This review is from: Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon (Paperback)
At its best, this book is terrific. The author manages to hit some great heights with this book, but it's just too long.
About twice as long as it needs to be, actually. He quotes endlessly from other authors, often the same ones over & over.
I'm left thinking "If they can come up with such great one-liners, maybe I should be reading their works"!
Too long, too windy, too long to build up to the punch line.
With a better editor it could have been a terrific, shorter, book.
As it is? 2 stars from me.
