5.0 out of 5 stars Classic De Botton, 26 Jan 2012
This review is from: Religion for Atheists: A non-believer's guide to the uses of religion (Hardcover)
The good thing about Kiljoy's review is that no one is going to take it seriously. The bad news is that it immediately tars with a one-star average rating a book that deserves four or five. Unlike Kiljoy, I have actually read the book in question and am happy to report it does all the things we have come to know and love in de Botton's work: the way he makes complex ideas friendly and accessible, the way he enables you to see things you've always taken for granted in a completely new, exciting and enlightening way. You may disagree with his views on religion - I don't think I'm in any rush to sign up to his new one - but with de Botton it's not the destination that matters, so much as the delightfully meandering journey in such matchlessly charming company.
