    This book reminds me of Albert Einstein adage "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." The style and content is distinct from other popular writers of the God debate such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris. I think it's more accessible, direct, succinct, and linear.

    Mr. Brain boldly claims one can PROVE something is imaginary. He introduces the tools and process employed to do so ... and the foibles that derail our thinking. He provides real-world examples applying the tools. Then he employs them to lay bare with stark reality "How God Works". He closes with assessing/recommending how "waking up in the real world" impacts our ethics, meaning, and significance.
