a valuable read, although dated in parts, for those who beginning to understand that different types of sales require different skill sets.
its tough to follow along with hitchens doing the reading as his speaking style works better if you can watch him as he talks. that being said, the work is solid and the arguments sound. not as accessible as dawkins' "god delusion", but strikes more to the core of the danger inherent in the irrational holding power.
as i creep closer to 'retirement' age, i see illustrated for me the flaws in 48 years of thinking, acting and expectations. i am going through the book again. and again.
brilliant. at a bare minimum, it should be part of a curriculum for anyone who aspires to teach. or to learn.
granted, i downloaded the book because it was free and i had nothing to lose, but it was simply stellar and possibly the best book i have 'read' this year. subtle, wry, dry and honest. i haven't been this pleasantly surprised by a book, or writing style, since i first encountered terry pratchett. i found it to be grand entertainment and only wish that there was more of this author to enjoy.
