Book Of The Month

This October, join us for a whirlwind tour of the history of humankind with Sapiens ...

Translated into English, the Latin words Homo Sapien mean “wise man”.

In his best selling book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yval Noah Harari explores what it is that made this one species the most powerful on earth.

Sapiens takes us on a whirlwind tour of the history of this planet, and considers how discoveries and innovations such as fire, farming, money and science have shaped us. Harari puts forward the case that as humans, it’s our capacity to tell stories and myths that sets us apart, bringing us together and giving us more power than any other species.

Provocative and thorough in its explorations, Sapiens charts an extraordinary history of humankind - where we’ve come from and where we might be going.

With more than 12 million copies sold, it has gained praise from Bill Gates, Barack Obama and lots of our Dublin readers too as many of them mentioned it as one of their recommended reads.
