A very misleading book, as the author could not differentiate between religious extremism and the religion. Moreover, he completely ignores contributions of the religions to human civilisation.

Christopher Hitchens's pugilistic style is unlikely to be to everyone's taste. However, the book has its own superbly unique literary quality. And thus it is very different from the works by other non-theists. You can't fail to get the sense that Hitchens deeply cares about reducing the suffering caused by nonsensical beliefs. This being said, his work, in places, is rather superficial and sometimes wholly misses the spiritual point behind certain ideas (e.g. 'There but for the grace of God go I.') Nonetheless, anyone appreciative of literature will find this a valuable contribution to the discourse surrounding religion. Last but not least, to hear this book in Hitchens's own voice really is a pure delight.

An intelligent and thought provoking book. Well read by Hitchens himself, if a little quickly in places. Worth listening to more than once.
