Hey, do you want to know more about human history? Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, favourite book of Ashton Kutcher and Naval Ravikant can help you to understand it.

“The brainy book I seem to be sharing or talking about the most lately,” says Ashton Kutcher.

It is a book by Yuval Noah Harari, first published in Hebrew in Israel in 2011 based on a series of lectures Harari taught at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and in English in 2014. The book surveys the history of humankind from the evolution of archaic human species in the Stone Age up to the twenty-first century, focusing on Homo sapiens. The account is situated within a framework that intersects the natural sciences with the social sciences.

Harari’s work situates its account of human history within a framework, he sees the natural sciences as setting the limits of possibility for human activity and sees the social sciences as shaping what happens within those bounds. The academic discipline of history is the account of cultural change.

Harari surveys the history of humankind in the Stone Age up to the twenty-first century, focusing on Homo sapiens. He divides the history of Sapiens into four major parts.

“Best book I’ve read in the last year (2015),” mentioned Naval Ravikant on his twitter page.

Also a favourite of Ryan Shea. He has gifted this most to his near and dear ones.
