Some books take you for a sucker. Home Deus is one of them books. I’m halfway through and it’s so far been 200 pages of entree, served on a thicker paper and larger print, before the meat and potatoes. Now I bought this book because I was after some clear futurist insights, which it has somewhat delivered on, but I’m speed reading through it to get to the better stuff. See, it spends so much time explaining the necessity of looking to the past to get an idea of what’s coming over the horizon and then analysing past events with the skill of a commercial blogger, which just, yeah, I’m just not liking that part of it. I guess these types of books come along every now and again. There’s something frazzled with ’em.
