Finished reading: The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity by David Graeber and David Wengrow 📚

This book is worth reading, as are the critiques of it, especially the responses by Chris Knight, Nancy Lindisfarne, and Jonathan Neale. I would not waste your time with any reviews penned by employees of the American Enterprise Institute.

I’m glad I finished this book and found it worth engaging with. Graeber and Wengrow present a much more hopeful view of humanity than the other popular titles in the Big Histories genre they are in argument with, including “Sapiens” and “Guns, Germs and Steel”.
