Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow
Yuval Noah Harari. Harari concludes that Homo sapiens prevailed by happenstance, a capacity for language and socialization, curiosity, mercantile fervor and technological prowess — which may yet destroy everything. He tracks happiness as a measuring stick of progress. While always neutral on matters of personal belief, getAbstract recommends this roiling, off-the-beaten path tour de force to readers with patience and open minds, even those who might disagree along the way.

This is Yuval Noah Harari's third book and our third Note. His first two focused on the past Sapiens and the future Homo Deus. In this one, we "zoom in on the here and now" as we take a look at 21 of the most important things to be thinking about in the 21st century. Like all of his books, this is a thoughtful and thought-provoking look at some globally Big Ideas. Although obviously outside the scope of our normal Optimizing, I think it's important stuff. In the Note we explore dealing with "Disillusionment" the title of chapter 1 by switching from "panic to bewilderment" , the future of health care and driving and jobs! Optimize every facet of your life.
