I thought this book was a great read; Dr. Price's views are fair, well communicated and well argued. It is a fascinating look on how the arguments on many modern Christian apologists, don't hold up when you examine them with sufficient scrutiny.
This is not to say that this is an anti-religious book. At many points Dr. Price will praise the works, of even conservative Christian scholars, who have made valuable academic contributions.
One thing to note is this book does dive pretty deep into biblical studies. If you're new to the subject, you may find some sections quite difficult. But, if you already have familiarity with the subject, or are willing to occasionally pause the book and do a quick google search, you should get a lot out of it.
The narration was also great, in fact I'd like to hear Dr. Price narrate other books (even other peoples) as he has a wonderful speaking voice.

I like the detail that Price goes into to critique Strobel's arguments. That was, and is, what I was looking for. The gratuitous comments about their lack of scholarly character, their personal and philosophical interchangeability, and the similarity of their arguments to those of college evangelists add nothing, and tarnish the arguments by appearing too personally invested in denigrating Strobel and his ilk.
Price's legitimate critiques would probably better be read with a good Bible at hand for reference than listened to on a daily bus commute.

Thoroughly entertaining scholarly rebuttal to some apologist guff you most definitely do not need to read to get a lot out of this book. Dr. Price is brilliant and funny. Until more audiobooks are available, search out the Bible Geek podcast.
