2.0 out of 5 stars Inadequate, 6 July 2011
I bought this book with the hope of gaining some insight into the reasons why we humans believe the things we do. Unfortunately, this book did not meet that expectation. As Wolpert is a scientist, I also expected him to offer a well-rounded body of evidence for his arguments, but he does not. Each chapter introduces several topics, in such a brief manner that you find yourself wondering what you learned at the end of a chapter. The scientific support for his arguments is weak and the writing is rather chaotic and unorganized. This book may spark your interest in certain topics, but certainly doesn't quench the thirst for knowledge. All in all, I finished the book because I hate leaving books unfinished, but not because I enjoyed reading it.
