2.     His previous books are both global phenomena: in Sapiens he writes about the past, and in Homo Deus he writes about the future. In 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, he looks at the here and now, helping us to focus our minds on the essential questions we should be asking ourselves today.

5.    Harari says of 21 Lessons:

"My new book will aim to answer the overarching question: what is happening in the world today, what is the deeper meaning of these events and how can we individually steer our way through them? The questions I aim to explore will include what the rise of Trump signifies, whether or not God is back, and whether nationalism can help solve problems like global warming."
