    Great Book!

    This book is great. It manages to make complex philosophy understandable to even the most novice philosopher, while remaining engaging enough to satisfy even the most practiced philosopher. What I love the most about it is the shorter chapter structure. Unlike many philosophy books, the material is digested down into a number of pages at the most, allowing readers to dig into this book in manageable chunks and not become overwhelmed by the vastness of some of the subject matter. This book makes philosophy fun and easily understood without "dumbing it down". Its wonderful!

    A must read ...

    This book is a must read for anyone who ever questioned the existence (or non) of a supernatural supreme being. It's written in language we can all understand, and it makes you think, think, think!! I heartily recommend it.
