Sapiens Replete with speculation, and some facts incorrect
Reviewed in the United States on September 2, 2018
Although the book is mostly readable, and includes some engaging historical information, it is replete with speculation and the author's own views and theories (many of which are arguable). In some places, it is quite superficial, failing to explore other explanations or delving more deeply into the ones provided. In other places, especially in the beginning where the author is talking about human evolution, the facts are incorrect. Having heard good things about this book, I was somewhat disappointed. It did not measure up to my expectations, which made me unhappy (those who have read this, will understand the basis for this comment).
