This might sound like one for the Politics and Religion section, but the author is not talking about the validity
of anyone's religious or political views, but rather he examines the motivations
behind people who display a fanatical devotion to a particular point of view, regardless of what that point of view may be. It has helped me immensely, as I by nature am a true believer myself. 196 pages in print.
