We sure miss Hitchens. My wife and I had the great pleasure of hearing him speak in Toronto about the time he discovered he had cancer. He was a delightful speaker, and this is the book that rattled a few cages. You can still find his debates and interviews on many podcasts. Another reason I love the iTunes store.

Hitchens is an entertaining writer. He's at his best when he's insulting people, which makes the chapters on Mormonism and Islam in this book fun reading.

One problem is that, those two examples aside, this book is redundant with Dawkins' superior title on the same subject.

The second problem is one he shares with Dawkins -- his insistance that the evil done by people in the name of religion is the fault of religion, while the good done by the religious would have been done by them even without religion. Thus, even after they've convinced us that religion is intellectually wrong and historically a source of evil, they lack credibility when arguing that religion, in the here and now, does more harm then good.… (mais)

He uses lots of big words and presupposes more knowledge of the subject than I have. Lots of great info (read ammo) May have to reread to get more to stick.
