About book: I appreciate books advocating a secular life but not so much this one. He is a rationalist who appears not to appreciate anything that does not conform to his rationalist thinking. I think his ideas do not fit with recent information released by brain scientists. Studies testing rationalists suggest that even they do not make decisions primarily based on rational thinking -- they just think they do. One of the most interesting things for me was learning about how the author has applied these motivated-interviewing techniques to working with diabetes patients - That, I want to read a book about. Maybe a future work? I would be happy to help with that research.Despite the agitprop title, I was attracted to this book post de facto for its robust attack on relativism and was not disappointed. Also, the guy lives in Portland, hey. I am personally not so interested in converting anyone (need I say it), but rather, curious about others' epistemological foundations. Still, everyone should be more rigorous when it comes to determining 'what is true' and sort out any kind of harmful beliefs.
