Product description

Review

I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who’s interested in the history and future of our species, Bill Gates

Interesting and provocative… It gives you a sense of how briefly we’ve been on this Earth, Barack Obama

Jaw-dropping from the first word to the last… It may be the best book I’ve ever read, Chris Evans

Tackles the biggest questions of history and the modern world… Written in unforgettably vivid language, Jared Diamond

Startling... It changes the way you look at the world, Simon Mayo

Sapiens is a starburst of a book, as enjoyable as it is stimulating, Sunday Express

One of the best books I’ve read recently… Gives an excellent overview of how our species has developed, Lily Cole

Sweeps the cobwebs out of your brain… Radiates power and clarity, making the world strange and new, Sunday Times

Book Description

What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens? This bestselling history of our species challenges everything we know about being human.
