Very good, no doubt, but after all the hype, a little underwhelming, I felt. And frankly a bit too boring. I really think in this school of authors, Hitchens is more readable and generally better while I get a lot more out of Dan Barker even. Still, a good work. Read full review

Worst book I've read. Don't bother buying. His view on God is pathetic

The Truth About Religion
Dawkins gives some sound and logical reasons as to why the world functions quite nicely without the presence of a supernatural overseer. I particularly like the praying
