Show Notes

The Book Interrupted women begin their first conversation on their Series 6 book choice: “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” by Yuval Noah Harari. Each member expresses individually how they feel either before reading or beginning to read “Sapiens”, then they continue the discussion into a group chat. Through the topics of cooperation, tacky gifts, book cutting, collectivism in an individualist culture, and raising children not to be a-holes, they talk about their lives, inspired by the words of Yuval Harari.
