WHEN YUVAL TALKS, THE WORLD LISTENS: Yuval Harari has sold over 23 million books world-wide, and Sapiens is widely recognized as a publishing phenomenon. It was recommended by Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, and many others, has been translated into over 50 languages, and has topped bestseller lists ever since its publication.
A NEW FORMAT FOR A WIDER REACH: The graphic format will be a must for the hundreds of thousands of Canadians who bought Sapiens in its various formats, as well as appeal to a whole new (younger, etc.) audience who may have been put off by the size and seriousness of the original.
WELL-REGARDED PARTNERS: This edition is being co-created with renowned graphic novel artists David Vandermeulen (co-writer) and Daniel Casanave, and originated by Yuval’s French publisher, Albin Michel.
LAUNCH OF AN AMBITIOUS PROJECT: This is the first of a possible 4-volume series, each book to be published a year apart.
“Here is a simple reason why Sapiens has risen explosively to the ranks of an international best-seller. It tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language. You will love it!”
—Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel, Collapse, and The World until Yesterday
“I have just read Yuval Noah Harari’s book Sapiens. It is brilliant. Most likely the best – and I have read very many –on the history of humankind. I have never read anything better. I think it is sad to think of all the people that will not get to read it.”
”Sapiens is the sort of book that sweeps the cobwebs out of your brain. Its author, Yuval Noah Harari, is a young Israeli academic and an intellectual acrobat whose logical leaps have you gasping with admiration…Harari’s writing radiates power and clarity.“
—The Sunday Times
”Sapiens is packed with heretical thinking and surprising facts. This riveting, myth-busting book cannot be summarised in any detail; you will simply have to read it.“
”Sapiens is a starburst of a book, as enjoyable as it is stimulating.“
”Sapiens is a fast-paced, witty and challenging romp through 70,000 years of human history…I did love it, and if you are interested in the whole story of humankind, I’m confident that you will love it too."
“Not only is Harari eloquent and humane, he is often wonderfully, mordantly funny…. Sapiens is a brave and bracing look at a species that is mostly in denial about … the crossroads it is rapidly approaching.”
