Yuval Noah Harari’s book Sapiens appeared in his mother tongue Hebrew in 2011 and was published in English almost five years later. It is a fascinating read about the evolution of homo sapiens and their dominance over earth. As I was reading it, I was reminded of a client of mine who, when he spotted that I was carrying a popular fiction novel, questioned me on why I read fiction. I explained that fiction oft en packaged factual data in a more understandable manner, once you removed all the other character details.
