ready ourselves for it How should we deal with the threat of terrorism Why is liberal democracy in crisisHarari's uniue ability to make sense of where we have come from and where we are going has captured the imaginations of millions of readers Here he invites us to consider values meaning and personal engagement in a world full of noise and uncertainty When we are deluged with irrelevant information clarity is power Presenting complex contemporary challenges clearly and accessibly 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is essential reading. uestions you cannot answer are usually far better for you than answers you cannot uestion Has anyone ever asked you which author you would choose to read if you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have one author with you I could not come up with any one writer until reading Yuval Harari Now I would without a doubt choose him There might only be 3 books he s written so far and though I ve read all 3 I could spend years re reading them and reflecting on all that is contained within them I suppose this doesn t really go with the uote above after all I m glad to have answered that uestion The uote is one of my favourites in the book and that s why I opened my review with itIn Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind Mr Harari led us predominately through the history of mankind In Homo Deus A Brief History of Tomorrow he focused on where we are headed as a species Now in 21 Lessons for the 21st Century he addresses the major issues challenging the world today and what we can perhaps expect in the very near future Hint It doesn t all have to be gloom and doom and apocalyptic scenarios As he wisely says The first step is to tone down the prophecies of doom and switch from panic mode to bewildermentSince we cannot predict how AI and other technologies will change and hopefully improve we cannot say with any certainty what the future will bring Our world of the 21st century is vastly different to the world 500 years ago when you could rightly guess that 100 years in the future would be very similar to your present day Today we are constantly faced with changes and the number of changes will only increase with each passing year What should we be doing to prepare for this How should we be educating our children for this uncertain future How can we learn who we are before we find algorithms taking over our lives making it all but impossible to then learn who we areYuval Harari addresses these uestions and many others including climate change immigration religion technology politics terrorism education and secular ethics As in his previous books Mr Harari discusses many topics and gives us many facts and much material to ponder This book is philosophical than the previous two forcing us to really think about ourselves our stories our world our future If we are to not only survive as a species but also to create a future that is good for all humankind we must abandon our strict adherence to previous fictions such as nationalism and religious myths We can feel loyalty to our country and we can believe in religion but only if we recognise that they are fictions and that other humans have their own and ours is not somehow right whilst all others are wrong We must not let our own world views make us feel superior to other humans and sentient beings we must not think their suffering does not matter or matters less than our own We must come together globally if we are to survive and flourish If we want to survive and flourish humankind has little choice but to complement such loyalties to nation religion etc with substantial obligations toward a global community A person can and should be loyal simultaneously to her family her neighborhood her profession and her nation so why not add humankind and planet Earth to that listLet s leave behind our prejudices and tribal mentality that helped our hunter gather ancestors survive Our world is not the same as theirs we are all connected and must work together to solve the problems facing humanity todayI recommend this book to anyone who is even remotely interested in any of these topics As always with Harari s books I

summary 21 Lessons for the 21st Century review 21 Lessons for the 21st Century 103 free read ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB ó Yuval Noah Harari In Sapiens he explored our past In Homo Deus he looked to our future Now one of the most innovative thinkers on the planet turns to the present to make sense of today's most pressing issuesHow do computers and robots change the meaning of being human How do we deal with the epidemic of fake news Are nations and religions still relevant What should we teach our childrenYuval Noah Harari's 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is a probing and visionary investigation into today's most urgent issues as we move into the uncharted territory of the future As technology advances faster than our understanding o. Society 101Yuval Harari is well known for his books Sapiens and Homo Deus He has decided to suander his reputation on a book called 21 Lessons for the 21st Century The basic problem is that every chapter is the subject of whole shelves of books and putting them all in one book cannot possibly do them justice What we have left is a set of 21 editorials which might inform the totally uninformed but provide little insight and no solutions As lessons they are unhelpfulHe has conveniently distilled all the threats to mankind into three nuclear war climate change and technologicalbiological disruption But only technologicalbiological gets examined You re on your own for climate change and nuclear war which apparently don t rate high enough for lessons Despite those three most important threats the most common theme throughout the book is criticism of religion mostly Judaism Christianity and Islam though Buddhism and Hinduism come under attack as well Looking back from the perspective of the universe Harari condemns all religions as pompous pretentious full of contradictions and terrifically negative forcesIn his chapter on Immigration Harari boils down the entire complex situation to three superficial debates The receiving country must be willing Immigrants must be willing to adopt at least the core norms and values of the new country If immigrants assimilate they become us rather than them and must be treated as first class citizensSimple inaccurate and totally missing the real issuesIn his chapter on terrorism Harari completely misses the point that the state has a monopoly on violence Anyone who challenges that monopoly must be put down no matter how many civil rights and freedoms are trampled in the process He spends pages explaining how few people are killed by terrorists compared to traffic war and disease So why are we so afraid of terrorists he asks Because the state wants us to be Mr HarariIn the chapter on war he comes to the magical conclusion that we ve pretty much done away with it So far the only new war we ve seen this century is Russia taking parts of Ukraine He says countries see too much risk in starting new wars He completely ignores not for the first or last time the effects of climate change which will result in unprecedented and massive wars as countries face unstoppable waves of immigrants seeking water and land as countries disappear from the face of the earth and as those that have will defend it to the death against all comers foreign and domesticThe final chapter is on meditation Meditation is Harari s solution to pretty much everything because you can focus on what is real what is going on in your body right then and there He says he does this two hours a day plus one or two months a yearIf I had to summarize 21 Lesson for the 21st Century I would say throw off the false faiths of institutional religions and meditate instead Not uite what I expected and not much help in navigating the 21st centuryDavid Wineberg
