In the fascinating and groundbreaking new work, "Everyone Agrees", J.S.B. Morse uncovers clues to these riddles and reveals how disagreements are merely the result of a difference in perspective of a shared "mountain of truth." Using entertaining examples from both scientific literature and pop culture, Morse breaks down the popular "us-against-them" and morally relative mentalities, proving that everyone really does agree, even when it comes to such hot-button issues as politics, religion, and the NFL's best quarterback.
"Everyone Agrees" offers an introduction to the theory of concurrence, a unique take on human behavior which places logic (or simple common sense) at the heart of a universal morality. With the same accessible style and penetrating insight found in Morse's first two books, "The Evolution Diet" and "How To Take Advantage of the People Who Are Trying to Take Advantage of You", "Everyone Agrees" provides an entirely new perspective on perspective itself.

I Also Recommend:
Morse does an incredible job in Everyone Agrees by completely turning come of the modern conventions in conversation on their head. For example- when two people disagree, it's not because they're really disagreeing- it's because they aren't communicating (either they're applying two deffinitions to one word or two words to one definiteion).
He goes into some interesting examples to prove his point that we all really agree- most noteably the breast exposure of Janet Jackson versus Renaissance paintings and a fun description of the Socratic method (which can be used to see that there is one truth).
This book is awesome- I can't wait to read it again
