**From the author of the number 1 global bestseller Sapiens** **The Top Ten Sunday Times Bestseller** Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus shows us where we're going. War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict. Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation. Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in. What does our future hold? Yuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling phenomenon Sapiens envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century - from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions- Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? 'Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before' Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow

About the Author

Dr Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. Sapiens- A Brief History of Humankind has become an international phenomenon attracting a legion of fans from Bill Gates and Barack Obama to Chris Evans and Jarvis Cocker, and is published in nearly 40 languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was in the Top Ten for over six months in paperback. His follow-up to Sapiens, Homo Deus- A Brief History of Tomorrow was also a Top Ten Bestseller and was described by the Guardian as 'even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens'.

"Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before." -- Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow "Shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted and accessible manner" * Jarvis Cocker * "Even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens" -- Kazuo Ishiguro * Guardian Books of the Year * "An exhilarating book that takes the reader deep into questions of identity, consciousness and intelligence" * Observer * "A brilliantly original, thought-provoking and important study of where mankind is heading." * Evening Standard * "Spellbinding... a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart" * Guardian * "An intoxicating brew of science, philosophy and futurism." * Mail on Sunday * "Yuval Noah Harari is the most entertaining and thought-provoking writer of non-fiction at the moment. As with Sapiens, you finish the book feeling much wiser" -- Matt Haig
