I reviewed "The Number Sense" at length here awhile back, which you may or may not be aware of. Why can't you see that it is essentially the same strategy as "Chariots of the Gods"? You pick a popular hypothesis, seek out some pseudo proof, a rat, a monkey, a pigeon, put it together and sell some books. Bravo to the entrepreneurial spirit, but not science.
Note: Surely you have read "Chariots of the Gods"? If not, find a copy and read it. Then tell me why Dehaene's book is different.
