By A Customer on February 13, 1997
Format: Hardcover
Mr. Smith is one author who knows how to do his homework. He captures the wit, charisma, and sheer magnetisim, of a great man to little know in our day. In a time where the Religious Right attempts to make the United States a "Christian Nation". And uses threats of hell on those who does not bend to their whims. He tells us of the man who freed millions of minds, and to make God into a honest man. He makes one appreciate the glories of the past and the promises of the future. This book is a must read for anyone with questions about the world and man's place in it

Format: Hardcover
Ingersoll was evidently a speaker the likes of which are extremely rare. While I've read his writings, all of the newspaper reports claim you can't even begin to get a feel of what it was like to be there from his written words. He was an extremely influential person in the late 19th century but because of his religious non-belief, he has been left out of his proper place in history.

This is an very well written biography and you get enough snippets of his speeches to understand what a unusual person he was for his day. His ideas on women, race, social justice, etc. may be rather mainstream today, but they certainly were not back then.

Recommended.

A very thorough narrative of Ingersoll's life and works from beginning to end, invaluable for the serious secular humanist interested in our intellectual heritage. But it was arguably too long and repetitive, if not exhausting at times.
