The Origin of Consciousness (or Theory of Mind)

Long review of Origin Of Consciousness In The Breakdown Of The Bicameral Mind, which was a pretty important book for me in my unwinding of religion's hold on me. (Not because it is necessarily true, but because it was an explanation of how minds could evolve without the intervention of a god.)
