What’s the last great book you read? Yuval Noah Harari’s “Sapiens.” That fellow connected an awful lot of dots in that work. I thought the book would be a dense read, a slog, with a struggle for my brain on every page. I had a highlighter ready to mark the more pavement-thick paragraphs I’d have to go back and re-ponder. Instead, I flew through it like it was a nonfiction

I’ve said it before and I’ll definitely say it in the future, the book Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari is truly mind-blowing. It’s changed the way I look at almost everything. I can’t endorse it enough.

What do you plan to read next? “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind,” by Yuval Noah Harari." I am trying to figure out what the devil is wrong with us that we seem so hell bent on destroying ourselves!

Such a great book. He goes into the fact that monogamy is probably nuts and not wired in us.

I am not satisfied knowing that something works, I want to know why it works. And when it comes to understanding human dynamics, asking why inevitably leads us down a path to early human kind. Sapiens is one of those wonderful books that opens our eyes to understanding how we became the animals we are today.
