I've read and enjoyed plenty of non-fiction on the existence (or otherwise) of God, but this is much more fun. This book had me laughing and crying in between all the thinking and learning. If Cass Seltzer is the atheist with a soul, Rebecca Newberger Goldstein is an atheist mensh.
I found this book dreary and dull and I say that as an Atheist, who has no axe to grind. I had hoped a new vogue of atheist inspired fiction would be so much better, but instead we're given characters that no one outside of Havard Faculty could even begin recognise or identify with. - way to alienate the mass market!
A grey sludge of soppy sentimentalist crap sprinkled with over intellectualised dialogue. Not even Steven Pinker's cameo at the end can make it worth your while.

This is a witty and deeply intelligent book. Often hilariuos and with a broad intellectual range. A background in philosophy is helpful; not for the narrow-minded!
Oliver Wyman adopts just the right tone, and gives an excellent performance.
