Graeber's Dawn of Humanity and absolutely blown away by it.

@Inkdir what do you make of it?

I'm a third of the way through, up to women experimenting with grasses. I loved reading Graeber's Debt: The First 5000 Years, but I feel this blows my mind even more. I also like how he bashes on Hariri 😆

@myrmidex i don't really know Hariri. So far i like their perspectives, prose, and purpose. I'm only just past chapter 2 but i found the stuff of first nations people and enlightenment encounters pretty riveting

@Inkdir ahh yes, for me it was great to learn the history behind the term noble savage

@vindarel it really is. I had some notion of early history from Debt: The First 5000 Years but Dawn of Everything really turns all my notions upside down. I love when that happens :D
