GOD IS NOT GREAT - Christopher Hitchens
Hitchens pulls apart the Christian belief system and he does an excellent job. He has a major crack at all the others as well but its the Christian's he really goes for. My only complaint about the book is he does pander to the Muslims, if you are going to attack belief systems attack them all with equal gusto.
This is fantastically entertaining, history snippet after history snippet all strung together with Hitchens brilliant use of the language.
And he only goes into full " hit a fly with a sledge hammer mode" a couple of times
Even if Hitchens is wrong and there is an afterlife he will be sitting there arguing that there is nothing to support its existence while having a drink and cigarette. Love his writing.
