How do history and biology define us?

Dr. Yuval Noah Harari is making waves with his revolutionary approach to the history of humankind. In his upcoming book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Dr. Harari explains that of the six different species of humans that inhabited Earth over a hundred thousand years ago Homo sapiens survived "because it is the only animal that can believe in things that exist purely in its own imagination." This provocative statement is just the foundation of the innovative perspective Dr. Harari is bringing to the discussion. See a brief teaser for Sapiens (on sale 2/10) below!
