21 Lessons for the 21st Century

by Yuval Noah Harari Author

Swept up in the nonstop news cycle of today, it's hard to step back and take the long view on history and current events. Fortunately for us, that's Yuval Noah Harari's specialty. The author of Sapiens treats us here to a look at what is happening in the world right now, through the lens of history. In an era of fake news, many of us feel ungrounded—Harari puts the idea of truth into perspective. The lessons in this sweeping book are not prescriptive so much as grounding, teaching you not what you are looking at, but how to look. Big and dense, but relatively easy to read.
