Review From User :

This is a book that is both entertaining and thought provoking. As the title suggests, it tells of a brief history of mankind divided into three segments: cognitive revolution, agricultural revolution and technological revolution.

In a way this book very much reminds me of "Justice" by Michael Sandel, in the sense that it questions my own interpretation of human civilisation. Is it justifiable that men were traditionally more superior than women Did people become domesticated by wheat, rice & potatoes in the transition into agricultural society or was it an improvement Do modern day technologies empower people or do they enslave people

Unlike other books on human history, this book offers a new perspective into our progress as human civilisation.
