Yes, because I think it encourages people to consider a new perspective that they may not have had access to.
The comparisons that are made.
At first, I found his speaking style alitle hard to follow, but by the time I reached the second or third chapter, I was accustomed to it and it became clear without having to rewind and re listen.One thing I appreciated was that he wrote the book to be accessible to more people by opting for more common words instead of long, uncommon ones... I only had to pause the book maybe 3 times to look up a word.
FREE WILL... You may beleive in it, but you may not have a choice.
The possible new perspective is well worth the relatively low price of the book.
Great book... But although I love Christopher Hitchens, I feel he is best either read, or listened to in a live format, and did not make a very easily followed narrator...
I would definitely recommend the paper version of the book. But I found the audiobook hard to follow at times.
I think the combination of his accent, the way he words things, and the fact that he was reading from a script made the experience a bit unnatural feeling for me. I think Christopher Hitchens is best listened to in his debates and interviews, or by actually reading his books.
There were some interesting historical accounts.
Sure, it was entertaining enough.
The different ancient myths presented and how the author interprets them is very entertaining, but anecdotal.
No I haven't, so I can't compare, but I didn't find the performance by any means bad. The way he accentuates and draws out the ends of certain words I could see being an annoyance to some people though.
Maybe to consider the possibility of his claims, but it has to be taken with a grain of salt until more evidence is presented.
Interesting perspective nonetheless.
Religion is irrational
I loved the switch between male and female voices, it keeps you interested and engaged. while with other books the monotone narrator can sometimes cause your to drift off, Dawkins and Wards voices are varying and compelling.
I have, and as with the others, this one is excellent.
This book helped me to take many arguments that I already had, and turn them into much more eloquent ones.
Science is the best tool we currently have to discern reality.
