Episode of
The James Altucher Show
This interview is probably the most thought-provoking interview I've ever aired. Essentially, Yuval Harari is the expert on human evolution. I've recommended his book "Sapiens" more than any other book in the past 5 years. And not only me: Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg's say it's their favorite book, too. And now Yuval has a brand new book, "21 Lessons for The 21st Century," which covers so many topics: "the myth of free will," perception, mental health, the rise of robots, algorithms, hackers, how "The Automation Revolution" will impact the economy, your job, your quality of life and so on. Plus he tells us what you start can doing now to feel more comfortable and prepared for all these changes.    Links & Resources: 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari  Visit Yuval's website www.ynharari.com  Yuval’s course on Coursera   Also Mentioned: "The Ultimate Guide to Self Publishing," which you can get for free right now by visiting jamesaltucher.com/publish.
