Editorial Reviews

Review

"Undeniably brilliant."
Newsday

"Big, brash, and a lot of fun."
Time

"Hugely entertaining…always sparkling and provoking."
Wall Street Journal

"Witty popular science that you enjoy reading for the writing as well as for the science. No other science writer makes me laugh so much."
Mark Ridley, New York Times Book Review

"Alters completely the way one thinks about thinking…its unforeseen consequences probably can't be contained by a book."
Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times

"Pinker has a knack for making the profound seem obvious....A fascinating bag of evolutionary insights."
The Economist
