Humankind AudioBook Summary
Instant New York Times best seller
“The Sapiens of 2020.” (The Guardian)
From the author of the New York Times best seller Utopia for Realists comes “the riveting pick-me-up we all need right now” (People), the number one Dutch best seller Humankind, which offers a “bold” (Daniel H. Pink), “extraordinary” (Susan Cain) argument that humans thrive in a crisis and that our innate kindness and cooperation have been the greatest factors in our long-term success on the planet.
“Humankind made me see humanity from a fresh perspective.” (Yuval Noah Harari, author of the number one best seller Sapiens)

If there is one belief that has united the left and the right, psychologists and philosophers, ancient thinkers and modern ones, it is the tacit assumption that humans are bad. It’s a notion that drives newspaper headlines and guides the laws that shape our lives. From Machiavelli to Hobbes, Freud to Pinker, the roots of this belief have sunk deep into Western thought. Human beings, we’re taught, are by nature selfish and governed primarily by self-interest.
