Humanity's successes, their failures, and their place in the world: All in one little history tour.

This iconic title only really touches the tip of the iceberg with regard to the way humans have influenced and been influenced by the world they came out of.  But for one title and author taking on the task of describing human history, Dr. Harari does the job like no other.  There is a veil that shrouds the reality of what human progression has been and what humans are, and this book articulates what lies beyond that shroud, as though it were fiction.
