    My 3rd Yuval Harari book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century. His most recent, 2018 and is a most telling read so far.

    Could you advise on this when you've finished---I've been looking at it but there are a ton of conflicting reviews--?
    Thanks so so much in advance....

    Having just finished this I would break it down into three areas of focus; 1. His thesis of origin and the supporting evidence he cites from the data gleaned over the eleven days of observation. 2. An airing of his disappointment with established scientific thought and the monetary imperative of only studying "approved" (an profitable) research. 3. A historical perspective of his family and the formulation of his personal belief system and scientific philosophy.

    An interesting read, accurate science, and foundational reasoning in his theories and conclusion. I enjoyed it. Hope that helps.
