'A brilliant, mind-altering book' - Guardian

'One of the most important books I've read - not just this year, but ever' - Bill Gates

'Will change the way you see the world ... Pinker's powerful ideas, vivid stories and sparkling prose make this hard to put down' - Daily Mail

'Masterly, a supremely important book' - The New York Times

'Riveting and myth-destroying' - New Statesman
