Audio Book Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The audiobook edition of 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, read by Derek Perkins.

In twenty-one bite-sized lessons, Yuval Noah Harari explores what it means to be human in an age of bewilderment.
How can we protect ourselves from nuclear war, ecological cataclysms and technological disruptions? What can we do about the epidemic of fake news or the threat of terrorism? What should we teach our children?
Yuval Noah Harari takes us on a thrilling journey through today's most urgent issues. The golden thread running through his exhilarating new book is the challenge of maintaining our collective and individual focus in the face of constant and disorienting change.
Are we still capable of understanding the world we have created?

'Fascinating... compelling... [Harari] has teed up a crucial global conversation about how to take on the problems of the 21st century' Bill Gates, New York Times

'Truly mind-expanding... Ultra-topical' Guardian
'21 Lessons is, simply put, a crucial book' Adam Kay

    Continuing on from his previous 2 books Yuval Noah Harari has produce another thought provoking read/listen, extending and explaining some previously presented concepts and introducing some new ones. Derek Perkins is an excellent narrator, well suited to the book's nature. This is a book that deserves or demands a second or third reading/listening to capture the ideas in full.

    A 4 star rating since it's a great challenge to write a book on what is 21st Century all about, and to give it a perspective that is unbiased, and devoid of 'fiction' that is created by humans themselves. This book is a reflection of how complex our world is, and how complicated it is to write all this in a book in a language compréhensible to us. I must say I was a bit lost in many parts as I didn't find a conclusion. But I guess that's the point isnt it Mr. Harari? Thank you for this good read.

    I really enjoyed 21 Lessons for the 21dt Century! It's no sci-fi version of a dystopian future, instead it's thoughtful advice about what we can do in the present.

    Another absolutely riveting and thought provoking read. Harari has the ability to break concepts down and make them understandable. Will definitely be re-listening to this soon, as I did with the previous two books. The narrator is brilliant.
