    A great laugh!

    The first time I opened this book, I had a good laugh =) This book contains more funny quotes than you could find online, with some that make you explore your world-view and religious one.

    Great resource and interesting quotes from people you least expected.

    Highly recommend, especially for those interested in having some good ammo when debating relatives or friends. :-P

    An Essential Reader for all

    Mr. Huberman's reference book is a must read for all who have questioned the validity of the religious and mystic nonsense spoon fed to us from birth. If the author's acerbic quips and gibes don't make you bust a gut with laughter, nothing will. The perfect companion to Richard Dawkins' 'The God Delusion'.
