Did Muhammad Exist? by Robert Spencer
Rate this book
Clear rating
I only read the first 1/3 of the book, so don't pay too much attention to my rating or this review. The book isn't bad, and evidently the early history of Islam (including even the Qur'an) is less clear than I thought. However, my concern is that the...more

The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book is readable and entertaining, and as far as I am qualified to say, also accurate. It takes us through a number of different portrayals of sociopaths, starting with the scariest picture and then ending with the more prosaic and "ordinary" so...more

Why Does the World Exist? by Jim Holt

This is a good and philosophically literate review of attempts to come to grips with the very existence of the world. It's a philosophical travelogue -- the author goes around interviewing famous people who might have some insight into the question....more

This was a quite romantic novel about a pair of supernatural beings. But the novel does not involve "romance" in the ordinary meaning of the term (about sexual relationships), except rather indirectly. It almost generates the same kind of anticipatio...more

The Invention of the Jewish People by Shlomo Sand
Rate this book
Clear rating
Many people think of today's Jews as descendants from ancient Israelites, in fact I probably vaguely believed in this myself for a long time, without thinking about it. This book attacks this idea in detail. If someone had said, "you know, a lot of J...more

Did Jesus Exist? by Bart D. Ehrman
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a convincing and mostly successful argument that Jesus did, in fact, exist. The idea of the mythical Jesus is alive, well, and actually growing among many secular humanists. The “mythicist” point of view is that there was never such a person...more
