The author tries to sound intelligent, but his statements are really half-truths connected by sloppy logic links. Even by the standard of popular history/science, the quality of this "introductory history of humankind" is poor. The book contains facts mixed with the author's naive opinions about a broad range of topics disguised as facts.
Learning history from Yuval Harari is like relying on Facebook feed as your only source of news, you get hooked by the content easily, albeit it's mostly disinformation.
