Review

An elegant, sharp-minded essay on the need to study religion in a dispassionate way. ("The Economist")

Penetrating . . . a sharp synthesis of a library of evolutionary, anthropological and psychological research on the origin and spread of religion. ("Scientific American")

Rich and rewarding . . . the main business of the book is to give a scientific account of how religion may have developed among creatures such as us. . . . The product of an extremely bright mind. ("San Francisco Chronicle")

How would a visitor from Mars dispassionately explain human religion? . . . My guess is that the result would be something like this crystal-clear, constantly engaging, and enjoyable new book. (Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize?winning author of "Guns, Germs, and Steel" and "Collapse"

Ambitious . . . an accessible account of what might be called the natural history of religion. (The New Yorker)
