This is a book that the every neutral non-specialist should read. It is written in plain language and is quite funny in places, sometimes unintentionally. The arguments are thorough; no intellectual stone is left unturned, and I often read people's reviews on books etc. that a put off by this. Some people even suggest that this approach is alienating neutrals and the non-combatant public.

Balderdash! I don't think we can make the arguments too thorough. We are dealing with a very crafy, deceptive and dishonest counter-argument establishment. The non-rational nonsense they put up as logic is pervasive-just take a look at Canada's Prime Minister (Harper).

Readers will also possibly enjoy Tower of Babel, by Robert T. Pennock but this is a somewhat more academic read.
