DEFINITELY not worth 2 credits!

As of now, this book costs 2 credits, by the time you read this, maybe it will only be 1 credit. I was intrigued by the title and subject, and a bit skeptical.

I should've been more skeptical and I should've gone to the authors website before I made the purchase. He is a vitamin salesman and the entire basis of his book is based on science that isn't peer reviewed. Do a search for him at quackwatch.org and there is an article or two about him.

Oh, and his medical degree is from Oral Roberts University, which isn't exactly known for "science".

All that to say, the book seems to be based on thin science and suggests lots of generalities and things such as instead of drinking lots of alcohol, instead maybe try having meaningful conversation with someone. Okay.

Save your money!

  • God Is Not Great

  • How Religion Poisons Everything

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.

Audio Quality is Awful :(

I couldn't even get through this book. I regret buying it. Not because of the content, but because of the poor audio quality and poor narration. It was difficult to understand the narrator.
