New York Times Bestseller A Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.” One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us? Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas. Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become? Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

This is no ordinary book but an invitation to travel beyond the limitations of present perception and into a genuine sense that within ourselves we carry the potential to transcend the confines of the cognitive systems we have inherited. Lujan Matus is a bearer of ancient shamanic teachings, learnt in the parallel realms of dreaming and waking under the direct tutelage of his benefactor, the old nagual Lujan, and his charismatic cohorts - one of whom is revealed to be the Neolithic sage Juan Matus. The empowering sequence of lessons transmitted within these pages provides unprecedented insight into the intricacies of human existence, whilst simultaneously opening the doors to a universe of mythical proportions. Upon entering this remarkable continuum of events the reader begins to magically integrate, through the generation of internal imagery that bends the parameters of perception and invariably transforms consciousness itself. These teachings are a crucial reminder that life is a gift of endless potency when reflected in the light of awakened awareness. The clarity and integrity that shines throughout this book cuts right to the marrow in so many ways, and raises such vast questions about the very premise of our existence, that at times the content is alarming. With direct language and an otherworldly understanding of human nature, not to mention interdimensional travel, a non-linear proposition of time, and the elucidation of hieroglyphs that are keys to unlock awareness, Lujan eclipses the scratching-on-the-surface attempts of those who precede him and extends an invitation unlike any other.
