Over the past century we’ve managed to do the impossible by controlling famine, plague, and wars. As Harari explains in his signature style – thorough yet riveting – famine, plague, wars, and natural disasters have been transformed from incomprehensible, uncontrollable forces of nature to manageable challenges. For the first time in history, more people die from overeating than from undereating; more people die from aging than from infectious diseases; more people kill themselves than are killed by soldiers and terrorists combined.
“Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically-acclaimed New York Times bestseller and international phenomenon Sapiens, returns with an even more original, compelling, and controversial book, turning his focus towards humanity’s future and our ongoing quest to become gods.”

Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams, nightmares, and possibilities of the 21st century – including overcoming death and creating artificial life. What would replace famine, plague, war, and natural disasters at the top of the list of human concerns? We are the self-made gods who rule the world. What destinies will we create for ourselves and others? It asks the fundamental question: What comes next? And how will we prevent ourselves from destroying the planet? This is the next step in evolution. This is the core of Homo Deus.
