21 Lessons for the 21st Century Reviews
litt mindre sammenhengende enn de forrige to og av og til en repetisjon av dem, men solid ''i det hele tatt,,
We learned about the past from Sapiens. We learned about the future from Homo Deus. And in 21 Lessons for the 21 Century we embrace the NOW.
It's hard to form words to describe my excitement and adoration for this book. As previous books, it certainly doesn't let you down. 21 lessons cover many interesting topics on truth and how we are post-truth species and how some fake news only lasted for 700 years... How people really don't understand AI and what we could end up with. Not in war against the ...more
I've listened to both Sapiens and Homo Deus and this book follows in the veins of the previous two.
Whereas Sapiens attempts a brief history of humankind and Homo Deus looks at the future, 21 Lessons comes smack in the middle and delves into several potential problems for humanity: nuclear war, climate change and technological innovation.
As his previous works, this book will make you sad, laugh out loud - especially the bit about the altruistic algorithm for self driving cars - but most of all it ...more

I am becoming quite an evangelist for this book. I am keen to discuss it with everyone I know and, when it is published in a couple of months, I’ll be making sure they all read it. Perceptive and witty, seriously well researched, I was mesmerised by Harari’s take on the world as it is now and how it could be in the near future. He is the first to admit he doesn’t have all the answers to solve modern dilemmas but he is a whiz at distilling current thinking on our personal and global problems into ...more
As always, masterful and exquisite non-fiction writing as we come to expect from Mr Harari. Delightful, wise and very perceptive. This book can be seen as an expansion and a companion to Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow. The attention of this volume is focused on the Present as opposed to Past or the Future. Some parts will make you feel inspired, others will sow a despair. But it is a relevant and useful book that will give you a plenty to chew on.
It's Life as we know it, Jim! (But don't ask what it means).
'A wise old man was asked what he learned about the meaning of life. ‘Well,’ he answered, ‘I have learned that I am here on earth in order to help other people. What I still haven’t figured out is why the other people are here.’
As Harari explains:
“We are now living in an age of information explosion … the last thing people need is more information. What they really need is somebody to arrange all of the bits of information into a meani ...more
Another hit for yuval noah harari, “21 lessons” is a perfect follow-up to “sapiens” and “homo deus”. While the previous two focused more on the history and future of mankind, this one reveals the author’s insights on the individual - motivation, awareness, intelligence, and how we are influenced by education, religion, and experience. As an atheist and secularist, i found much to inspire and focus my thoughts and energy, rendered with originality, compassion, and clarity. I will continue to reco ...more
