In bringing his focus to the here and now, Harari will help us to grapple with a world that is increasingly hard to comprehend, encouraging us to focus our minds on the essential questions we should be asking ourselves today. Employing his trademark entertaining and lucid style, Harari will examine some of the world's most urgent issues, including terrorism, fake news and immigration, as well as turning to more individual concerns, from resilience and humility to meditation.

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 *
