Product Description

Product Description

Three of the most provocative and thought-provoking works of the great Christopher Hitchens, now available in one volume.

god Is Not Great

This provocative international bestseller is the ultimate case against religion. In a series of acute readings of the major religious texts, Christopher Hitchens demonstrates the ways in which religion is man-made, dangerously sexually repressive and distorts the very origins of the cosmos. Above all, Hitchens argues that the concept of an omniscient God has profoundly damaged humanity, and proposes that the world might be a great deal better off without 'him'.


The hilarious and provocative bestselling memoirs of our greatest contrarian are by turns, moving and funny, charming and infuriating, enraging and inspiring. It is an indispensable companion to the life and thought of our pre-eminent political writer.


For forty years, Christopher Hitchens was at the epicentre of the battle of letters in Britain & America. Throughout his life he shone the light of reason and truth into the eyes of charlatans and hucksters, exposing falsehood and decrying hypocrisy wherever he found it. Arguably collects Hitchens' writing on politics, literature and religion when he was at the zenith of his career.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous and entertaining read 14 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is three books in one volume and am still only halfway through the second book so am unable to comment on the full volume.
Being a martyr is about dying for what you believe in, not about killing yourself and deliberately murdering others in the process! Surely this is not what religion is about or intended for? Control, indoctrination and murder!
I like the way Christopher Hitchens writes, honest and direct. I l love how he clearly points out how all religions are all man-made, and they are. How the birth of Jesus was arranged and staged to fit in with an age old ritualistic prophesy and how Christianity was created many years after his death.
I found this book to be honest, exciting and refreshing. Although an atheist, Hitchens does not mock or ridicule the various religions around, even having several friends who are devout in their beliefs. I only wish he was still alive today as he would be one of those extremely interesting and entertaining people you'd love to invite to a dinner party

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitchens: the World is a poorer place without him 29 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recall seeing Christopher Hitchens on TV and in the short air-time anyone gets to debate anything he did come across as opinionated and a shade outrageous but having read this collection of wonderful books I cannot believe there are many if any writers who are so well read and in a position to speak so authoritatively. Maybe I am influenced by a shared admiration for George Orwell but I cannot wait to read all of his other works. The man was a genius of his time and a great loss to mankind. He cuts through the myths and fables of religion and his essays are a delight to read on a wide range of issues, writers and politicians and reviews books about them which normally I wouldn't read. Despite his criticisms of others and their works he does seem to have enjoyed life and not become a depressed old bore like so many writers. Reading this makes you wonder why so many stupid people are voted into power and how the populations are so ignorant themselves to be taken in and led by politicians and religious leaders whose only real interest is personal power. maybe that is me being cynical? If you want to be stimulated buy these and begin to think for your self.

Typical Hitch. Big words that us mere mortals don't understand, a critic of everyone on the planet (even himself) no matter how 'good', over-powering and opinionated etc etc.
There is no doubting the intelligence and conviction of this man. But, even a devout atheist, such as myself, will struggle in parts. It's difficult to understand his experiences if you haven't been there. Obviously well travelled and been in, and seen, some horrific things that would send a lesser mortal insane. But beware, this is not an easy read. Hitch uses his experience and knowledge of human nature to put his point across. Not to mention his command of the English language, which unfortunately, goes beyond the understanding of people like me who have a decent level of intelligence. This is the difference between Hitch and someone like Dawkins. Dawkins uses absolute scientific proof to get his point across whereas Hitch uses reason, experience and writing skills. I have yet to find a writer that drops in the middle and uses 'good plain English' to explain the futility, danger and downright stupidity of religion.
