Good Read: Sapiens- A Brief History of Humanind

I spent the last week plowing through Sapiens, A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari

This 500 page book is anything but a tome, rather, it is a gripping account of our history through the lens of the cognitive, agricultural, scientific and industrial revolutions that defines much of human history. 

As we further change the world for our purpose (environment, genetic engineering etc) we are left with the scary and challenging question of what do we want (or want to become)?

Now back to more mundane matters, such as my job in the hospital and getting people to wash their hands.
