Sapiens – A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari

Image from Author's site.Just started this book and is the first nonfiction attempt I’ve made in a long time (aside from IT related technical documentation) and I am absolutely loving it. It is incredible to realise how insignificant modern history is compared with the time humans have been on earth.

Update: 12/10/2018 – So I finished this book some months ago and neglected to update the blog. I absolutely loved the macro view of Human history from hunter/gatherer to modern civilisation. Left me with a lot to think about and will probably be reading Homo Deus at some point in the future.

Welcome to the new site

This is the new blog format I’m testing. I may make this the main version once I’ve gotten things situated the way I like. I haven’t spent a ton of time in WordPress yet so it may take a while but will be a fun learning experience either way. I’m afraid I have not the eye of a designer so the look is a bit basic but I’m open to suggestions for nice looking themes.
