There are complete paragraphs in this book I've memorized, because this book is able to put into words those ideas and beliefs I've always had but have never been able to articulate with any substantial strength or conviction. The book basically is a tutorial on debunking the ridiculous, the metaphysical, the belief systems of unproveable hocus-pocus. It does so in a way that is both unintentionally humorous, while at the same time quite empowering. It's a perfect book for agnostics or aethiests, myself being the former. It's also a great book for practicioners of stoicism and/or cynicism, again myself being the former.
My whole life I'd been looking for a book exactly like this. I feel more well-rounded for reading it. And again, I believe like me, if you purchase this book and are of liberal mind, you will refer to it time and again.
