History began when humans invented gods.  It will end when we become gods.  Yuval Noah Harari's sweeping and provocative Sapiens retells the history of our species from an entirely new perspective.  Homo sapiens rules the world, Harari says, because we are the only animals that can believe in things that exist purely in the imagination. Like money, states, and gods.
