A watered-down follow up to "Sapiens" that repeats a lot of the same material, and then adds levels of speculation. An interesting exercise, although I find he's dismissive of many points of view he doesn't share.

Interesting and thoughtful perspective on the future of human beings. Easy to follow and well researched. Good read.

Like Sapiens, a very good "read". An interesting look at the future. I don't agree with all his conclusions. I don't want to live forever. Quality of life is more important than quantity. The earth cannot provide the resources for that many people. I also read that humans can adapt at a certain pace to new things in technology and there is already a gap. Can anyone imagine this world with grumpier and crankier old people who are so far behind technology.?
On another subject, I was very disappointed to see that some previous reader had circled words and underlined phrases. How inconsiderate and immature.

He writes very openly about possibilities of the future, and it is difficult to conceive much of it, for instance we could just turn the "internet-of-everything" off, and the forces of nature will always exist. He describes the soul as a physical thing, but I think only we are thought to have one because stories are passed down. I hope we can figure out consciousness and qualia before moving ahead.
