One hundred thousand years ago, at least six

different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one-homo


What happened to the others?And what may happen to us?

In this first volume of the adaptation of his ground-breaking book,

renowned historian Yuval Harari tells the story of humankind's creation and

evolution, exploring the ways in which biology and history have defined us

and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be 'human'. From

examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to

charting the rise of empires, Sapiens challenges us to reconsider accepted beliefs, connect past

developments with contemporary concerns, and view specific events within the

context of larger ideas.

Featuring easy-to-understand text covering the first part of the original

edition, this adaptation of the mind-expanding book furthers the ongoing

conversation as it introduces Harari's ideas to a wider new readership.
