Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow

Recommended Price 
April 2017
About the book: 

From the author of the number one bestseller Sapiens .

Sapiens  showed us where we came from. Homo Deus  shows us where we're going. War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict. Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation. Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in.

What does our future hold? Yuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling phenomenon Sapiens  envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges.

Homo Deus  explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? 

'Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before ' - Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow
