Steven Pinker is Harvard College Professor and Johnstone Family Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University.
"Pinker has a knack for making the profound seem obvious....A fascinating bag of evolutionary insights." -- The Economist "Alters completely the way one thinks about thinking...its unforeseen consequences probably can't be contained by a book." -- Christopher Lehmann-Haupt - New York Times "Witty popular science that you enjoy reading for the writing as well as for the science. No other science writer makes me laugh so much." -- Mark Ridley - New York Times Book Review "Hugely entertaining...always sparkling and provoking." -- Wall Street Journal "Big, brash, and a lot of fun." -- Time "Undeniably brilliant." -- Newsday
