Yuval Noah Harari (b. 1967) is a historian, professor, philosopher, and best-selling author of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind (2014), Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow (2016), and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century (2018). His books have collectively sold more than 19 Million copies worldwide. Professor Harari is a vegan and practices meditation for two hours daily. He claims that meditation provides him with the necessary “focus, peace and insight” required to finish his books.
On turning vegan, Professor Harari writes that, “While writing ‘Sapiens, I became familiar with how we treat animals in the meat and dairy industries and was so horrified that I didn’t want to be a part of it anymore.”
