The God Delusion

By Richard Dawkins

Rating: 4 stars

I really enjoyed this book. Dawkins writes in a clear, concise and very readable manner in this book that discusses religion, morality and the arguments for and against the existence of a god. I enjoyed it because he put into words ideas that I’ve found difficult to vocalise and explained concepts and thought experiments that helped me clarify my own mind. For this, I can certainly forgive him his occasional tendency to slip into smug self-satisfaction.

The major issue with this book is that it is, to use a deliciously inappropriate metaphor, preaching to the choir. The kind of people that will read the book are those that already agree with a good proportion of what Dawkins has to say and are open to the rest. Still, that didn’t stop me from enjoyed it immensely.
