We review the bestseller, Homo deus and then the Chemistry World team discusses their favourite books of 2016

 

Homo deus

Yuval Noah Harari likes the big topics. His last book, Sapiens attempted to explain everything that has happened in the history of humanity. In his latest book he examines everything that will happen in humanity’s future. In part 1 of the podcast, hear the views of the Chemistry World team and those of our special guest, Stephen Cave, executive director of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence.

In part 2, the Chemistry World team discuss their favourite books of the year and touch topics ranging from how to maximise your chance of finding your dream partner to the drug addiction of the Nazis.

You can read our review of Homo deus here, and find all our book reviews here.

We want to include you, the Chemistry World  reader, in the conversation so join us next month when we’ll be discussing The secret life of fat by Sylvia Tara. Tweet your thoughts to @ChemistryWorld, or use the hashtag #BookClubCW and we’ll endeavour to include your opinions (or questions) on the podcast.
