    "Being a fairly religious person, I do not think this book would be for me. I am not knocking the writer by any means at all and I am sure it's very persuasive and professionally edited, but I just do not feel it would be something I would want to read. "

    "Who is Sam Harris? The book s/he recommends is a good book and is very interesting, but where does Sam Harris make this recommendation? Note: there is a youtube video entitled "Sam Harris On Stoicism". Maybe that is where Sam Harris recommends this book, since Marcus Aurelius wrote "Meditations" and is known for his Stoic philosophy. Whether or not this book is a "best recommended book by Sam Harris" is up in the air, since someone would have to know of all the recommendations ever made by Sam Harris."

    "This book offered a very different point of view of how evolution can be explained. It also addresses the nature versus nurture question of evolution and how people become who they are. This book takes the side of the gene determining evolution and not the individual - a new and refreshing approach to genetic study."
