  • There will be inevitable comparisons with Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens ... If you need an evidence-based antidote to doomscrolling, here it is

    Guardian
  • A wildly ambitious attempt to do for economics what Newton, Darwin or Einstein did for their fields: develop a theory that explains almost everything ... an inspiring, readable, jargon-free and almost impossibly erudite masterwork, the boldest possible attempt to write the economic history of humanity

    Simon Kuper, New Statesman
  • Journey of Humanity... is only 300 pages long, which considering it covers thousands of years of global history... is surprisingly concise. Its breadth and ambition are reminiscent of Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs, and Steel...and Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens

    John Gapper, Financial Times
  • Unparalleled in its scope and ambition ... All readers will learn something, and many will find the book fascinating

    James Kwak, Washington Post
  • A completely brilliant and utterly original account of humanity's transit from crude beginnings to a deeply divided planet. A vastly readable insight into why our world is as it is. A book for our epoch

    Jon Snow, former presenter of Channel 4 News
  • A masterful sweep through the human odyssey, from the origin of our species to the making of the modern world, that answers the ultimate mystery: what accounts for the staggering inequality in the wealth of nations today? Exquisite, eloquent and effortlessly erudite - if you liked Sapiens, you'll love this

    Lewis Dartnell, author of Origins
  • Astounding in scope and insight, The Journey of Humanity provides a captivating and revelatory account of the deepest currents that have shaped human history, and the keys to the betterment of our species

    Nouriel Roubini, author of Crisis Economics
  • I am in awe of Oded Galor's attempts to explain inequality today as a consequence of such profound forces. A remarkable contribution to our understanding of this mammoth dilemma

    Jim O'Neill, author of The Growth Map
  • A wonderfully clear-sighted perspective on progress, past and future, which is essential to tackling today's big challenges - potentially catastrophic climate change and inequality

    Diane Coyle, former Vice Chair of the BBC Trust, author of Cogs and Monsters
  • Big Science at its best ... Galor's erudition and creativity are remarkable

    Prof. Steven N. Durlauf, University of Chicago, on Unified Growth Theory
