Although atheists will love this book, it's clear from the final chapter, Into the Clear Air, that Lee is really trying to reach believers who struggle with doubt. If you are one of those folks, this book will show you an alternative based in reality. You owe it to yourself to read this book.
This book appears to be based on many of the online essays previously published on the author's Ebon Musings pages, though obviously expanded for this edition.
I've always admired the clarity of Adam's writing on these topics. He shares Sam Harris' knack for making points effectively without descending into the rabbit-hole of too much philosophical terminology.
To the theist considering reading this book I would offer the following advice: Adam's tone can be quite angry and, while I believe he is justified, I can also appreciate that this might make it more of a struggle to get through the early chapters. Try not to take this personally as there are important points to be made and they are being made here as well as anywhere. Perhaps start with the last Chapter and then go back and read the rest.
Knocking off a star for some technical issues: Though the book has a table of contents, the Kindle doesn't recognise it as such. Also, the footnotes are not hyperlinks, which is very annoying.
I am an Ex-Management consultant from India, am running 75 and for the past 60 years I am an atheist. Reading this book reinforced some of my earlier convictions and also has given me enough reasons to be proud of my non-theistic leaning.
While all the ten chapters are written beautifully, My favorites were ch.1 on 'Fossil Fuels', ch.5 on 'The cosmic shell Game', Ch.6 on 'Life w/o superstition', & ch.9 on 'Stardust'. I am expecting a sequel to this from this author.
