did not like it

The entire book is built on stereotypes, right down to the all-too-narrow definition of the word "God," which Dawkins draws exclusively from creationist theology. Mis-defining your subject to give yourself the appearance of a comprehensive victory-- that's the straw man fallacy in a nutshell. For a project like this one really ought to do more research than googling some creationist websites, but Dawkins' response to any remotely complex work of theology or epistemology boils down to "tl;dr."

I felt obligated to read this, but boy oh boy was it tedious. At least Bertrand Russell was a good writer.
