    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris' recent best-seller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos.

    Overall

    Christopher Hitchens not only wrote an insightful look into organized religion, he also did it in a style remenisant of Douglas Adams. Maybe it's his English accent or a sense of humor born in the English school and state religious system.

    Regardless, I disagree with the negative comments in previous reviews. Hitchens' main point is that "religion poisons everything". He makes great points and backs them up with unassailable arguments. A few of the reviewers complain about the audio quality, maybe they need new earphones or need to download the program again. The audio on my copy is excellent and his reading of the book is done with clarity,style and humor.

    I'm not an atheist; I'm just not convinced that any religion has the complete story. Mr Hitchens points brought my religious inclinations into clear focus and his experiences with events and news-makers validate his points.

    This is one of the best non-fiction books I've purchased from Audible. The only problem is that now I feel compelled to buy a hard copy so that I can use it for notes and reference especially if I find myself compelled to believe in one of the "revealed religions". He words can bring me back to reality.
