📝Homo Deus Book Synopsis : NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically-acclaimed New York Times bestseller and international phenomenon Sapiens, returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanity’s future, and our quest to upgrade humans into gods. Over the past century humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. This may seem hard to accept, but, as Harari explains in his trademark style—thorough, yet riveting—famine, plague and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists and criminals put together. The average American is a thousand times more likely to die from binging at McDonalds than from being blown up by Al Qaeda. What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet earth, what destinies will we set ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century—from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus. With the same insight and clarity that made Sapiens an international hit and a New York Times bestseller, Harari maps out our future.

But how does it feel when you haven't eaten for days on end and you have no clue where to get new morsel of food? Most people today have never experienced this excruciating torment.

📒Born A Crime ✍ Trevor Noah
📝Born a Crime Book Synopsis : #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The compelling, inspiring, and comically sublime story of one man’s coming-of-age, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Michiko Kakutani, New York Times • Newsday • Esquire • NPR • Booklist Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents’ indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the earliest years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, steal him away. Finally liberated by the end of South Africa’s tyrannical white rule, Trevor and his mother set forth on a grand adventure, living openly and freely and embracing the opportunities won by a centuries-long struggle. Born a Crime is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It is also the story of that young man’s relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother—his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life. The stories collected here are by turns hilarious, dramatic, and deeply affecting. Whether subsisting on caterpillars for dinner during hard times, being thrown from a moving car during an attempted kidnapping, or just trying to survive the life-and-death pitfalls of dating in high school, Trevor illuminates his curious world with an incisive wit and unflinching honesty. His stories weave together to form a moving and searingly funny portrait of a boy making his way through a damaged world in a dangerous time, armed only with a keen sense of humor and a mother’s unconventional, unconditional love. Praise for Born a Crime “[A] compelling new memoir . . . By turns alarming, sad and funny, [Trevor Noah’s] book provides a harrowing look, through the prism of Mr. Noah’s family, at life in South Africa under apartheid. . . . Born a Crime is not just an unnerving account of growing up in South Africa under apartheid, but a love letter to the author’s remarkable mother.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times “[An] unforgettable memoir.”—Parade “What makes Born a Crime such a soul-nourishing pleasure, even with all its darker edges and perilous turns, is reading Noah recount in brisk, warmly conversational prose how he learned to negotiate his way through the bullying and ostracism. . . . What also helped was having a mother like Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah. . . . Consider Born a Crime another such gift to her—and an enormous gift to the rest of us.”—USA Today “[Noah] thrives with the help of his astonishingly fearless mother. . . . Their fierce bond makes this story soar.”—People “[Noah’s] electrifying memoir sparkles with funny stories . . . and his candid and compassionate essays deepen our perception of the complexities of race, gender, and class.”—Booklist (starred review) “A gritty memoir . . . studded with insight and provocative social criticism . . . with flashes of brilliant storytelling and acute observations.”—Kirkus Reviews

📒A Book Review Of Harari S Homo Deus A Brief History Of Tomorrow ✍ Henry Appleyard
📝A Book Review of Harari s Homo Deus A Brief History of Tomorrow Book Synopsis : Literature Review from the year 2017 in the subject Literature - Modern Literature, grade: A, University of Auckland, language: English, abstract: Homo sapiens make sense of the world through stories, contextualising consciences in communication and interaction. This was the premise for Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind (2014), looking back at the last 75,000 years of human socio-cultural evolution “to ask big questions and answer them scientifically”. In a similar vein, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow (2015) looks forward, hypothesising on this growing symbiotic relationship with artificial intelligence (AI) as the next stage of evolution. What we see in the Anthropocene epoch is the writing of history and stories shifting to computational processes, narrated by the user/human but plotted by AI.

📒Holding ✍ Graham Norton
📝Holding Book Synopsis : The Sunday Times bestseller and debut novel from Graham Norton. 'Poised and perceptive' Sunday Times '... a deftly plotted story as moving as it is compelling' Sunday Mirror 'Deeply accomplished ... brilliantly observed' Good Housekeeping '... one of the more authentic debuts I've read in recent years ... in such an understated manner, eschewing linguistic eccentricity ... in favour of genuine characters and tender feeling ... this is a fine novel' John Boyne, Irish Times 'It's funny and wonderfully perceptive' Wendy Holden 'It is beautiful and yet devastatingly sad' Daily Express 'Strenuously charming ... surprisingly tender' Metro 'Heartwarming and observant' Stylist The remote Irish village of Duneen has known little drama; and yet its inhabitants are troubled. Sergeant PJ Collins hasn't always been this overweight; mother of two Brid Riordan hasn't always been an alcoholic; and elegant Evelyn Ross hasn't always felt that her life was a total waste. So when human remains are discovered on an old farm, suspected to be that of Tommy Burke - a former love of both Brid and Evelyn - the village's dark past begins to unravel. As the frustrated PJ struggles to solve a genuine case for the first time in his life, he unearths a community's worth of anger and resentments, secrets and regret. Darkly comic, touching and at times profoundly sad. Graham Norton employs his acerbic wit to breathe life into a host of lovable characters, and explore - with searing honesty - the complexities and contradictions that make us human.

📒Do I Make Myself Clear ✍ Harold Evans
📝Do I Make Myself Clear Book Synopsis : Harold Evans has edited everything from the urgent files of battlefield reporters to the complex thought processes of Henry Kissinger, and he has been knighted for his services to journalism. In Do I Make Myself Clear?, his definitive guide to writing well, Evans brings his indispensable insight to the art of clear communication. The right words are oxygen to our ideas, but the digital era, with all of its TTYL, LMK and WTF, has been cutting off that oxygen flow. The compulsion to be precise has vanished from our culture, and in writing of all kinds we see a trend towards more - more speed and more information, but far less clarity. Evans provides practical examples of how editing and rewriting can make for better communication, even in the digital age. Do I Make Myself Clear? is an essential text, and one that will provide every reader an editor at their shoulder.
📒Homo Deus ✍ Samuel Harris
📝Homo Deus Book Synopsis : HOMO DEUS Read HOMO DEUS -The Future of Mankind on your PC, Mac, smart phone, table, ipad or Kindle device. How many of us truly know the future? How many of us can gaze into the distant world, peering beyond the veil and see the truth of what is to come? Chances are, aside from those who purport psychic powers, no one here can see the future. We have no ability to see what is coming down the pipeline. We cannot predict what will happen tomorrow, next week or even next year with any form of confidence. Time makes fools of us all.So how then are we to consider what is to come? How can we as people determine what the future is going to be like? Well, while we might not be able to confidently say what will happen tomorrow or next year, we are able to make a series of conclusions based off of the patterns of the past. You see, history is more or less indicative of how the world will continue to move. History is based off of long patterns that if viewed from a top level, will show that a lot of things could be accurately predicted. When we say prediction, we are not talking about specifics. No historian would have been able to predict that it would have been the exact assassination of Francis Ferdinand that would have started World War I, but many historians had seen the history of violence and the powder keg that had been the Balkans and would know that someday a major catastrophe would have incited a long drawn out war. Seeing the future isn't about predicting specific events, but rather it is using the information from the patterns that we have today and seeing just what the future has in store for us on a large level. In our modern society, there is a great deal of doom and gloom. Many people are living in fear that we are perhaps in the worst time of history. They point to things like climate change, the political sphere, globalization and terrorism, using these things as evidences as to why the modern-day era is the worst that it's ever been. The problem with this synopsis is that it is entirely ignorant of history! The purpose of this book is to shed light on the patterns of history and show that the future is something to be welcome instead of feared. If you are someone who has worried about the future of our planet, of our countries and the state of affairs, then I would welcome you to kick back, relax and give this book a read. Together we are going to be looking at three distinct phases of our timeline, the past, the present and what we believe the future will be like. We will look at the biggest problems our world has faced over the years, we will examine the patterns of time and most importantly, we will use those patterns to reveal what is in store for humanity on a higher level. Are you ready? Let's begin! In this book we're going to cover: A Brief History of Mankind The Modern Life Human Optimization Human Destiny Transcendence And much, much more!
