  • This is a profoundly shocking piece of writing, a tactic which Yuval Noah Harari uses to great effect in getting readers to think about society today The book is ostensibly about the future of mankind, but really is a means of highlighting how current trends in science, technology, humanity etc may progress and asks if that s really how we want things to go It s philosophy That big question that has been posed throughout the ages how should we live He makes clear that his hypotheses are only pot [...]


  • Every day millions of people decide to grant their smartphone a bit control over their lives or try a new and effective antidepressant drug In pursuit of health, happiness and power, humans will gradually change first one of their features and then another, and another, until they will no longer be human Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus A Brief History of TomorrowHarari takes us, with this continuation to his blockbuster book Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind, from the past to the future This b [...]


  • Homo ObsoletusThe audacious first act, Sapiens, ended with a wild and apocalyptic prophesy that the Sapiens were cooking up the next epochal revolution that will overshadow the previous three the cognitive, agricultural and scientific industrial revolutions Home Deus, the second act, is the full exploration of that prophesy Both Sapiens and Homo Deus are compulsory reading in my book, even though the macro history presented is plenty vulnerable to all sorts of attacks But then, it might be bette [...]


  • This is a powerful book by a truly insightful author I recently read Harari s previous great book, Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind, and I enjoyed this one just as much There is so much packed into Homo Deus A Brief History of Tomorrow, that it is hard to do justice to the book in a review Yuval Harari has such a unique insight into how the world turns He is sometimes very blunt, but he tells it like he sees it The first two thirds of the book is devoted to a description of how the humanist [...]


  • Obviously I need to get a copy of Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind because I loved this book I can t claim to be well read in the topic of Homo Deus A Brief History of Tomorrow, so I m definitely biased in my opinion that Harari is a genius Every few pages my copy has lengthy passages highlighted, brilliant bits I just knew I would want to reference when I pitched this book to family and friends later on In Homo Deus, Harari holds that now that humanity has all but solved the mammoth problem [...]

  • We are not so taken aback when we hear computer programs can beat human chess masters After all, computers are far efficient calculators than humans, and chess can be broken down to calculations In fact, nowadays chess masters don t stand a chance against present day computer Chessmaster programs It s simply not possible for a human mind to beat them And we re also not at all shocked when Google and Tesla present us automated cars driven by computer programs Nevertheless, we reason,computers ca [...]


  • Harari is a fantastic historian he writes effortlessly and fascinatingly about historic trends, and has a great big picture perspective of the revolutions and contexts of historical progression.Harari, however, is not a good futurologist and an absolutely terrible cognitive scientist Being educated in Cognitive Science and technology myself, all I can say, with the utmost respect I can offer to a fellow Israeli, is that he s full of shit.Homo Deus is an attempt to make a sequel to the wildly pop [...]


  • This book reads like the author read a number of popular science articles, watched some sci fi movies, attended a transhumanist meetup, got just a bit high on weed and then started writing.


  • Certainly a disappointment when compared to Sapiens The insights were generally already well presented in the earlier book The section on animal lives is not convincingly warranted for inclusion but obviously just a passion for the author leading me to feel I was being preached too His criticism of Dawkins et al although correct could be equally pointed at himself The universe will move from hot to cold regardless of quantum mechanical randomness at the quanta scale and equally at our barely gr [...]


  • I ve only read one other book written by Yuval Noah Harari and that was Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind, this follows in the steps of that to the point that it seems like a sequel even if they can be read in whatever order you wish Just as Sapiens, Homo Deus is a gripping book, I love Yuval s writing style because it never bores me, he always manages to draw my full attention Homo Deus is a book that wants to present the possible roads that the future might lead us to It s not a presentati [...]


  • The book is hugely disappointing A year or so ago I read an interview with Harari on this book, which was still work in progress, and I found his views on biological inequality and, to a lesser extent, the decoupling of intelligence from consciousness very insightful Actually, it was that interview that inspired me to read Sapiens, which, despite certain flaws, unfortunately amplified in Deus, is a book definitely worth reading Meanwhile, Deus is wordy, chaotic and repetitive most of the book is [...]


  • Shocking Entertaining Incredibly thoughtful Freaking fantastic One of the most informative books I have ever read I think Homo Deus poses some excellent questions that make you question your existence Why do we think of ourselves as superior to all other life forms Why do we have such strong faith in imaginary things such as money, gods, human rights, companiesAnd what will become of us if dataism succeeds All in all, it s clear that we can t keep living like this Harari s writing style is very [...]


  • 4.5 stars actually, this book give us a comprehensive look into the near and distant future Homo sapiens modern humans were able to gain dominance over all of nature because of their ability to communicate and to collaborate with each other and because they could use their collective brain to come up with novel ideas, but as technology progresses and we rely and in computers and algorithms these computers programs are based on , are we as a species giving up dominance to technology Are we beco [...]


  • Sapiens was one of my favorite nonfiction books I ve read in the past few years so I was excited for the sequel Overall, its very worth it and full of a lot of the interesting high level perspectives and frameworks But it also lacks the clear structure of a coherent narrative, isn t presenting to me quite as novel information, and also does some strange things like using the word liberal in contexts that I don t think definitionally make sense.I like the train of the thought that Harari closed S [...]


  • A great and ausual book When considering many books about the same topic, how we are going to be , Harari s arguments are than satisfying and his reasonings are both terrifying and educated I believe his warnings were the most accurate, I could have found on the topic of technologies and how they may be a danger to us So there are so many people, like Hawkins that try to warn us about future AI uprising, which any sci fi author from 90 s could counter argue effectively and easily However, Hara [...]


  • Now that the Human kind, in the 20th century, has managed to control famine, plague and war, it is ready for it s next challenge According to Yuval Noah Harari, the main reason that humans have managed to attain such a strong position in this planet is their ability to believe in imaginary orders such as countries, religion, money etc.Many believe that we have something in us that could be called a soul or consciousness or similar but it is not clear that this exists and our behavior could possi [...]


  • Looking back, many think that the downfall of the pharaohs and the death of God were both positive developments People are usually afraid of change because they fear the unknown But the single greatest constant of history is that everything changes Knowing where we are is a prerequisite for having any idea of where we are going Common fantasies is what put humans on top Not only can we communicate, but we can also comminuticate about thing that exist only in our common imagination, such as corpo [...]


  • This book is sure to give one a lot to think about.Firstly, I d highly recommend reading Harari s seminal Sapiens book before delving into Homo Deus They are meant to complement each other in order to better understand humanity s past and future Much of Homo Deus repeats the previous themes, which is a bit of a flaw, and frames human historical patterns into broad categories which can seem rushed if one didn t read Sapiens already Still, the concepts are so important and take much energy to trul [...]


  • Awesome This book, as the previous one by this author, goes directly to the shelf of my favourites Some quotes Unlike the narrating self that controls us today, Google will not make decisions on the basis of cooked up stories, and will not be misled by cognitive short cuts and the peak end rule Google will actually remember every step we took and every hand we shook In exchange for such devoted counselling services, we will just have to give up the idea that humans are individuals, and that each [...]

  • What a compelling, engaging, thought provoking, and ultimately quite terrifying book this is I found it unputdownable there s just so much food for thought in its pages and I often find myself thinking back to it when I hear of advances in science and technology with which the author s vision of the future begins to seem ever plausible He describes how human nature, indeed our very humanity, could be transformed in the not very distant future due to developments in bio technology, bio engineeri [...]

  • Having read Sapiens, I had some idea that there would be new themes which Yuval Noah Harari would cover which nobody else has before With Sapiens, it was about the agricultural revolution and the binding power of stories And yes there are brilliant new themes in Homo Deus as well our delusion of free will and the Sapiens in a future world ruled by algorithms, and it continues excellently from where Sapiens left off If Sapiens was about how the most powerful species consolidated it s power, Homo [...]


  • Anyone working to write science fiction should read Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari Anyone working to organize a political movement should read Homo Deus Anyone who seeks self actualization should read Homo Deus Anyone who wants to understand why we re moving into a post liberal, post humanistic society should read Homo Deus Anyone who fears automation should read Homo Deus Anyone who wants to understand why the Republicans control the government should read Homo Deus In fact, anyone who wants to [...]


  • The title is misleading.What this book did was to speculate about the future of horse carriages while disregarding the possibility of a car In that respect, Harari did a pretty good job.But as far as the future goes, outside science fictions, speculating is pretty pointless Even the best of the carriages becomes obsolete once a car comes along.What will happen if P is proven to be equal to NP What if interstellar flights becomes a reality Absurd In 1940s there was no computer, just seventy years [...]


  • First book I purchased with my own salary O In the beginning, there s no Introduction or Preface but a chapter titled The New Human Agenda I was getting worried while reading this chapter Totally a disappointment because most contents have already appeared earlier in the last chapters of Sapiens So, it felt like Harari is losing his charm and I was worried if he had written such an unnecessary lengthy book just to extend the last chapters of Sapiens But I was wrong, though the first chapter was [...]


  • Excellent, scary and stimulating look at our species and history and our future This should appeal to anyone who writes or reads as Harari s thesis rests on the fact that we homo sapiens need to believe in things, be it money, flags, countries, companies, stories or even ourselves Here, as well as showing how we got to where we are, he shows us how our reliance on technology, algorithms and being told what to do may prove to be our eventual undoing What do we value consciousness or intelligence [...]


  • In his second book Y.N.Harari starts making extrapolations from todays data and inventions In this book the writer gets philosophical and wants the reader to question themselves regarding their future Do they want freedom but less control over their lives or vice versa In an age, where every bit of data about our identities, choices and expectations are out on the table for being used and saved for further analysis constantly by computers and networks he points out to future prospects and dang [...]
