Publisher's Summary

New York Times Best Seller  

A Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg  

From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution - a number one international best seller - that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human”. 

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one - Homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?  

Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.  

Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become?  

This provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential listening for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi.

ओवर आल ठीक है

यद्यपि युवाल नोआ हरारी ने कई सारे रोचक तथ्यों के साथ बहुत सारे नवीन विचार प्रस्तुत किया है। कथन शैली, ऐतिहासिक जानकारी, शब्द चयन आदि बहुत उपयुक्त है। इस पुस्तक ने मुझे बहुत गहरे तक प्रभावित किया। बस एक जगह - जहाँ युवाल ने वर्तमान पूंजीवादी और वैज्ञानिकवाद का महिमामंडन किया है, काफी कुछ पूर्वाग्रह और अपने दौर के महिमामंडन से अधिक कुछ नहीं है। यह बात हर व्यक्ति अपने दौर के बारे में कह सकता है। शायद नियंडरथल भी अपने दौर के बारे में युवाल जैसा ही सोंचते रहेगें या फिर आज के 5000 साल पहले के मनुष्य भी। बाबला कोचर की आवाज और प्रस्तुति शैली! शानदार, अद्भुत, अकल्पनीय और अविस्मरणीय है।

सोचने वे विवश करने वाली

इस पुस्तक को पढ़ के आपके सोचने का नजरिया ही बदल जाएगा। ज्ञान के साथ साथ आपका मनोरंजन भी होगा। लेकिन इसका मतलब ये नही की इस पुस्तक को आप हिस्ट्री textbook की तरह पढ़े। यह पुस्तक लेखक के अपनी व्यग्तिगत रायो से भरी पड़ी है और कई लोग इनसे असहमत भी होंगे। लेकिन यह पुस्तक अवश्य ही पढ़ने योग्य है ।

Great Transportation and Narration.

Perfect translation of a very difficult text with equally fine narration. You forget many times that this is a translated edition and not original. Narration is more of storytelling than a book reading.

This book will change the way you think about your

Very informative book. In starting it's difficult to understand few of the hindi words, sentence because they in suddh Hindi, once you keep listening, keep adapting and understanding it. I will recommend all to listen it once. It will change the concept of Life.
