This is the 3rd compelling book from the bestselling historian. Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus looked to the future. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century explores the present. How can we protect ourselves from nuclear war, ecological breakdown and technological disruptions? What can we do about the epidemic of fake news or the threat of terrorism? Harari takes us on a thrilling journey through today’s most urgent issues. The thread running through is the challenge of maintaining our collective and individual focus in the face of constant and disorienting change. Are we still capable of understanding the world we have created?
