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.

    For the already de-converted, this book serves as an ego-stroking and highly entertaining source of information. For the religion weary, this book serves to open your eyes to new paths of thinking. For the devout, this book serves to enrage you. There is one constant however no matter your perspective going in: this book will make you think. The wordsmith *the by now infamous/brilliant Christopher Hitchens (depending on your world view) * takes no prisoners as he thoroughly eviscerates religious thought and demonstrates how it does indeed poison everything.
