The great thinker of our age. * The Times * Truly mind-expanding... Ultra-topical... Harari's big selling point [is] the ambition and breadth of his work, smashing together unexpected ideas into dazzling observations. * Guardian * Erudite, illuminating, vivid. [Harari's] lessons suggest new ways of thinking about current problems... a splendid, sobering, stirring call to arms. * Sunday Times * There is surely no one alive who is better at explaining our world than Yuval Noah Harari - he is the lecturer we all wish we'd had at university. Reading this book, I must have interrupted my partner a hundred times to pass on fascinating things I'd just read. Harari has done it again - 21 Lessons is, simply put, a crucial book. -- Adam Kay More comprehensible [than Sapiens and Homo Deus]... showing you things you thought you knew about in a completely new way... I find Harari's writing exhilarating. * Radio Times *
