Narrator Derek Perkins's tone reflects a thoughtful balance of authoritative knowledge and openness, making this audiobook less a lecture of ideas and more a shared conversation. Harari, the Israeli historian who is the author of SAPIENS, offers essays on the intellectual and practical needs of the 21st century, focusing on the grand-scale issues facing humanity. His concerns are significant, including automation of the workforce, the creeping public dissolution of fact in favor of subjective perception, the rise of "fake news," and the eventual effects of global warming in the face of political apathy. Listeners are encouraged to consider multiple points of view, and Perkins delivers them earnestly, creating a contemplative mood. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
