Great review, thanks. The author also offers a Coursera MOOC on the book's content: https://www.coursera.org/course/humankind

Interesting! The headings look roughly the same as the book's chapter headings, and so I'm curious what the difference in content will be.

I haven't read the book, yet, but taken the MOOC. What I get from your review is that the content is probably very similar. (The first iteration of the MOOC was held while the book was about to be published, which I take as further evidence that there probably won't be much difference in content).
