I’m re-listening to Sapiens, Yuval Noah Harari’s first book on the mystery that is mankind. It is one of the most captivating reads I’ve come across. A book I can’t recommend enough.
In the opening chapters, Harari traces our timeline, diving deep into the lives of our hunter-gatherer ancestors.
He doesn’t mince words when it comes to our abominable track record with the ecosystem. While it’s sobering to comprehend our nomadic forebears being just as destructive as us, it also offers us a curious vantage point.
We broke the cycle of life. Gave birth to imagined truths like limited liability corporations and national anthems and made them stick for billions of souls the world over.
Make your precious time count.
