Most of the books which I have read used to have direct application meaning I could apply whatever I read from the book my daily life and also write about it. In Sapiens things are much different, I am reading stuff that has happened 20,000 years ago. The author has described people with many different cultures who roamed the world thousands of years ago. It’s a kind of fun to read about and there is a lot to learn about the humankind in general but none of that stuff is shareable in a way that other people can learn from and apply it (like other books).
In that sense, “Sapiens” is a very different from the books which I have read earlier and I have very less to share on day to day basis. Right now the author is explaining why giants like mammoths and other animals in Australian megafauna vanished from the earth’s surface and how “we” became the new masters of the land. It’s a great story which we already know (thanks to our geography classes in high schools) but what the author is doing here is sharing the minute details of those incidents.
