Lessons That Were Promised 
that were promised the title The book however is certainly thought provoking and debates many of the uestions I have asked myself about the future The main theme is that the pace of change is much faster than at any other time in human history and that by 2050 a date often uoted by the author life on Earth will look significantly different Yuval Noah Harari speculates that biotechnology information technology and Big Data algorithms will reshape the world for Homo sapiens humans over the coming decades to the point that the species will cease to exist in its current form by the beginning of the 22nd century The author debates in detail the role that artificial intelligence and these algorithms will have and how they will influence and possibly even control large aspects of our lives as time goes onThe book begins with a lot of detail about how collection and analysis of huge amounts of data and advances in technology will allow us to even re engineer our bodies and in particular our brains to allow artificial intelligence to now what we are thinking in order for it to make better decisions for us It goes on to speculate that robots could make huge numbers of people redundant and irrelevant forcing people to change careers at an increasingly regular rate There is then a lot of discussion about religion in particular the author s own Jewish religion and how fiction has played and continues to play a crucial role in lifeI enjoyed the book but if you are looking for life lessons to follow then it probably isn t the book for you If you want a glimpse into the possible future of the human race and a summary of how we got to the point we are at now then this is something for you It is certainly a very well written book Basically they are giving pirated third class paper uality version This is expected from Flipkart but not People might argue that expectations should be low for a low price but I say that the Big discounts displayed on products should also be according to similar uality stuff and not the original publication Mr Harari is brilliant at delineating our distant history but his future extrapolations don t seem as well informed Here Are Some Of His some of his A cell phone will one day perform the function of a doctor to people in developing countriesUh how exactly By providing information and receiving data you mean Like it does NOW And how exactly will a phone produce and administer medicine2 3 D printers will make garment workers superfluous You will get a code go to a printing center and they will give you your t shirtAgain you can print a t shirt NOW That does not mean you will be able to print out jeans cashmere sweaters and Nike sneakers any time soon or ever3 All menialworking class jobs will be replaced by machineryThis is not exactly a new concept4 Most things exist only in our collective imagination Every single entity all companies only exist in our minds because the company Peugeot has an interesting historyThis is from Sapiens but mentioned here to illustrate a point Another whacky extrapolationThere s a New Yorker article in here somewhere but 21 Lessons lacks the impact of Sapiens because it s not about our distant past which the author is brilliant at but our distant future of which he is less than convincing SINCE refused to post my review here I had to reword itThis book is full of senseless Hollywood style technophobia and modern left wing propaganda coupled with CNN rhetoric And what is his advice for future Know yourself and meditate What ind of advice is that He literally showed no guidelines for anyone on how to prepare for the future literally none the books title is misguiding to begin with Essential reading uality of ideas opinions and writing in line with his earlier booksA note to Penguin and its imprints Please stop printing with Replika The uality of print is abysmal and this is the seco.
