Review: Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari

Sapiens: A Brief History of HumankindSapi­ens: A Brief His­to­ry of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari
My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars

This book is an impres­sive tome, but it’s also clear­ly biased in favor of a par­tic­u­lar polit­i­cal view. I sup­pose it isn’t pos­si­ble for a human to write whol­ly with­out bias, but I found it dis­tract­ing. The nar­ra­tor sound­ed dis­gust­ed and dis­mayed while read­ing the bits that blame a reliance on gov­ern­ment for the decay of the extend­ed fam­i­ly and local communities.
