That's my first review in a pretty long time, but I decided to only review good books - the kind I'm recommending and giving to my friends.
I heard about "Sapiens" a couple of times but I bought the book after learning more about the author and seeing that Cal Newport recommends the book as well. You can read about the author at Yuval Harari Works Less Than You maybe you will get interested the same way I did.
Sapiens starts when humans were hunter-gatherers and brings us to modern times. Most important is his perspective and high level view on agriculture, religions, ideologies and nations. Most striking was how much modern culture we live in is just another kind of ideology and how important it is for people to believe in the same things.
Rating: 10/10. Must read.
I was reading it in english but I liked the books so much that I bought Polish paper edition as well. Polish readers can find shops at: lubimyczytac.pl
