Listener Opinions

    " Vintage Hedges confronting the silliness of the New Atheism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leonard | 2/4/2014

    " If there's one non-fiction writer in the US we should be reading, it's Hedges. Even since "War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning," Hedges has been turning out important books about the world today. In this one he squashes the arguments of Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and others who say there is no God. When you're finished with this book you will want to also read, "What Every Person Should Know About War," "Losing Moses on the Freeway," "American Fascists," and "The Ten Commandments in America." "

    " Amazing book - very thought provoking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Johnson | 12/4/2013

    " Hodges makes some good points, but is way off base on so many others. His reduction of atheists Harris, Hitchens, and Dawkins often seems as reductionist as the atheists are of Christianity and Islam. I long for a book that treats these subjects with more respect and less dogmatism. I am grateful for hedges' remarks on Joseph Conrad's realism on the savage streak in human nature, something we ignore to our peril. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/30/2013

    " Hedges was able to pick out every unfavorable aspect of both religion and science. Addresses important issues and very thought provoking but I ended the book feeling a bit depressed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nance | 11/20/2013

    " Hedges answer to Hitchens "God is not Great" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 10/1/2013

    " He starts many of his arguments with undefended sweeping generalizations which I resent, but the most interesting topics, he fully explains his starting premises. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Jean | 9/25/2013

    " Excellent points but I felt that it was rushed, dashed off. The last two chapters are the strongest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liam | 1/7/2013

    " While I learned somethings, I think the "New Athiests" aren't as huge of a threat as the American religious right, though he makes a point of the disturbing things that come out of the mouth's of some of these people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty | 12/8/2012

    " This book was welcome reading after I had been reading and exploring atheism. I was thoroughly depressed by atheism and this was a great pick-me-up. It also turned me on to Chris Hedges columns at Truthdig.com "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sondra Wilson | 9/18/2012

    " Previous published as Why I don't believe in Athiests, this book is intoxicating. Chris Hedges has got to have one of the sexiest brains on the planet. He is the standard for critical thinking. I could hardly put it down. I can't wait to read another by him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon | 8/12/2012

    " This book is much less a polemic on atheism (or even new atheism), and much more about the problems inherent in utopianism and moral progressivism. It is an extremely thought provoking read, and brings up a multitude of questions about belief, progressivism, and teleology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 3/16/2012

    " Oh, so, interesting. Fundamentalism bad at both ends of the spectrum. Christians and athiests beware. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 will | 4/21/2011

    " i have only read the prologue and a quarter of the first chapter. this book has already put me in a trance. i'm actually taking notes as i read it. taking notes. i'm thinking about writing an essay when i finish it. i already HIGHLY recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gayle | 4/18/2011

    " Chris Hedges is always interesting and likes to stir things up. His book," War is the Force that Gives Us Meaning" is also excellent. All his books make you think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sondra | 1/22/2010

    " Previous published as Why I don't believe in Athiests, this book is intoxicating. Chris Hedges has got to have one of the sexiest brains on the planet. He is the standard for critical thinking. I could hardly put it down. I can't wait to read another by him. "

    " I will plow through it but have found his "over-reaching" much like the title...Cutesy confusion of concepts to make complete (and faulty) analogies out of superficial comparisons. Yes, some atheists are strongly opinionated..as are fundamentalists Christians...so ? "
