Synopsis

**THE MULTI-MILLION COPY BESTSELLER**

Discover the book that inspired Gareth Southgate's leadership style.


'Interesting and provocative... It gives you a sense of how briefly we've been on this Earth' Barack Obama

What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens? Yuval Noah Harari challenges everything we know about being human in the perfect read for these unprecedented times.


Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it: us.

In this bold and provocative book, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here and where we're going.
