**FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE MILLION COPY BESTSELLER SAPIENS**
Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus looked to the future. 21 Lessons for the 21st Century explores the present.
In this new book, Harari helps us to grapple with a world that is increasingly hard to comprehend. How can we protect ourselves from nuclear war, ecological cataclysms and technological disruptions? What can we do about the epidemic of fake news? What can we do about terrorism? Which civilization dominates the world – the West, China, Islam?
With his trademark clarity, vision and refreshingly broad perspective, Harari takes us on a thrilling journey through today’s most urgent issues as well as turning to more individual concerns. The golden thread running through this exhilarating book is the challenge of maintaining our focus and attention in the face of constant and destabilising change. Ultimately what we and our children will need is mental stability, compassion, resilience and reason. This is the essence of the ongoing education that will equip us for the 21st Century.
