Yuval Noah Harari

It is an iron rule of history that what looks inevitable in hindsight was far from obvious at the time." Harari's hindsight in Sapiens is a wide 70,000-year canvas, a grand-scheme history of homo sapiens and a work of sometimes jaw-dropping surprises. How exciting that Harari has reinterpreted this unconventional, provoking and thoughtful book into graphic narrative form. The beauty of the illustrations and the distillation of the arching story to a frame-by-frame, cinematic telling will surely capture new readers and captivate those already familiar.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

 

A hardcover edition of the first volume of the graphic adaptation of Yuval Noah Harari's smash #1 New York Times and international bestseller recommended by President Barack Obama and Bill Gates, with gorgeous full-color illustrations and concise, easy to comprehend text for readers of all ages.

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?

In this first volume of the full-color illustrated adaptation of his groundbreaking book, renowned historian Yuval Harari tells the story of humankind’s creation and evolution, exploring the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.” From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens challenges us to reconsider accepted beliefs, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and view specific events within the context of larger ideas.
