Editorial Reviews

Review

"A skillfully entertaining education.....Throughout, the authors seek to present a concise rendering of the full march of humankind and point out elements that are fictionalized, misrepresented, or exaggerated—and show how those elements have shaped human behavior, norms, and mores. " -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Prof. Yuval Noah Harari is a historian, philosopher, and the bestselling author of Sapiens: A Brief History of HumankindHomo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow21 Lessons for the 21st Century, and Sapiens: A Graphic History. His books have sold over 35 million copies in 65 languages, and he is considered one of the world’s most influential public intellectuals today. The Guardian has credited Sapiens with revolutionizing the non-fiction market and popularizing “brainy books”.

In 2020 Harari joined forces with renowned comics artists David Vandermeulen and Daniel Casanave, to create Sapiens: A Graphic History: a radical adaptation of the original Sapiens into a graphic novel series. This illustrated collection casts Yuval Noah Harari in the role of guide, who takes the reader through the entire history of the human species, accompanied by a range of fictional characters and traveling through time, space and popular culture references.

Born in Haifa, Israel, in 1976, Harari received his PhD from the University of Oxford in 2002, and is currently a lecturer at the Department of History, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He originally specialized in world history, medieval history and military history, and his current research focuses on macro-historical questions such as: What is the relationship between history and biology? What is the essential difference between Homo sapiens and other animals? Is there justice in history? Does history have a direction? Did people become happier as history unfolded? What ethical questions do science and technology raise in the 21st century?

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Work on iPad or MAC OS
By SMS on November 3, 2021
On my Kindle Paperwhite, the book opens in landscape mode and is too small to read. It is not possible to set it to portrait mode (one page at a time). It doesn't work at all on my iPad or MacBook Pro. On my Mac, it says I have to download an update, but there is no "update" per se. Now I have to try to figure out how to get a refund. (I pre-ordered it and the refund window has closed.) This is a criticism of the format, not the content itself (which I can't even see). However, I did enjoy the author's "regular" books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incompatible with iPad or iPhone — refund us or fix it
By Donald Twain on November 16, 2021
The book won't open. I've tried four iPads and an iPhone. Volume One opens fine on all devices, so I assume this is a technical glitch. (If in doubt, try opening the Free Sample; if it doesn't open for you then the full book also most likely won't open).
To the publisher: please fix this ASAP. This book is not cheap, and a lot of us would really like to have received something for our money, beyond frustration.
Thank you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Book is defective
By Amazon Customer on November 20, 2021
This book does not download on any iOS device. I have tested this with three different iPad and two different iPhone devices and all of them gave the same error ( see screenshot). I have reported this issue to Amazon support and all they could provide was ineffective boilerplate responses to reinstall the app etc. Many other customers have reported the same issue. Fix this, Amazon.
