Do yourself a favor and skip the Dawkins and Harris; they're smug, turgid, and boring, with all the human feeling of a tax return. Read Hitchens instead... A tendentious delight, a caustic and even brilliant book... Thank God for Christopher Hitchens. -- Mark Warren * Esquire * Dazzling... A campaign to put this glittering anti-theist tract on the national curriculum for "religious education" should begin here. -- Johann Hari * Independent * Hitchens is a grand rhetorician, and his double-barrelled shotgun of a book is high entertainment... As with Voltaire, his scornful laughter is a powerful weapon. -- Christopher Hart * Sunday Times * The anti-religion case has never been put so well, so comprehensively or so definitively as in this razor-sharp book... Hitchens accumulates a devastating case... Outstanding. -- A.C. Grayling * Independent on Sunday * Christopher Hitchens is a master craftsman of argument... God is not Great is undoubtedly the most boisterously entertaining contribution to the [atheism] debate. -- Siobhan Murphy * Metro * God is not Great is easily the most brilliant and fascinating contemplation upon the role of religion in human society in recent times, the Das Kapital of a tolerant, if exasperated, atheism. -- Kevin Myers * Irish Independent * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
<b>The provocative bestseller from Britain's foremost controversial thinker is now in paperback: 'If Hitchens didn't exist, we wouldn't be able to invent him.' Ian McEwan</b> --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

This is by no means an easy read, but it is a good one nonetheless. Essential reading for the serious athiest, and for people of religion too, as it is a very commonsense approach to the subject. A second reading would be worth the effort.

A challenging book to get through, but a powerful polemic nonetheless. A book anyone interested in the debate about religion and religious belief should consider having in their library. I suggest watching a few Hitchen's debates on YouTube to supplement this book, to study the sorts of arguments being contested in the discourse between believers and none believers (plus Hitchens is a superb public speaker).

Amazon.com had this book on sale, so I decided to check it out. Pathetic to say the least.I always tell people religion is not the problem, human beings are.Read more
This is my bible. Hitchens certainly speaks my kind of language. Religion, and by connection, the invisible, imagined entity some put their faith in, is laid bare by the great...Read more
A brilliant read. Learned more about why religion is bad for humanity, why people follow it, etc. One thing I did not like about the book is the sophisticated vocab made me keep...Read more
Gave up after about 100 pages. Lost interest as it seems to be more academic than I expected.
