Yes! I'm just about 100 pages in. So far an interesting read, though Wright does make a few assumptions with little or no justification. But that's evolutionary psychology for you. Specifically that morality exists because of religion, and that morality follows religion in progress. I think a brief look at the 20th century provides plenty of evidence to the contrary. Or consider our animal cousins that seem to have a basic rule to social order. Granted he does back down from it a little after the chiefdom section, but I don't think the origin of morality is as tied to near human culture, especially religion, as he seems to suggest. Like I said, so far a very interesting and engaging read.
