Christopher Hitchens builds a marvelous argument of how religion does poison everything. But even if you don't agree with him, and I do, his command of language and writing craft is absolutely astounding. He could write about paint drying and it would be an edge of your seat education. Sadly, he has passed on but he left a great deal of timeless enjoyable reading on a plethora of subjects. A marvelous intellectual and first rate polemic.

Great read. Relates well with the average man. Religion has lost its ability to evolve faster than the general population.

"Synopsis" by , In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris's recent bestseller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case

against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos. With eloquent clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix.

"Synopsis" by , Hitchens takes on his biggest subject yet--the increasingly dangerous role of religion in the world. With insight and wit, he describes the ways in which religion is man-made, immoral, and repressive and argues for a new enlightenment through science and reason. (World Religions)
