Summary

In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris' 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.  

Complete and unabridged edition, narrated by the author.

Excellent

Everyone should read this book and do so with an open mind. In the unlikely even of this happening, the world would surely be a better place.

not the best narrator

The book is OK, the author is evidently well informed. The narration lets it down though, and hr does sound very similar to his brother Peter. This is unfortunate as Peter Hitchens is an insufferable twat.
