I have been reading two books by the Israeli historian Yuval Noah Harari, Sapiens which I posted to Bookshelf above and then on the recommendation of Joe Skrzynski who saw it on the site, Homo Deus which is a logical follow on and equally breathtaking.
As is my want I was not just putting the title on the web site but also talking to my friends about these astonishing books - my pal Rachel Goldberg said that another friend of hers was raving about these books and had sent her a link to an interview with the author from a BBC program.
I immediately watched it and felt that I had come to know the man who appeared very much as the embodiment of his written words, and while I had expressed the desire to meet and talk with him I now feel that is not so urgent.
If you can stream video on whatever device go ahead - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJ1yS9JIJKs.
The other gratifying aspect of this story is that it closes the loop on the purpose and intention of this site.
Thanks to Jackson Frazer for his work on the look and feel as well.
