Recommended for: Everyone
Read in January, 2006

Dennett is a proud atheist, and he does not back away from his convictions. He is able to singlehandedly defeat many Christian conventions that have become acceptable to our modern American society through the use of pure, philosophic logic that works well to break us all out of the spell in which we have been living all of our lives as members of a "Christian Nation" (to quote Sam Harris). He use of example and parable makes the book invaluable to anyone who wants a new way of loking at the convention of religion in general, as long as you get through it without becoming offended (which I did, because I believe his thought processes to be both sound and beautiful).
