5.0 out of 5 stars Good Clean Fun December 27, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
G.M. Jackson has assembled a group of short essays that good naturedly take on some of the paradoxes, preachments, and just plain silliness of theism, religion, and the Bible. His mixture of logic and playfulness demonstrate how easy it is to "roast" religion. This is an amusing read for non-believers and possibly even for believers who don't take themselves too seriously.

2.0 out of 5 stars Using other author's names in the title is pretty low September 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must admit that my disappointment with this book is my own fault. I read the title as "Blame Hitchens, Dawkins & Harris--Essays of New Atheism". In other words, a collection of essays by those authors. My bad.

The essays are sophomoric, in my opinion. For example: "There is some passage in the Bible that says, 'The children shall rise up and kill their parents,' or words to that effect. Yikes!" Would it have been so hard for him to actually find and quote the passage correctly? Is "Yikes" really the most thoughful commentary on it?

The author presents the book as saving our time and money. Don't let him patronize you. Just read Hitchens, Dawkins and Harris.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price April 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
99 cents is about what this is worth. While he makes some good points, it really does seem like an adolescent wrote it. I think there is great potential in a review of the Bible as farce, but this is not it. Got through about 25% until I just coudln't take it any longer.

1.0 out of 5 stars EVEN LESS HERE THAN MEETS THE EYE March 11, 2013
By orestes
Format:Kindle Edition
Far from being a summary of the ideas of the prominent thinkers whose names are in the title, this e-book is superficial drivel. The author appears to have little understanding of the issues he tries to write about and none at all of the views on those issues held by his heroes in the title. In short it's a rip off even if you get it free.

Instead of wasting your time with this lightweight, use your Kindle Fire browser to go to YouTube and find videos of these eminent thinkers discussing the real issues, adding Dan Dennit to the names in the title.

4.0 out of 5 stars First book I have read by G M Jackson January 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Definately makes one "think" outside of the boxes we place ourselves in. Would recommend it to those who are to set in their ideas only because others opinions and perspectives will make them better people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Engaging Read- With a Great Price May 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Spectacular and engaging, a fun read, great humorous tone in authors voice, whicH can be not just read, but heard as well. Was worth more than 99 cents. Besides the fun tone, this ebook also gets you thinking. I like that, as not many books provide such a great engaging tone while teaching you something as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amateurish at best January 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was hoping for wit and humor, unfortunately I was sadly disappointed. The book is so simple in tone, content and presentation, it could have been written as a high school essay. Moreover, it defies its own title--we may need to "blame" the author. There is nothing new in any of the arguments presented, and most are presented in a rather juvenile fashion. Reading a few Atheist Blogs and a listening to a few podcasts will provide as much, if not more information, and in a much more enjoyable manner than reading this book. The only thing preventing a one-star rating is the cost of the book (99 cents) and the potential benefit, even if ever so slight, of introducing the layperson to the bare-bones arguments against Christianity. Even then, it is almost useless because nothing is cited. No Bible verse or philosophical reference for the arguments is mentioned. If you have to bring up Godzilla in an argument to make a point, you have already lost your audience and you're dangerously close to losing the debate.

4/17/11 Update: An email prompted me to add a response to the question, "Why did I buy the book after reading the 'free sample' if it was so bad?" The answer is simple; I was hoping for more. If I could have written the book, which I could have, it does nothing to add to my understanding of the content. As I noted in the above review, it was only 99 cents so it was gamble, one that I lost.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good intro to atheism February 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many essays on all of the different "God is the almighty" philosophies. Easy to understand if your mind is open to the there is no God side of life. I enjoyed the point of view and tend to agree with most of the conclusions. I am new to atheism - always had my doubts about religion and am now studying the alternatives. This was certainly a worthy start
