Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"[Shermer's] book is unusually useful, but perhaps for a reason the author did not intend. It sheds unique light on the interior life of a well-informed atheist today, and may foreshadow a new spirit of amity and mutual inquiry."

Michael Novak, Washington Post, 2/13/00

Review:

"Perhaps only someone with [Shermer's] background could have written such a penetrating analysis of the state of religious belief in our society today."

Lucy Horwitz, Boston Book Review, December 1999

Book Description: Henry Holt Company Inc, United States, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd edition. 216 x 127 mm. Brand New Book. A new edition covering the latest scientific research on how the brain makes us believers or skeptics Recent polls report that 96 percent of Americans believe in God, and 73 percent believe that angels regularly visit Earth. Why is this? Why, despite the rise of science, technology, and secular education, are people turning to religion in greater numbers than ever before? Why do people believe in God at all? These provocative questions lie at the heart of How We Believe , an illuminating study of God, faith, and religion. Bestselling author Michael Shermer offers fresh and often startling insights into age-old questions, including how and why humans put their faith in a higher power, even in the face of scientific skepticism. Shermer has updated the book to explore the latest research and theories of psychiatrists, neuroscientists, epidemiologists, and philosophers, as well as the role of faith in our increasingly diverse modern world. Whether believers or nonbelievers, we are all driven by the need to understand the universe and our place in it. How We Believe is a brilliant scientific tour of this ancient and mysterious desire.
