SAM HARRIS HAS A NEW BOOK ….”WAKING UP: A GUIDE TO SPIRITUALITY WITHOUT RELIGION…AND YOU CAN HELP LAUNCH IT…
Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion.
Not everyone will buy Sam Harris’ new book, Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion, but know that IF you are planning to do so, you can help it come to the attention of many more readers by pre-ordering it today at Amazon, Barnes&Noble, or your local independent bookstore. Timing is important because the first week’s sales of a book often determine its future (by affecting how many copies bookstores order, whether it appears on best seller lists, etc.). All pre-orders count as first-week sales, and these are the best sales to have. My copy has been ordered as well as one for Tyler.
You can listen, or read, the first chapter of the book here… which is on his website. You’ll find it very informative, interesting and well worth the time it takes to absorb the first chapter.
I highly recommend another book of his…The Moral Landscape.
For the millions of Americans who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris’s new book is a guide to meditation as a rational spiritual practice informed by neuroscience and psychology.
“From multiple New York Times bestselling author, neuroscientist, and “new atheist” Sam Harris, Waking Up is for the 30 percent of Americans who follow no religion, but who suspect that Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history could not have all been epileptics, schizophrenics, or frauds. Throughout the book, Harris argues that there are important truths to be found in the experiences of such contemplatives—and, therefore, that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow.
Waking Up is part seeker’s memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris—a scientist, philosopher, and famous skeptic—could write it.”
