Homo Deus, vol. 1: Technology and the Future of Sapience

A masterful book that addresses the history and present of our human race from a variety of specialized angles. This is a book that reminds us that the imaginations and thoughts of historical mankind have created the present.

This book is a must-read for managers as well as students. The upper and lower volumes are thick, so we recommend listening to the book on audible first.
