    We stand on the brink of technological advancements that could change everything we know about human life. But will this make us superhuman, as many hope, or could our drive for progress actually lead to our own destruction?
     
    Yuval Noah Harari believes it could go either way: our ever-growing scientific knowledge certainly has the potential to give us incredible, even "godlike" abilities, but in striving for this, we might come close to losing the very things that make us human. Homo Deus examines both the risks and the potential rewards of this journey and offers compelling visions of humanity's possible futures.   
     
    You will learn: 
     
    ·How technology has helped us overcome many of the obstacles that have traditionally threatened human life
     
    ·How "curing" death might be humanity's next big challenge
     
    ·How our efforts to technologically enhance our lives might render human beings obsolete.

    From the co–author of the New York Times bestseller When Elephants Weep comes a book that uses true stories backed by scientific research to explore the way young animals discover their worlds and learn how to survive. 
     How does a baby animal figure out how to get around in the world? How much of what animals know is instinctive, and how much must they learn? 
     In Becoming a Tiger, bestselling author Susan McCarthy addresses these intriguing matters, presenting fascinating and funny examples of animal behaviour in the laboratory and in the wild. McCarthy shows us how baby animals transform themselves from clueless kittens, clumsy cubs, or scrawny chicks into efficient predators, successful foragers, or deft nest–builders. From geese to mice, dolphins to orang–utans, bats to (of course) tigers, McCarthy's warm, amusing, and insightful examinations of animal life and developments provides a surprising window into the mental worlds of our fine fuzzy, furred, finned, and feathered friends. 
     oReaders will be fascinated by a close look at animal intelligence, learning, and family life.
