The Brief History of Humanity is a wonderful book, and the book of human history, which has been changed from this book, is popular all over the world. It discusses a series of interesting topics from the cognitive revolution, the agricultural revolution to the scientific revolution. Explain how humans are on the world stage and become the spirit of all things. We used to be an unremarkable ethnic group in the African corner. The ecological influence on the earth is almost the same as that of fireflies, orangutans or jellyfish. Why can we climb to the top of the biological chain and become the master of the earth. . . Some of the ideas inside are not only novel, but also ruined. * "It will say gossip" is actually a super weapon that allows Homo sapiens species to crush other species. * "Agricultural Revolution" Perhaps the biggest scam in history. Humans have not domesticated wheat, but wheat has domesticated humans? * The strength of the European Empire is to recognize your ignorance and trust in the future. * Are we happy? What is the root of happiness? . . . . This is a grand brief history, a small one, allowing humans to re-examine themselves.
