Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins 'Darwin's Rottweiler' for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky. Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes. He critiques God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign but still illogical Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being.

These are just some of the questions considered in an internationally acclaimed masterpiece by one of the world's greatest thinkers.
Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky. The best thing about the story is that it shatters the shackles of being controlled by other people, not because there is some judgmental thing watch. Dawkins argues against religion and never looses one's interest. Articulated I was a bit skeptical at first as I thought it would be a bible bashing book but found it well articulated with relevant anecdotes.
