I'd been looking forward to this for a while. I thought, wow a book about the history of people throughout the ages to whom the idea of an all powerful deity is a little off. Instead what you get is a lot of name-dropping, quotes, often our of context, and a very badly put together inconsequential narrative. I would advise even the most rabid atheist to avoid this book at all costs (and it isn't cheap!). An awful book best avoided.
