Unstoppable Us book by historian Yuval Noah Harari

Mammoths flee, lions roar and run in blind terror, forests are burned to a crisp, a single deer looks back and sees a small monkey-like creature with a torch.

Renowned historian and professor Yuval Noah Harari brings to us the history of yesterday- our ancestors take over. From the day the strange species of Homo eructus stepped out of caves, bathed in light, plucking fruits from the trees to today’s Homo sapiens who have an IQ of over 150 and land on the moon, yet the species remain the same.

Amble across the vivid tale of when we built our stone tools, to when roaring beastly orange fire kindled in our torches. And we, the unstoppable sapiens crushed other humans. Read about humans marching across oceans, felling mammoths, and burning forests. Each step was a stepping stone for the sapiens empire. They did this with their superpower. We can use ours for the better or the worse.

With a flair that borders on magic, Yuval Noah Harari brings to the world the strangest story ever – ours. From the jungle monkeys that sucked on mangoes and fled from elephants to those who destroy cities with the push of a button. He tells us that we can vest our superpower after unlocking it and use it to  create a better tomorrow.
