“Sapiens” is worth to listen to not only because it provides the in depth details involved in the evolution of man but also because of the way it is written by Yuval Noah Harari. The narration is without any weakness of any sort because Derek Perkins is the right one for the job. The story is not sensational as it is historical in nature but the appealing spice never ends. One hundred thousand years are travelled back in history to check the truth and the validity of different truths that have been told to us.
The writer surely possessed some information about subjects like biology as well because the scientific information and links is quite concrete. Yuval introduces six species that are not like the humans of today but they serve as the bases of our race. The question also arises that whether those species died or evolved. It could also be possible that they merged into single Homo sapiens.
This also poses a threat to the current generation as well because if this is the law of nature then this generation too can evolve or parish in the coming days. The concept of the book can be understood in a better way if read it along Homo Deus and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century. There is also a thought to look forward to the future and be prepared for the things that are going to happen in the days to come.
Human race’s tendency to evolve and perish threatens us to some extent but there is a hope for an evolutionary future too. It’s also up to us that what we want to turn into in the days to come.
