    ... 'Sapiens' is a must read book. It should be mandatory reading in high school IMO.

    ... Sapiens is a blockbuster, a mind opener ...
    Thanks, odd and Strato, for your recommendations.

    I've just finished “Sapiens”, a really interesting read.

    It's one of the best books I've ever read.

    I expect Harari is researching and writing another book. Not just a project. Much more than that.
