Publisher's Summary

What is a religion? Why are people religious? Are religious people more educated than nonreligious people? Are religious people more moral, more humble, or happier? Are religious people more or less prejudiced than nonreligious people? Is religion good for your health? Are people becoming more or less religious?

Studying religion as a social phenomenon, Ryan T. Cragun follows the scientific data to provide answers to these and other questions. At times irreverent, but always engaging and illuminating, What You Don't Know about Religion (but Should) is for all those who have ever wondered whether religion helps or hurts society - or questioned what the future holds for religion.

    "Basically review"

    The only "issue" I had was that I knew most of the information,I expected to be surprised or really learn something. But for those not like myself this is a great book to add to a "starter kit" when question religion

    "Sssssssibilance!"

    I couldn't adjust the equalizer in any way to eliminate the grating hisses of every "s"
    It was unfortunately oppressive.

    "Well done"

    I enjoyed the content and pace. The perspective was also refreshing. I will be looking for more titles from this author.

    "Learned A Lot"

    There was very little I disagreed with in this book in terms of the reasoning and opinion. The statistics were informative and have already proven useful in discussions with religious people. I liked the author's full disclosure of biases. Definitely recommend.

    "Might be a somewhat dry subject, but..."

    It is a very personal book and had, for me, a new perspective on religion. Ryan's social science perspective gave me a more humble view on people believing in the superstitious... ;)

    Ryan, with his personal style and humour is also funny listen to.
