Publisher's Summary

What is a religion? Why are people religious? Are religious people more educated than nonreligious people? Are religious people more moral, more humble, or happier? Are religious people more or less prejudiced than nonreligious people? Is religion good for your health? Are people becoming more or less religious?
Studying religion as a social phenomenon, Ryan T. Cragun follows the scientific data to provide answers to these and other questions. At times irreverent, but always engaging and illuminating, What You Don't Know about Religion (but Should) is for all those who have ever wondered whether religion helps or hurts society - or questioned what the future holds for religion.

Basically review

The only "issue" I had was that I knew most of the information,I expected to be surprised or really learn something. But for those not like myself this is a great book to add to a "starter kit" when question religion

Might be a somewhat dry subject, but...

It is a very personal book and had, for me, a new perspective on religion. Ryan's social science perspective gave me a more humble view on people believing in the superstitious... ;)

Ryan, with his personal style and humour is also funny listen to.

I expected a whole lot more

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really. I found many of the arguments provided hollow.

What could Ryan T. Cragun have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Someone else should have read it.

Was What You Don't Know about Religion (but Should) worth the listening time?

No
