Publisher's Summary

Christopher Hitchens, hailed as "one of the most brilliant journalists of our time" (London Observer), takes on his biggest subject yet - the dangerous role of religion in the world. In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris's recent best-seller, 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 the heavens are 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.

Hitchens is great

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