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.

    "Essential listening (open mind required)"

    I really enjoyed the author narrating his own work.

    Very brave to voice his opinion on such a volatile subject with so many fanatics intent on destroying all non believers. Excellent research and delivered in a style accessible to all.

    Absolutely essential to all with an open mind. Shame so many are closed.....

    "Listened to several times"

    He's preaching to the choir with me, but he is relentlessly entertaining and interesting: so much so I've listened to this 3 times.

    "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.

    "Clever bloke."

    I'm starting to feel better about the thought of not existing forever. A lot to research from here.

    "Brilliant the man was a genuine genius"


    Well worth a read. The sheer range of vernacular and a statement of true humanity for all believers to take in then they will learn something worthwhile. Richard Dawkins next although there are many more.

    "A must read or listen."

    Punctures the puffed up self important claims of the worlds religions, with his usual wit and erudition. Christopher Hitchens will be sadly missed.

    "Good listen, but..."

    I love the content, but couldn't help being annoyed by Hitch's quick changes of voice volume. I realise he was a great speaker, but in this format and listened to with earphones, it's irritating and forces me to constantly change volume.

    "A must read for the fight against ignorance..."

    Hitchens takes all of the garbled half arguments you have rolling around your brain and clarifies them in to beautifully formed bullet points with which to dismantle any wide eyed fanatics confused logic. His formidable intellect is impossible to argue with. An excellent book, superbly read.

    "Difficult to understand"

    I found Mr Hitchens diction really hard to understand. Low voice, talking quickly and merging of words meant that I probably didn't catch about a quarter of what was said. Language was not for the less educated as I couldn't understand some words that I did make out! Sorry. Was a real struggle.
