Product description

Review

I would recommend Sapiens to anyone who’s interested in the history and future of our species ― Bill Gates

Interesting and provocative… It gives you a sense of how briefly we’ve been on this Earth ― Barack Obama

Jaw-dropping from the first word to the last… It may be the best book I’ve ever read ― Chris Evans

Tackles the biggest questions of history and the modern world… Written in unforgettably vivid language ― Jared Diamond

Startling... It changes the way you look at the world ― Simon Mayo

One of the best books I’ve read recently… Gives an excellent overview of how our species has developed ― Lily Cole

Sweeps the cobwebs out of your brain… Radiates power and clarity, making the world strange and new ― Sunday Times

Sapiens is packed with heretical thinking and surprising facts. This riveting, myth-busting book cannot be summarised in any detail; you will simply have to read it -- John Gray ― Financial Times

Book Description

What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens? This bestselling history of our species challenges everything we know about being human.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fake print
Reviewed in India on 7 September 2018
The paper and print quality are very poor. Sending fake printed books in the name of special collector's edition and that too without colours. I found a better book through different vendor as compared to this Harsh Books.
