Anyone who enjoys a bad narrator.
Does not do justice to the author's compelling ideas. Painful to listen to.
The book as a piece of literature is amazing. The narration is what prevents me from enjoying or finishing it.
One week after I purchased this book, the author decided to release his own narration of it for free on his podcast. His motivation was the overwhelmingly awful feedback he's been getting about the quality of the audiobook. So, this purchase was a frustrating waste!
started off great and never let up throughout the entirety of the book. if I could give it more stars I would.any intellectual thinker should at the least find this book intriguing.
I must agree with other reviews that the content of this book is outstanding. Incredibly stimulating and thought provoking. I wish it was Sam's voice that delivered this masterpiece.
Sam Harris presents striking blow after striking blow against the ridiculousness of believing ancient myths, their apparent sheltered position away from critical analysis, their hallowed position in society and the way in which critisism is seen as an attack on people, not ideas.
He adds to this the examples of faith run rampant and the effects of some of this fundamentalist faith onto the real world and innocent people.
Atheists might shy away from the usage of "spirituality" along side science when describing the analysis of conciousness but the reader need not be concerned, a rigorous scientific approach to any analysis is central to Harris' approach.
