Reviews

"Fascinating... compelling... [Harari] has teed up a crucial global conversation about how to take on the problems of the 21st century." -- Bill Gates * New York Times *
"The great thinker of our age." * The Times *
"Truly mind-expanding... Ultra-topical... Harari's big selling point [is] the ambition and breadth of his work, smashing together unexpected ideas into dazzling observations." * Guardian *
"Erudite, illuminating, vivid. [Harari's] lessons suggest new ways of thinking about current problems... a splendid, sobering, stirring call to arms." * Sunday Times *
"There is surely no one alive who is better at explaining our world than Yuval Noah Harari - he is the lecturer we all wish we'd had at university. Reading this book, I must have interrupted my partner a hundred times to pass on fascinating things I'd just read. Harari has done it again - 21 Lessons is, simply put, a crucial book." -- Adam Kay
"More comprehensible [than Sapiens and Homo Deus]... showing you things you thought you knew about in a completely new way... I find Harari's writing exhilarating." * Radio Times *
"Harari thrills his readers because he addresses the biggest possible topics with confidence and brio. Compared with the subjects he tackles, anything else we might read looks piffling and parochial." * Evening Standard *
"Harari's genius at weaving together insights from different disciplines, ranging from ancient history to neuroscience to philosophy to artificial intelligence, has enabled him to respond to the clamour to understand where we have come from and where we might be heading... 21 Lessons is lit up by flashes of intellectual adventure and literary verve." * Financial Times *
"Written in the author's trademark lucid prose, the book makes difficult concept comprehensible, and is very much a work for our times... 21 Lessons absorbs from start to finish." -- Ian Thomson * Tablet *
"A terrific primer on where we are now and where we might be heading... Harari is a superb global cartographer, and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is a lucid and essential read." -- Marina Vaizey * Arts Desk *
