The third book from Harari, probably the weakest of the three, but still a fun to read.
Klasický román z francouzského prostředí
Goodreads review: I agree with the opinion in the book and I like the whole idea but the arguments could have been much shorter and denser. It was bit boring. emergence of writing around 3,000 B.C. also receives brief treatment, although it constitutes 99.9% of the five-million-year history of the human species.

Fry is doing a great job of retelling the ancient well-known stories. As good as his previous book.
If you consider yourself an intellectual, you should read this since all people considering themselves as intellectuals probably have read this book as well, myself included.

It was so good, that I bought it in Czech for my grandma. She loved it and now it circulates in our family.
Četba této knížky mi zařídila 1 z maturity z češtiny, protože jsem si vytáhl téma renesance.
An instant favourite. What a thinker this Harari!
My first book read in English and while travelling.
A brief history of natural sciences. Heavily biased towards physics and chemistry.
