Review by: Elf32 on July 13, 2012 :
Great book about the most problematic things modern society seems to silently accept as unchangeable. The tone seems a bit rough at first, but she justifies it with facts.

Also a detailed collection of links to the current atheist/humanist/scepticist movements in the internet.

A must for every wannabe atheist as well as for critical religious followers.

Excellent summing up of the reasons why religion is harmful and that it doesn't just harm the non-believers. The author goes into depth on some of the issues that the faithful, for some reason, nominally accept the unacceptable in any other context.

A good book for believers and non-believers alike.

Enjoyed it a lot. Great reference for atheists who often find themselves debating religious people who insist there is no harm in religion. The author is also very 'real' which I think comes through in her writing style making the book even more enjoyable while it educates. Anyone who reads it is likely to come away with some information or a perspective which is new to them.

Review by: Tim Westcott on May 12, 2012 :
An interesting and thoughtful book. I would recommend it to non-religious people, and more importantly to any religious people trying to understand the way that many non-believers think.

Review by: Pete731 on April 04, 2012 :
Good book. Goes much deeper into atheism and free thought than just a list of anger causing issues. In fact most of the book is spent patiently exploring common objections and arguments in relation to this subject. Formatting is good, and the writing clever and engaging. I would recommended this book to anyone, of any faith or none.
