©2007 Christopher Hitchens; (P)2007 Hachette Audio
"The best of the recent rash of atheist manifestos." (Publishers Weekly)
"Effortlessly witty and entertaining as well as utterly rational." (Booklist)
As a conservative Christian who has been questioning just about everything in my life the past year or two, Hitchens book has given me so many things to think about. I love how he makes very concise points, and doesn't use doublespeak and evasion to get around tough questions. I might have to listen to this one again…
Even after hearing dozens of speeches and debates from Hitchens I was still pleasantly surprised with new information in nearly every paragraph. This book is a cornerstone of any worthwhile collection on atheism.
Yes, since the author narrates his own work, you can hear the words as they are intended to be read
This will definitely piss off religious people. Lots of good facts here, and good sound logic practically seeps out of this book. It's unfortunate the author is no longer with us as we won't get gems like this anymore.
The Late Christopher Hitchens goes to great lengths in providing reasons in why Religion has caused misery in its pursuit to organise the masses.
Recommended to all that would like a critical approach to Religion and its social implications on the world around us.
Ironically, god is Not Great reminded me of Frank Turek's "I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist", albeit Hitch argues from the opposite side. There is an abundance of evidence as to why we should have great doubts about and anger toward religion.
Mr. Hitchens's performance captured his delivery and intelligence that is so noticeable in speeches and interviews he gave over the years.
This is a book that may make you think, infuriate you, cause you to doubt long held beliefs, or applaud at a great intellectual who has done so much for the secular movement.
god is not Great does an excellent job of detailing Christopher Hitchens's thoughts on religion around the world and the damage it has done to the societies of our planet throughout history.
