“If everybody on the planet read this book, the world would be a better place, thanks to Paul.”
Michael Shermer, author of The Believing Brain

“Well-written, readable, and carefully researched compendium of the skeptical challenge and position. . . . This is a must.”

“A practical and eloquent manual for every woman and man seeking to live a sensible life with meaning. It shows the way forward for both the individual and all of society. Writing with a gentle hand, Kurtz has presented philosophy in a manner that is interesting and digestible to all. This book will appeal to a wide variety of readers because it addresses real beliefs held by real people in the real world…. Kurtz explores many popular irrational beliefs and convincingly argues that humankind can and should do better. Readers will appreciate Kurtz’s positive and constructive tone throughout this extraordinary book. He writes not only about colossal failures of reason but also of our wonderful ability to think things through and get it right. This invaluable book offers much needed direction toward a better world for all.”
Guy P. Harrison, author of Think: Why You Should Question Everything
“A very important book … clearly written and forcefully argued.”
Journal of the American Academy of Religion
