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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

An entertaining read. While it is not a particularly insightful work of atheistic philosophy, it does point out general views of atheists towards religion (specifically Abrahamic religions). It is definitely worht the money and the time it would take to go through it. My favourite quote:
"Imagine some Nazi scientist telling Hitler that Aryans, Jews, Poles and Blacks all had common ancestors who originated in Africa. I am sure that would have gone over like a lead swastika balloon."
That just cracked me up!
Well done GM Jackson, loved your other short essay, "The Jesus Delusion".

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.
