21 Lessons for the 21st Century

How can we survive in a future full of challenges?

Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book: 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.

According to statistics from the Internet Data Center (IDC), the amount of data generated globally in the year 2008 was zero point four nine zettabytes (ZB). If we assume that a book has 200,000 words, that amounts to an equivalent of fourteen hundred trillion books, which can fill two hundred and eighty thousand libraries. By 2011, the amount of data had increased by two point seven times, which equals to an average increase of 250,000 libraries per year.

Fortunately, artificial intelligence (AI) can process a great amount of data, and allows us to enjoy the technological advancement it brings to our lives. However, when we benefit from technology, have we ever thought about the possibility of AI taking our jobs, accessing our data, and even making decisions for us? When it comes to this point, how will we survive?

The book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Harari discusses this exact question. Not only does it take a historical perspective, but it also covers a wide range of knowledge areas: biology, sociology, psychology, philosophy, and religion. The author believes that individuals can have a direct influence on the world.

Known as the young geek, Yuval Noah Harari is a historian who obtained his doctoral degree from the University of Oxford. Besides this book, he has published another two global bestsellers, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind and Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, completing his trilogy.

Unlike the other two books, the one we are going to discuss today is more instructive. It focuses more on the challenges people are facing at the present moment. It gained enormous popularity and wide attention around the world since it was published, and has so far been authorized for publication in over twenty countries.

This book has selected twenty-one significant topics on the solutions relevant to the future of humans. This Bookey will divide them into three main parts.

Part One talks about the challenges the information explosion era poses to human beings;

Part Two is about how individuals can find the truth;

Part Three looks at how individuals can prepare for the future.

  • Love the app. Using for almost a year daily, had no issues. One thing that's a little annoying is not being able to increase the font size (while menu option is there). The message suggests flipping the device but I didn't find this way convenient so I'm hoping that this feature will be there at some point, hopefully soon :)

  • I don't use it much besides read my book and search for a passage I want to re read. Wish we could highlight certain parts of the book in order to be able to get back to it later. Besides that it's a great app!
