The Book Interrupted women discuss “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” by Yuval Noah Harari, storytelling, keepsakes, empathy, and the separatism between nature and man. Lia finishes the episode and shocks the other members by cutting her Sapiens book in half for ease of carrying and reading.

Discussion Points:

  • Our ability to tell stories unifies us: corporations, money, human rights, government
  • The collection of data
  • Re-reading books
  • Good luck charms/keepsakes - do you give power to your personal objects?
  • Why we gorge food
  • Having empathy for people you haven’t met
  • The separatism between nature and man
  • Looking at the global community
  • Cutting large books in half for ease of transport
