User reviews about the book
Sam is one of the few authors who I can't get enough of.
A lucid, insightful, persuasive, and much needed discourse on the subject of morality. I found this book thoroughly enjoyable.
This is a much needed conversation, 'bout time.
There is no doubting this man's qualifications. At once you realize he is a brilliant scholar. What evolves, though, is his passion and sense of humanity. This book is not anti God, it's pro humanity. Far more accessible than Hawkings, less histrionic than Hitchens. Sam is one of the most compelling authors today. An important read.
A Voice of Reason
Finally someone with the guts to say what I have believed for so long. Yes, we CAN tell some people their values and morals are wrong.

Pure hubris is nothing new.
Sam Harris at his best. Brilliant. A page turner.
Sam Harris assumes role as our generation's voice of reason.
By Michael Laughlin
Sam Harris aims his focus at the most important issue facing humanity today and delivers a product great philosophers of antiquity and our american founders could have agreed upon. His solution consist of establishing an universal, secular, and thus ecumenical standard for assessing objective moral truth. An important and engrossing read, "The Moral Landscape" provides a nonthreatening perspective on morality that any open minded individual or society can embrace.
The most important book to come along in 2000 years
By Jason Hutchcraft
As strong and solid an argument as can be made- worth every penny and then some.
Still chasing big foot..

Ever watch a TV program discussing possible Alien sightings, only to find out at the end of the program, you've wasted 30 minutes, and they never had anything to base any conclusions to begin with? Don't do that again here! More wasted time. Somebody has a beef with God, and I'm not subsidizing it. Watch the author's interview on comedy central, where this book belongs.
Science by definition cannot determine morality.
