This book has the good things and bad things of Dennett books: Lines of reasoning are a bit too long (may be because he is a professional philosopher) and shows some aversion to reaching conclusions. On the other hand, the reasoning is very robust and the prose is very well written.
After devoting a few chapters to explaining what should we study religion scientifically, no really *new* arguments against religion or explanations why religion exists are given.
The suggestion that we should teach our children *all* religions seems too naive to come from Dennett, but it is indeed in the book!.
Nevertheless, as is always the case with this author, the book is worth the reading.
