep more people alive under worse conditions.” 

― Yuval Noah HarariSapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

Evolution has made Homo sapiens, like other social mammals, a xenophobic creature. Sapiens instinctively divide humanity into two parts, ‘we’ and ‘they’.” 

― Yuval Noah HarariSapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

I also truly believe,Every season has a trend of similar books now being published. Ever since these two books have become a global phenomenon.You are now getting more books on similar lines being published.Making it difficult to choose which books to read next.

The Third book  coming from Yuval ’21 lessons from 21st Century’ this August 2018. A book on Issues that need to be tackled

Fake News,Terrorism and  from resilience and humility to meditation.

Yuval Noah Harari is a author worth reading.
