Product description


"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)
