Just completed Part One of the book - excellent. There should be more than enough material to chew over in the next couple of months.

I've read the book, given my memory for things that I've read it would be useful to give a re-read, so I will try to participate.

I listened to Homo Deus on Audible several months back.
I enjoyed it very much, particularly the last two chapters.

IMO, I thought it was better, particularly because of the predicted advancements and the potential impact on humankind.
