In Homo Deus, Yuval Harari (Sapiens) poses an oxymoron: a history of the future. Once ruled by the fates of famine, plague, and war, humankind, argues Harai has attained a degree of control on these disasters. Today, obesity kills more humans than starvation, old age more than disease and suicide more than murder. Having reduced three horsemen of the apocalypse to technical problems, what will humans do next? Reviewers found this a “relentlessly fascinating book” (Kirkus reviews). Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson “brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit and remarkable brevity.” He reveals how we fit within the universe and how does the universe fits within us. Tyson “distills the past, present, and (theoretical) future of the cosmos into a quick and thoroughly enjoyable read” (Kirkus Reviews).
