Currently reading: Humankind

I'm about halfway through reading Humankind: A Hopeful History by Rutger Bregman. So far it's been a really insightful read, and it's one of the few books that I've read lately where I can say I've learnt a lot. I want to say I wish that this is a book everyone would read, but I'll wait until I've actually finished the book before I actually say that.

It's not a quick read, coming in at about 480 pages, but it covers a lot and is written in very accessible language. So far it has focused on a lot of scientific studies and debunking ones that try to show that humans are selfish by nature. I'm hoping the second half of the book will be looking at some really actionable advice for the future.

I also enjoyed Bregman's 2017 book Utopia for Realists, but it hasn't had the same perspective-shifting impact on me as Humankind has had so far.
