User Review  - scottcholstad -

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

“Science can chip away at agnosticism, in a way that Huxley bent over backwards to deny for the special of God. I am arguing that, notwithstanding the polite abstinence of Huxley, Gould and many ... Read full review

An excellent book with tons of common sense examples of why there is no God looking over Us and observing our every thought and action. After reading his book you learn your actual place in this wild ... Read full review

Some of it is quite baffling, but essentially got me 'over the line' completely with atheism. A worthy read, even if you are a believer; if nothing else Dawkins and other scientists bang the 'evidence ... Read full review

Unfortunately Dawkins taints an otherwise good book with much (perhaps deserved) hatred of the Catholic church (in particular). One doesn't come away with the feeling that Dawkins is the unbiased scientific thinker that he may otherwise want to portray himself as. Read full review

The God Delusion is an excellent book. Comparable in quality to Hitchens's "God Is Not Great". Both authors make the obvious point that the chances of the biblical god actually being real are about zero. Hitch does a great job of totally skewering those that believe in these centuries old fairytales, which makes for some entertaining reading. Dawkin's and Hitchens's books are must-read by both believers and those with a healthy grasp on reality. I've read several books by Dawkins and viewed several of his lectures on youtube. If there's a smarter, more rational thinker alive today, I've not yet found him.
