21 lessons for the 21st century

Harari, Yuval N.
Predicting the future is always a dangerous business, yet as human beings, we’re always striving to get a sneak peek at what’s coming next, good or bad. In his latest book, Yuval Harari comments on twenty-one issues in contemporary society (topics such as automation, AI, globalization and mass migration) and explains how these concerns might evolve over the next century. Harari has an engaging writing style and is good at making complicated topics accessible to everyone. The book doesn’t provide ready-made solutions, but it does provide an excellent entry-point for critical conversations we need to have to shape the world for future generations.
