Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind By Harari, Yuval N. Book - 2015 | First U.S. edition.

1 1/2 stars. Intriguing, fresh take on critical transitions in the evolution of human sapiens but seriously marred by regular and blatant editorializing. The latter builds suspicion that his scholarship,source selection, footnotes etc are carefully selected to support his soap box views on contemporary human society and culture. Perhaps his fresh insights are, indeed, marginal and not widely supported by more careful scholars.
