It's hard to say, because I was hoping for different material than I found, and the error is mine.
If what you want is to read elegant writing about a variety of topics - particularly reviews of other people's work - and you like the writing style of Hitchens, I imagine this would be a fantastic book, and judging from the reviews of others, my suspicions are well-founded.
But I was looking for material similar to "God is not Great" and was disappointed. Again, my error.
I am glad I listened to this book because it was cited by a couple other authors whose work I enjoyed (Apparently this book is somewhat influential). But while the central ideas and themes were very interesting, the presentation frequently was not. The author does not have Malcolm Gladwell's gift for writing, and sometimes comes across as trying too hard to be like him.
