matkaboska's review against another edition
Chciałabym móc dać 3.5, całkiem fajne do posłuchania ale z drugiej strony takie zbyt proste w powadze poruszanych tematów
Very thought provoking, so that already makes it worth a read. I liked the new perspectives on some very current topics. Some musings go further than I would wish which gets pretty dry and redundant.
I like the topics on religion, nationalism, and god. It’s an interesting book to read; but it didn’t grip me like Sapiens, and I felt that some chapters were watered down versions of things he had already discussed - for instance in the technology segment of the book there is a lot of repetitive themes and ideas. I enjoyed it, but if I had to be honest I’d say it was a 2.5 stars at maximum because of some abstraction and also some predictions that have truly not manifested correctly.
Another thought provoking book to start the year off strong. I had a bit of higher expectations for this book after reading Sapiens. And I started to get a bit anxious reading this book when the author really starts expanding on what society may have to come. This was a great book to really get yourself thinking and also to spark conversations with others. A bit extreme on at some portions but I think that was intended. I would still recommend Sapiens over this book, but this was also a great read
