3.0 out of 5 stars Brief and to the point, then goes off a bit., 28 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book uses internal arguments from religion, with their own inconsistencies, to let religion disprove itself. This may not be original but is the book is succinct.
In actual fact believers are not usually mad. The ones I know are, however, to varying degrees a bit touched. Truly mad people cannot hold down jobs and whilst they may drive their children mad cannot indoctrinate them with, for example, schizophrenia. Nevertheless it is all nonsense.
The later chapters are taken up with political correctness and terrorism which are separate issues. After 7/7 British politicians were anxious not to inflame matters because terrorists always want to raise the stakes. That is a trap, you do not jump in to it. Most Moslems in the world, including Britain ignore the gruesome bits of the Koran and are a bit touched but not mad.
Terrorists flourish when there is a population behind them who will not phone the police. A few counter atrocities, Bloody Sunday for example, and they won't. After Omagh, or 7/7 they do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye to a Great Man. Adios Compadre., 16 July 2003
This review is from: Las Flores De La Vida (Audio CD)
This review is biased; written on the day Compay Segundo's obituary is front-page news. Not bad for someone who spent more than 85 years in such relative obscurity. What clinches this as the great album is Compay's version of "Guantanamera". This Cuban classic of early revolution can be pedestrian (any Filipino band in a Far East Hotel), prissy (sorry Armanda and the kids) or sanctimonious (well, Pete Seeger obviously). With Compay it is just the most fun and typically with Compay remains subversive . Someone who lived, and lusted, that long should have taken better care of himself. Hasta luego.
