“ Sam Harris reminds us that awakening does not depend on religious belief. With his usual probing clarity, Sam points out the rational methodology for exploring the nature of consciousness. ”
Joseph Goldstein, author of 'Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Awakening' and 'One Dharma'
“ So entirely of this moment, so keenly in touch with the growing number ... who are willing to say that they do not find the succor they crave, or a truth that makes sense to them, in organized religion. ”
Frank Bruni, New York Times
“ Sam Harris ranks as my favourite sceptic, bar none. In Waking Up he gives us a clear-headed, no-holds-barred look at the spiritual supermarket, calling out what amounts to junk food and showing us where real nutrition can be found. Anyone who realizes the value of a spiritual life will find much to savour here – and those who see no value in it will find much to reflect on. ”
Daniel Goleman, Author of 'Emotional Intelligence' and 'Focus'
“ Harris shows how our egos are illusions [and] how abandoning this illusion can wake us up to a richer life, more connected to everything around us. ”
Jerry Coyne, Professor of Biology at the University of Chicago
“ Waking Up is an extraordinary book ... It will shake up your most fundamental beliefs about everyday experience, and it just might change your life. ”
Paul Bloom, Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Science at Yale University
