Title: The God Delusion
Author: Richard Dawkins
Genre: Non-Fiction, Religion/Atheism
Stars: **** (4)
Summary: Richard Dawkins’ arguments regarding the existence of God and the role of religion in our society from the point of view of an atheist and biologist.
Review: With books such as these, controversial/religious(or non-), the audience for whom it is written needs to be taken into account. Richard Dawkins is a spectacular biologist. This book is very well written, his arguments are (mostly) solid as well as the research he presents to support his arguments. However, he also has the ability to sound condescending, stuck up (my intellect beats your stupidity kind), and sometimes a bit derogatory to women (regarding feminism in particular). If you are already an atheist or somewhere in the vicinity of agnostic/thinking-about-it/seriously-que
That said, as much as I sometimes resented his tone of voice (and I am an atheist), I think this book is filled with information and intelligence that will help any atheist/agnostic/thinking-about-it/serio
Keep in mind, I came to my atheism through my own devices (and some internet research) and this is the first book I have ever read regarding atheism. I’ll revisit in a few years and see if my opinion remains the same, but until then any remarks here should be taken as coming from a novice reader.
