Review - “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind”

There are few books that can be recommended seriously and broadly to many, and Sapiens is on this short list. Admittedly, it, like any historical narrative, is one that features its author's bias, but this is a certainty of a field that is not and cannot be objective. That said, rather than penalize Sapiens for such a trait, I suggest we celebrate it for telling an insightful, coherent, detailed, and fascinating tale of our origins, filled with a wisdom sorely missing of this age, that dares to consider the realities and obviousness of the direction our species treads. Highly recommended.
