No. If you want a good book on the subject read Penn jillette's God No.
No, just her writings
She is spinning her politics into a religious manifesto where if you don't agree with her your wrong. She and many others (bill maher comes to mind) are trying to turn atheism from an unaffiliated lack of faith, into a collective that have the same doctrine and sheep their way through life. the very thing that turned me away from any faith, which is an us vs them outlook on life, is the object of this book.
She is condescending to the reader throughout much of the book, talking down to you because you are not nearly as enlightened as she is, and just like the forces she is writing against, she lets you know, if you don't share her ideas you are not only wrong, but stupid. She is also condescending by saying things like " I don't hate people that think differently than be, BUT...." and then uses a vast vocabulary to tell you she hates people that don't share her doctrine.
And keep in mind I am a free thinker and agree with her statements about how atheists should be taken seriously, and 2000 year old sheep herder's campfire stories should not dictate our national policies. But I don't think that someone with a different opinion is somehow a lesser person or inferior.
Its the same BS the the religious right has been feeding us for centuries just wrapped up with an angry leftist vibe, repackaged think like us and sold back to you.
I would remove the author as the narrator. The woman was unable to hide her contempt for others in her voice. She would say something that she thought was bullet proof or a huge insult on "the other side" and then make a small smug laugh and she did it throughout the whole book.
I have a saying. "Try not to argue with someone that shares the same opinion with you." Man, this book really makes that hard.
