Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari

Sapiens is a scientific exploration of what traits led to the dominance of Homo sapiens, how we have evolved to evade the laws of natural selection, and how we now design the world around us. Sapiens is a book that explores what it means to be “human,” by investigating the past, observing the present, and looking to the future. Staying at the “big history” level, the book contains many thought-provoking ideas.
