A review on the nature versus nurture debate. This book was like preaching to the choir for me so it was easy to enjoy. I believe that Mr. Pinker has laid out a strong argument against the Blank Slate, Noble Savage and Ghost in the Machine theories. If you believe in them then this book probably own't convince you. If you don't know the debate and are intellectually curious about it then this is a good book to read.

Very boring...
Pinker is not a neuroscientist and uses far too many words to describe simple ideas that neuroscience can explain in a far clearer way.
Just read the first chapter and close the book.
