A brief history of humankind

￼ from the back cover,
Fire gave us power.
Gossip helped us cooperate.
Agriculture need is hungry for more.
Mythology maintained law and order.
Money gave us something we can really trust.
Contradictions created culture.
Science made us deadly.
This is a thrilling account of our extraordinary history-from insignificant apes to rulers of the world.
So I’m half way.
Tbones, its “Future Shocky”
It’s up your alley
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a fun, engaging look at early human history..... you’ll have a hard time putting it down-Bill Gates￼￼￼
Interesting and provocative...
It gives you a sense of perspective on how briefly we been on this earth, how short things like agriculture and science have been around, and why it makes sense for us not to take them for granted.￼￼
