A fascinating and readable book, and one of the best books on the subject of why everyone sometimes believes weird things. * Fortean Times * A fun and thought-provoking read ... you will find something here to challenge the way you see yourself and others. * BBC Focus magazine * Marvelous ... chock full of real-world examples reinforced by experimental research, Hood builds a theoretical model to explain how the mind comes to sense that there is something beyond the natural world, something supernatural .... This book is an important contribution to the psychological literature that is revealing the actuality of our very irrational human nature. -- Michael Shermer * Science * SuperSense is sensational. The book is that rare combination of scientifically powerful yet accessible to the non-expert. A delightfully witty and thought-provoking look at what makes us human. * Susan A. Gelman, Professor of Psychology, University of Michigan * Reading SuperSense is like having lunch with your favourite professor - the conversation spans religion, biology, psychology, philosophy, and early childhood development. One thing is for sure, you'll never see the world in the same way again. * Ori Brafman, New York Times bestselling author of Sway. * SuperSense is a terrifically fun read. * Marc Hauser, Harvard College Professor, author of Moral Minds. * A fascinating cornucopia of weird and strange stories and incidents that combine to present both a physiological and psychological case for the human instinct to need to believe. I would thoroughly recommend this book. * Stephen Woolley producer of How To Lose Friends and Alienate People. * An intriguing look at a feature of the human mind that is subtle in its operation but profound in its consequences. * Steven Pinker *
