About this item

From the bestselling author of Waking Up and The End of Faith, an adaptation of his wildly popular, often controversial podcast"Civilization rests on a series of successful conversations." -- Sam Harris Sam Harris -- neuroscientist, philosopher, and bestselling author -- has been exploring some of the most important questions about the human mind, society, and current events on his podcast, Making Sense. With over one million downloads per episode, these discussions have clearly hit a nerve, frequently walking a tightrope where either host or guest -- and sometimes both -- lose their footing, but always in search of a greater understanding of the world in which we live. For Harris, honest conversation, no matter how difficult or controversial, represents the only path to moral and intellectual progress.
