In this explosive new book, Sam Harris tears down the wall between scientific facts and human values, arguing that most people are simply mistaken about the relationship between morality and the rest of human knowledge. Harris urges us to think about morality in terms of human and animal well-being, viewing the experiences of conscious creatures as peaks and valleys on a "moral landscape".

This book has a vary strong arguments about morality. unfortunately it is dry so getting through it can be hard. that being said the information is incredibly important and help shape how I see the world.
