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.

I read this book and I really want to thank the author of the book for providing such a great concept and the brief history of human humankind. The author gives us a chance to understand the past from where we started.
I am also a writer a poet and this book also inspires me.

Should I read this first before Homo Deus?

I do think reading Sapiens first is a good idea.

I actually did the whole series of his books backwards.. Just now reading Sapiens.

I really don't think it matters but in retrospect I would have rather started from Sapiens.
