The End of Faith: Religion, Terror & the Future of Reason by Sam Harris
The End of Faith: Religion, Terror & the Future of Reason

altruistpartners, March 21, 2013

Sam Harris is brilliant. He is only for the brave and stout.

Those who hold dear to comforting illusions will be horrified. The constitutionally less than robust will be made anxious. Provincial thinkers will be immediately offended.

On top of this, his prose style is smashing. Just as tight and forceful as anything written before him.

This is a hugely under-rated, under-recognized book, precisely because it smashes the illusions held by the majority. A heroic effort to educate humanity.
