SapiensYuval Noah Harari

Random House, £6.99

Humans are the most advanced and destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us so successful? This Sunday Times Best Seller, described by our judges as "a remarkable tour de force, with a very narrative strand", looks at humankind's extraordinary history – from the Stone Age to the Silicon Age. Historian Yuval Noah Harari begins around 70,000 years ago, when our species of the genus Homo overcame others and never looked back. Harari is able to use both biology, anthropology, history and economics to explore the biggest questions about our species – including what fate awaits us in the future.
