Not a book to prove God.
If you are an aethiestic or theistic fanatic, you probably won't like this book (although I'd love you to prove me wrong!)
The approach of the book is mainly to counter the scientifically heretical assertions coming out of the fadish new atheist camp. Those assertions belie anti-religious sentiments which have been packaged and sold as scientifically validated truths.
If you want to understand why the new atheist arguments smell, I think you'll love this book.
If you trust science but also want to believe we are more than thinking meat stumbling around a cold meaningless unforgiving world, and feel snobbish atheism creeping in to leave room for little else, then I suspect you'll find this book is a Godsend.
I loved many aspects of this book... But I think the biggest surprise for me is the elevated perspective Amir walked me through of many of the areas I thought I already had a handle on. I thoroughly enjoyed the anthropologic story of religious evolution and the survey of mathematics, science, and history. So much fun food to chew on!

I have heard Dr. Aczel speak. too bad he was unable to voice the book himself. I found the argumenst fair and well supported. he is not dogmatic in any way. i would vigorously recomend this book to any who are interested in science. well done!
