A let down of biblical proportions,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Is Christianity Good for the World? (Paperback)
While this book is on a subject that I find interesting it is unfortunate that it fails to live up to the expectations I had of it. Christopher Hitchens has, in general, written several thought provoking articles and books on the existence or non-existence of God and, as such, I was surprised to read this and find it filled with the sort of poorly thought through arguments that plague the theological discussions of 13 year old children. Throughout reading the book I had to occasionally put it down in surprise that both authors had put forward points that could so easily be torn to shreds by anybody with a rudimentary knowledge of the subject matter. On the plus side my annoyance was short lived as this "book" can be read in around an hour or less due to it's extremely short length. It is really more of a pamphlet than a book and certainly not worth the ridiculous asking price of £4.51. The price is especially criminal when you consider that many books which are far it's superior in both length and quality are of a similar price.
Over-all I would definitely not recommend buying this book.

A capuccino and slice of cake costs the same as this book, so I don't see the price as ridiculous given the quality (not quantity on offer). Dan Browns book are long, but would be expensive if 1p in my opinion.
