Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I infer this book is self-published; no reputable publisher would have accepted it. Editing is sloppy. Punctuation is askew, which can lead to puzzlement or at minimum to distraction. For instance, after discussing the notion of good, this author writes (when summarizing the argument Sam Harris makes for the relation of "moral landscape" and science) "anyone who thinks one moral view is a good as another . . . is sadly mistaken." I think he meant "as good as another" (sloppy editing). But more importantly, in this context, he can't use the word "good" that way. He means it is as valid as another, or that it is interchangeable with another. The quality "good," meaning morally desirable, is, after all, the subject addressed in the entire book. I am not dancing on pinheads here. If he can be as muddled as this, I shudder to consider the book in its entirety. I gave up, and I certainly regret having paid any cash for this junk.

Provides an interesting response to Sam Harris. Wish it was longer, with more detail.
