The mathmetician's twist on trying to explain away faith is often a bit too thick. With the use of tons of mathematical terminology the average reader will be left with not a whole lot to hold on too. At times the reader may feel confused or alienated due to the lack of understanding.

Though there are some chapters that are more universal, overall there are not any new ideas offered, and seems like a rehashing of an argument against God, just saying that God is more improbable than the slow evolution of life.

Nothing new, nothing exciting, move on.
