Homo deus - Yuval Noah Harari

A good thing about the current pandemic is that I’ve had plenty of time to read. I'm currently updating a list of the best books I’ve come across so far. Please see my home page for the previous entries.
Yuval Noah Harari strikes back. If his "Sapiens" (introduced here along with Jared Diamond's "The third chimpanzee") answers the "Where do we come from?" question, "Homo Deus" addresses the "Where are we going?" one.It's an excellent blend of anthropological, economics, social, psychological, scientific and technological topics.
One of the most daring, inspiring and insightful volumes you can find on a bookstore shelf. Pick it up and give it a try (don't forget to pay for it first!)
