Read in January, 2008

I was disappointed in this book, although I understand others have loved it. The only reason I gave the book 2 stars was because I thought the writer was a good writer. His arguments seemed old and elementary, while the overall feel of the book felt like it belonged on political talk radio. I thought that objectivity was lacking and that the author concluded that human behaviors are responsible for legitimizing any god. By using extreme examples, I think his arguments felt shallow and obnoxious. I know others have found Dawkins book more insightful, and I would really hope this is true.
