On one side of the argument is a collection of godless academics with doctorates from the finest universities in England, France, and the United States. On the other is Irrational Atheist author Vox Day, armed with nothing more than historical and statistical facts. Presenting a compelling argument (but not for the side one might expect), Day strips away the pseudo-scientific pretentions of New Atheism with his intelligent application of logic, history, military science, political economy, and well-documented research.
This is a silly sanctimonious book
Lots of straw men fallacies and misrepresentation of the issues.

Richard Dawkins holds the Charles Simonyi Chair of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford. His books include the best-selling The Selfish Gene, The Blind Watchmaker, Climbing Mount Improbable, The Ancestor's Tale, and A Devil's Chaplain, a collection of essays. He has received the International Cosmos Prize and the Kistler Prize.
Not bad pretty good. Dawkins is always worth listening to although I don't think he was in top form on this recording
Dr. Francis Collins, head of the Human Genome Project, is one of the world's leading scientists, yet he is also a man of unshakable faith in God and scripture. Dr. Collins has resolved the dilemma that haunts everyone who believes in God and respects science. Faith in God and faith in science can be harmonious, not separately but together, combined into one worldview. For Collins, science does not conflict with the Bible, science enhances it.
horrible. This is an author who thinks he is the final authority or even the only authority on the religion science interface /divide

Recent polls report that 96-percent of Americans believe in God, and 73-percent believe that angels regularly visit Earth. Why is this? Why, despite the rise of science, technology, and secular education, are people turning to religion in greater numbers than ever before? Why do people believe in God at all?
Author is clearly brilliant. Parts of the book were inspired but other parts boring. On the whole pretty good but too short
In those first heady days of a relationship, couples can barely keep their hands off each other. But as relationships mature, sex can get pushed further and further down the list of priorities. Suddenly, instead of a passionate date you can't wait to keep, sex might start to feel like one more nagging to-do. It doesn't have to be that way. And it doesn't require quitting a job or wearing dirty clothes to reclaim the spark.
Quite a good book. Not amazing though. It missed the illustrations that were supposed to be a part of the book. It would have been good to have these as an attachment

In this hugely entertaining sequel to the New York Times best-selling memoir An Appetite for Wonder, Richard Dawkins delves deeply into his intellectual life spent kick-starting new conversations about science, culture, and religion and writing yet another of the most audacious and widely read books of the 20th century - The God Delusion.
Interesting and informative
Prof Dawkins books are all high quality and these memoirs are enjoyable and easy listening
Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....
It was a light and relaxing listen and quite entertaining too.
I can confidently recommend this book
Benjamin Daniels is angry. He is frustrated, confused, baffled and, quite frequently, very funny. He is also a GP. These are his confessions.A woman troubled by pornographic dreams about Tom Jones. An 80-year-old man who can't remember why he's come to see the doctor.
Would you try another book from Benjamin Daniels and/or Eamonn Riley?
Has Confessions of a GP turned you off from other books in this genre?
Which scene was your favorite?
Any additional comments?
this book describes an illness that i have. its a serious medical illness but the author thinks that its a joke and speaks of it derisively. i am very sorry that i bought this book, which will be funding the authors next luxury car, but more important, actually paid to hear his arrogance
