• Take a tour through the latest and most amazing research in child psychology and come back with a better understanding of the strange things adults do. Bloom shows us how a first rate scientist integrates conflicting findings, broad scholarship and deep humanity to draw a nuanced and often surprising portrait of human nature, with all its beauty, horror and hope.

    Jonathan Haidt, author of The Happiness Hypothesis
  • Just Babies is exactly the combination of penetrating insight, cutting-edge science, and elegant prose that readers have come to expect from one of psychology's best writers and sharpest minds.

    Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness
  • In Just Babies, Paul Bloom provides a wonderful, in-depth look at how our morality develops from infancy onward, making the strong case for the subtle interplay of genes and environment in the way we turn out - a must for social science enthusiasts and parents.

    Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational
  • The Origins of Good and Evil is an ambitious subtitle, but this book earns it. Paul Bloom combines graceful, witty writing with intellectual rigour to produce a compelling account of how and why people are so wonderful and so horrible.

    Robert Wright, author of The Moral Animal
  • Bloom, ever brisk and authoritative, generally focuses on how things are rather than on how developmental psychology might inform philosophy
