Format: Audible Audio Edition
The primary reason I've given this a two star rating is not for the science presented. From what I know already of cognitive science Barrett presents the basics quite well. My problem was with the unsupportable efforts he made to give

I bought the Audible version of this book so I can't flip through pages and site specific examples by page or chapter, but early on Barrett rejects the idea that we should only believe things for which we have proof by treating it as an absolute and inflexible bar against believing anything, and goes on at the end of a later chapter to assert at great length that we can't reject beliefs in gods simply because they come from unconsidered assumptions and have no discernible basis in reality. He put the burden of evidence on proving that gods don't exist rather than waiting for any evidence to believe, even after detailing the flawed automatic assumptions that can lead to belief that some god or other supernatural agents exist. Towards the end of the book too, he holds forth on the likelihood of evolution based on his own personal incredulity. That was the part where I simply turned off the audio book. Maybe he backs down from attacking science with strong evidence in favor of someone's *feeling* that a god must exist but he had already thoroughly undermined his own credibility.
