100,000 years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens.
How ? Why?
summary of the progress of human evolution ,migration, Cognitive Revolution and Agricultural Revolution(spoiler-the author doesn’t favour it), how currency and coinage developed, the creation and spread of religions, the arrival of imperialism and capitalism, and the history of inequalities and injustices in a very concise novel format
Obviously it does not and cannot cover every detail but this book made me think about the above things quite a bit and that’s the way it should be I feel
A book which makes you think about it and when it’s written as beautifully yet simplistic it’s even better
