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".

The author thoroughly reviews religion throughout this book. He has an extensive knowlege of the Christian beliefs and Bible, as he continously "judges" Catholics, and quotes scripture directly out of the King James Version to use against them. The author continues these assaults throughout the book against the Christian, Jewish and any faith that believes in God... The author has a smart approach, but seriously for a person of no faith he quotes scripture way too much. His knowledge of the bible is impressive and is equal to most priest and ministers alike. His loathing of Faith is apparent. Yes, I am of Christian faith, I am not Catholic, I am a Lutheran.

Collins presents a 'mental diet' of 10 negative attitudes to lose during times of hardship that hinder character development, strain relationships with others, and diminish faith.

This book will inspire you to be the best person you can be. Ace teaches you be example how important it is to be grateful, not bitter. Ace you are my hero. Thank you for allowing me to let go of the angst that poisoned me. This book is a true blessing.

  • Third World America

  • How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream

America's middle class, the driver of so much of our economic success and political stability, is rapidly disappearing, forcing us to confront the fear that we are slipping as a nation - that our children and grandchildren will enjoy fewer opportunities and face a lower standard of living than we did. It's the dark flipside of the American Dream - an American Nightmare of our own making.

Arianna gives an all too acurate account of what the politicians have done to OUR nation with OUR money. This book is one everyone should take the time to read or listen to (check the facts, her accounts are the truth). Having knowledge is the first step, taking action is our only chance.

This book is a must read!
