I occasionally get books sent to me in hopes of a review, I guess, and more often than not they don’t interest me. But I check anyway! This was probably the fastest nope yet; I flipped it over, and the first blurb on the back cover was from…Michael Shermer. On that grounds alone, I’d throw it away, but his blurb was hilarious.
[The] best book I’ve read on [this topic].
The brackets aren’t mine! They actually had to butcher his quote that much to get something they could use!
Then, further down, the Washington Monthly blurbs,
…explaining the now well-documented psychological, biological, and genetic differences between liberals and conservatives with reference to human evolution…
That’s from Chris Mooney, who ought to know better.
Well. All I can say is that my genetics won’t allow me to read this crap, and right now I’m praying for a speciation event.
