Recommendation 5 / 5

I was highly impressed by this book. It describes the story of humankind which was pioneered by Paleolithic proto-humans. Yuval Noah Harari, the author of the book, focusses on the three major revolutions of our history – cognitive, agricultural and scientific. The book describes why we are the chosen ones by explaining the role of domestication of fire which played a gigantic role in our evolution. It explains how we have mastered our surroundings, increased food production, built cities, established and ruined empires and created trade networks. I don’t want to spoil the content ..
