I thought the concept was interesting and the first chapter grabbed me but it was downhill from there. There was way too much telling what was going to be told later in the book and referring back to early examples. Lots of gory details about things that disgust people. I didn't think the narrator had a very interesting voice either. I wanted to finish it but finally decided to cut my losses.
An interesting expose on how the human brain is naturally predisposed to sense a spiritual element in reality. This book is not simply one very long argument. It is filled with the results of research from various connected scientific fields. It is not difficult to follow and understand the information presented. It is a well written book where the explanation and ideas presented flow smoothly and easily from each page to the reader's mind. The author is an atheist and you may not agree with his non-G-d position or the theory he presents along with an interesting array of scientific evidence. However, almost everyone should be able to relate to a number of the ideas presented herein through personal experience with them. If you have raised or have spent a lot of time with children you will find that you share another common area of experience that is consistent with the author's information. This does not mean that you will end up coming to or agreeing with the author's conclusions, after all this is still a theory and not necessarily a scientific fact. There are many places throughout the book where the author states his belief about what is going on minus any evidentiary support. Nonetheless, I found the book interesting and written in a manner that comfortably holds the reader's or listener's, as the case may be attention. The narration continues to be consistently excellent and even superb. It contributed substantially to making this book a very good experience.
