's review

it was amazing

An enlightening polemic.
After reading religious books like Talmud, Holy Bible, Holy Q'uran, Dhammapada, Bhagavad Gita and others I came to adore these beautifully written books (mostly literature wise). They have so many beautiful ideas in them and some are awfully grotesque.
Hence, I don't see anyhow they have to be a standard of morality or goodness.
Therefore, I disavow all equally and don't choose any one side.
If there is a God s/he won't be very bothered with what we do or crave our worship/reverence in every moment. But s/he will want us to be just and happy to see his creation in harmony (IF only s/he has designed the creation, personally this idea is very hard to adhere)
This book challenges the mind and establishes the notion that, "A healthy rationale mind is one, which is capable to constitute two opposing thoughts and think about them without being unhappy".
Worth a read even for staunch devotees.
I revere Dawkin's thoughts and arguments in the book but there is still room for mysticism and I love that fact it has not gone.
Though honestly now I am more inclined towards atheist position than before I picked up the book.
