Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless other have conquered it: us.
What makes us brilliant?
What makes us deadly?
What makes us sapiens?
In this bold and provocative book, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going. Sapiens is the thrilling account of our history -- from insignificant apes to rulers of the world.
