35 of 36 people found the following review helpful By Carol W. on Jan. 14 2006
Format: Paperback
Or should I say, "Another woman's treasure"?
I LOVED this book for precisely the same reason that the reviewer below did not -- because the book starts with the basics and provides the reader a comprehensive view of both science and theology. Perhaps the reviewer below has reached a state of omniscience, but for the rest of us mortals, I appreciated the author’s clear articulation of the issues without assuming that we were already experts in all branches of science. The whole purpose of the book can be summed up by saying that religion and science are NOT compatible, despite widespread beliefs and misinformed media stories to the contrary.
The book does indeed start at the beginning, but there is plenty of meat for any reader, regardless of his or her background. I have read perhaps a dozen books on the subject of atheism, and I personally prefer this title to any other. True, it is not so academic in tone as some other volumes, but, to me, this user-friendly style of communication is an asset rather than a liability. This book is a delight to read. I could not put it down. I especially liked the newly-added section rebutting "Intelligent Design."

Format: Paperback
Great Book. I disagree with the reviewer would claimed this book was too elementry for his liking; you should just read some insanely hard textbook. Mr. Mills essentially wrote this book as an accessible reference for atheism; not some lengthy Nitzche-like discussion. I knew some of the science information but he also brought up many points that I did not know or think of. I really enjoyed that each chapter was a work in itself; you can skip to something that sounds interesting and fill in the gaps later. The revised "Interview" chapter is very revealing and demonstrates, perhaps unknowingly, how to deal with basic asumptions a theist would test an atheist on.

Format: Hardcover
In a way, this review is superfluous because the other reviewers have really said it all. I merely want to add my voice to those who have written glowingly about this book. Mr. Mills has a fine talent as a clear and convincing author. I especially liked the scientific data included in the book in a manner that is very accessable to the layperson.
