The Secular Mind is a selection of our very informal book group. I eagerly opened and began to read it. I never did fathom what he was getting at. His sentences were so turgid and convoluted and cluttered with parenthetical insertions that he had to be read with an index card to slide down the page and a pencil to try to underline the subject. I found his reports of conversations with such a Anna Freud, whom he persisted in calling, 'Miss Freud,' almost incomprehensible. What was the point of all the Middlemarch blathering? What indeed was his point? In reading the review posted at BN I was relieved to see that I am not alone in my opinions of his writing style and his reasoning. I doubt if the people who praised this book persisted in reading it to the poorly reasoned end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
