Don't expect this book to be same as Sapiens

Homo Deus: Brief History of Tomorrow
I expected this book to be similar to “Sapiens: Brief History of Humankind” which was a fantastic book but I was wrong, this book is a mess. It says on the title “Brief History of Tomorrow” but all it talks is about the present and not enough about the future.
This book mainly focuses on knowing what is happening right now, what is going to happen and how to live in the future world. I am not joking but over 60% of information was unnecessary for me which made me ask myself “should I stop reading this book?” I noticed that this book is too informative and not enough opinion from the author.
“Sapiens” talked about widely through human emotions to technological evolution but in Homo Deus, most of the chapters are about technology and I was tired of that.
I totally prefer buying “Sapiens” rather than this awful book and if you are willing to buy the book I recommend in the book rather than ebook and audible.
I am not saying that this book is the worst for everyone, it just didn’t fit in my type of book that I like and I would prefer this book to a person who wants to learn about the present technology behind the life we live in. I also recommend this book for a young reader who needs to realise how future life is going to be tough and uneasy.
Although it has many problems with this book, there are some important message and lesson within.
