When I picked up Bertand Russell's "THE PROBLEMS OF PHILOSOPHY" I was very impressed. It gave me a comprehensive overview of basic questions of philosphy that was very accessible for the beginner such as myself. But I must say that I thought "BERTRAND RUSSELL ON GOD AND RELIGION" was a disappointment. It almost seemed too simplistic and his tone was almost indignant at times. The best section of the book was the preface. Other than those twenty or so pages, the book seemed over-generalized and self-serving. More thoughful books for agnostics and atheists deserve your money.
