The Title is All

San Harris---sounds like the guy at the local pro shop. In this case, it is Professor, one who draws on neuroscience, philosophy, history and our commonality as human beings to formulate an argument that we do not need "Holy" books, Scripture or religious testimony to form a framework for moral living. Reading this is not a romp through the comic pages, nor is it a titanic struggle with Nietzschian prose. Harris' ideas and writing are accessible, but not shallow; strongly stated but not antagonistic.
Best read with bookmarks, so one can check the End Notes as ones goes. I read it straight through, and found the Notes almost as valuable as the text, but I had to refer back to the text often to grasp the full intent of the Notes.
Refreshing, honest, direct: a great companion to Dawkins and Dennett, or a delightful introduction to science based morality for those who have only experienced Faith anchored holiness.
