Dr. Harari's first major popular book is deserving of its support. He covers many aspects of history from a perspective of human and cultural adaption, and this is the distinguishing factor for this piece.
Derek Perkins is an excellent narrator, providing lots of cadence and conversational tone which keeps the listening lively and enjoyable throughout. My only quibble is that I can still hardly understand when he says Porsche, as it is nearly inaudibly different than "Persia". There were not any issues beyond that minor issue however
The story is ranked at 4 stars due to the middle chapters of the book lacking the structure of the beginning and end of the book. It's all fascinating, but especially in audio book form, it is more difficult to keep hold of the key thoughts and take-aways during the mid-sections.
