“‘Unstoppable Us’ is the book I wanted to read as a child,” Harari said in a statement. “It tells the story of humans from the time we were just monkeys living in Savannah until the time we almost became god-like by flying in airplanes and spaceships. It’s a fun book – I hope young readers will not put it down. from itself – and it is also deadly serious, with the aim of preoccupying you with the questions it raises. “
