I was immediately hooked by this one from Yuval Noah Harari after reading his other book Sapiens. However, several hours into the audiobook, I found myself losing interest. It took me over a month to finish this one, which is unusually long for a 6-7 hour book and considering that I chewed through 3 hours in the first few days. I’m not quite sure why I grew disinterested, but nevertheless, I found it hard to finish.
I do think Harari is spot on regarding the future of AI and the workforce, education, politics, and religion. His clarity of thought is truly something worth aiming for, and I’m glad I made it through the book if only to listen to his ideas about those topics.
