One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one-homo sapiens.

What happened to the others?

And what may happen to us?

In this first volume of the adaptation of his ground-breaking book, renowned historian Yuval Harari tells the story of humankind’s creation and evolution, exploring the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human”. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens challenges us to reconsider accepted beliefs, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and view specific events within the context of larger ideas.

Featuring easy-to-understand text covering the first part of the original edition, this adaptation of the mind-expanding book furthers the ongoing conversation as it introduces Harari’s ideas to a wider new readership.

‘[A] wonderful graphic novel… Smart, funny and dipped deep in the reality of what we as a species are…’ Big Issue *Books of the Year*
