Okay But Not Great
This book is very well written therefore the 3 star rating. However, as a firm believer and critical thinker, this book was a disappointment. As 75 reviews have already been submitted I certainly will not go into detail except to say that the author needs to remember the phase "confirmation bias".Was this review helpful?

Unlike his journalism background, he did a very poor job of gathering information and reporting on the six questions or problems he started with. First off, he chooses very agenda-laden and biased scholars and (surprisingly) stopped there for all of his answers. Additionally, he did dig nearly deep enough with his questioning. If Larry King was the interviewer, these would be the types of softballs he would toss. I expect much better for $14.95.
I also was a little put off by having to read how many books each author had in his personal library as if an active Amazon account equates to brilliance.
Still, it was fun to read and well written. Buyer beware that there is no meat served at this meal.
