21 Lessons for the 21st Century By Yuval Noah Harrari

If there has ever been a manual for the future, this is it. This book logically delves into the foreseeable issues with the twenty-first century including unfathomable advancing technology, politics, war and the survival of the human race and helps us make sense of what this means for us and our uncharted future.

This is very unfair; but who said history was fair?
A book doesn’t give people food or clothes – but it can offer some clarity, thereby helping to level the global playing field. If this book empowers even a handful of people to join the debate about the future of our species, it has done its job." -Yuval Noah Harrari
