I remember arguing about the truth of moral principles in my first year of a philosophy degree and being left floundering. Studying ethics to one degree or another over the following three years turned me into a moral relativist and I too have towed the line ever since even though I believe in being a moral person. This book and it's simple argument against relativism is exactly what we need. It is plainly obvious that if we take morality as a human construct to help us treat each other better then we can make true and false claims about it and verify when one attempt fails and another succeeds. This is a tremendous book by one of the most cogent thinkers of our time.

A very interesting and timely book. Like all great ideas this one is not without its controversy. It's interesting to note that fifty years ago the central thesis of this book would have been obviously true most people, but its a sign of the times that this case needs to be stated now. Despite some popular portrayals of Sam Harris, I find him to be a very fair and deep thinker, who always presents his arguments thoughtfully. He does not however mince his words, and parts of this book make for slightly uneasy reading, but what is a good book if it does not challenge us. If I were to find fault with the writing I would just say that the prose seems to occasionally drifting into obtuse tangents, seemingly being unable to resist jumping on one of his many hobby horses every now and again. Great read though and should be compulsory reading for anyone who may be seduced by the ideas of post-modernism.

A well structured and reasoned argument for the integration of scientific insight into truths about human well-being. Unfortunately did not proceed further to address some of the research undertaken and it’s implication. A focus on that would have provided the book with more utility

Perhaps it is just that I am thick, but found this hard going, perhaps my lack of university education was an obstacle, but find Stenger, Dawkins, and Dennett much more straightforward; even Bertrand Russell got to the point of an argument quicker!

Sam Harris id proposing a new moral landscape based on scientific principles rather than the religious ones that have failed the world since the dawn of civilisation. It is impossible to prove a counter argument until it has been tried, but many of his ideas are great.

Fantastic book with wide ranging implications. A thrilling critique of cultural relativism and brilliantly highlights role Science can play in improving society. Not merely by improving technology but by providing the basis to our morals. A MUST READ!

I chose to read this book as I have watched u-tube videos and read 'Lying' and 'Free Will' and don't fail to be amazed at the simplicity and intellegence of his writing. I can only hope that his philosophy will spread in the course of time. This book is on my kindle and the only problem is the kindle only indicates the percentage of the book you have read and I would like to see clearly where I'm up to in page numbers. I would certainly recommend reading Mr Harris's works to my friends.
