In the spring of 2017, I got the chance to interview Professor Yuval Harari, author of Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow. This is a mind-bendingly interesting book, and I relished the chance to talk to Professor Harari. My interview was for the Q2 edition of Influence, the Chartered Institute of Public Relations magazine. Perhaps most strikingly, Harari believes that peace and quiet is the new symbol of wealth and power. He, like many of the world’s elite, does not carry a smartphone.
