Review: The World Until Yesterday

Best chapter - in which religion was divided into functions: diffusing anxiety, providing comfort about pain and death, providing a code of behaviour, facilitating political obedience, etc.

Extremism and irrationality made more sense when presented as refusal to live in the bleak light of secularism, which has no intention of supplying effective replacements.
