On the other hand, if his audience is other skeptics, while it is a fine diversion for a few hours, there probably isn't much here that informed skeptics don't already know. To be sure, if I hadn't already watched his video on the information added in the evolution of bacteria that eat nylon, then that would probably be new information to me. But since I already had, that was not new to me.
He says that the book uses Creationist arguments against them. And, true, he does. But the book is primarily a rebuttal to one specific Creationist article. Now, to be sure, the arguments in that article are common arguments, but, I would have liked to have seen him use more different sources of Creationist arguments.
Now, he does have at the back of the book a few appendixes, including a list of common Creationist arguments. Which isn't bad. But, talkorigins rebuttals to Creationist arguments is more complete, and easily accessed online.
So, its a nice, easy read for a few hours diversion. And if you haven't seen many of Shane's videos or other similar sources, maybe you might find some new information. But if you are reasonably versed already in the skeptical point of view, you may find it "old news" for the most part.
