"There is surely no one alive who is better at explaining our world than Yuval Noah Harari - he is the lecturer we all wish we'd had at university. Reading this book, I must have interrupted my partner a hundred times to pass on fascinating things I'd just read. Harari has done it again - 21 Lessons is, simply put, a crucial book." -- Adam Kay "I'm predicting that 21 Lessons for the 21st Century will complete a Harari hat-trick of classics... The clarity of Harari's vision is astonishing... thanks to him, the world makes better sense to many more of us." * Bookseller *Book of the Month* * "Harari thrills his readers because he addresses the biggest possible topics with confidence and brio. Compared with the subjects he tackles, anything else we might read looks piffling and parochial. We all would like to know how we came to be what we are and what we might one day become." * Evening Standard * "[21 Lessons for the 21st Century] retools some of Harari's earlier research in a more comprehensible form and applies it to our world today... showing you things you thought you knew about in a completely new way... I find Harari's writing exhilarating." * Radio Times * "Intelligent, lucid and refreshingly unpretentious." * DesignCurial * "Harari's latest epic study covers Brexit, fake news and welfare in terms so lucid your own IQ immediately leaps." * Evening Standard * "The great thinker of our age." * The Times * "Modern life can seem overwhelming. Fortunately, Yuval Noah Harari's new book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, is on hand to guide us through it. Poolside reading with purpose." * Elle * "Harari's intellectual pyrotechnics remain wildly entertaining" -- John Thornhill * Financial Times * "[Harari's] purpose is to reveal the hard-learned lessons we have all already encountered this century... the persuasiveness of Harari's philosophical analysis, and the engaging quality of his writing, is hard to deny" * Esquire *
