Book Review: Homo Deus – Interesting ideas but sloppy writing

Homo Deus: A Brief History of TomorrowHomo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Good Ideas worth thinking about but I’m not at all a fan of the writing style.

Ideas are good in terms of framing why Humanism is relevant and why it is not likely to be around for the future. Not a whole lot in prescribing what sociopolitical implications Dataism will have, but provides reasonable amount of supporting evidence.

However, this book has a very intellectually sloppy writing style that makes broad reaching statements as if they are truth. I’m pretty sure the author follows some sort of 80/20 rule for when a sentence can be said genetically. This know-it-all attitude is very annoying.
