Unlike Susan Jacoby's "Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism" where she provides a chronological review of the separation of church and state laws and Founding Fathers' writings, Rob Boston outlines the myths presented by anti-separationists and the support to debunk these myths. Mr. Boston takes a less confrontational approach to separation of church and state and goes on to explain that religious liberty is can only be obtained by government not supporting one religion over another.

Not exactly a page turner, though one wouldn't properly expect it to be, but very well written and organized. The author's position is clearly stated and supported throughout and avoids becoming mired in nit-picky details. Though most likely targeted toward better informing those that agree with his thesis, the book isn't so hostile to the opposition as to be useless in swaying opinion.
