Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it. Us. We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us sapiens? In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going.

I have never been interested in history. Of any kind, or anything. This book was all about history and I waited to be free enough to hear it each day! Yuval Noah Harari is in a league of his own. Goosebumps, worry, sadness, happiness, excitement of learning something new and worthwhile, anger and many more responses and emotions are invoked by this book.

Also, 100% credit for excellent narration too.
