I'm still checking out books about religion (or lack of it) and this is next on the list.
I can't find a better price delivered anywhere.

Review
"'If Hitchens didn't exist, we wouldn't be able to invent him.' Ian McEwan 'Do yourself a favor and skip the Dawkins and Harris; they're smug, turgid, and boring, with all the human feeling of a tax return. Read Hitchens instead... A tendentious delight, a caustic and even brilliant book... Thank God for Christopher Hitchens.' - Mark Warren, Esquire 'Dazzling... A campaign to put this glittering anti-theist tract on the national curriculum for "religious education" should begin here.' - Johann Hari, Independent 'Hitchens is a grand rhetorician, and his double-barrelled shotgun of a book is high entertainment... As with Voltaire, his scornful laughter is a powerful weapon.' - Christopher Hart, Sunday Times 'The anti-religion case has never been put so well, so comprehensively or so definitively as in this razor-sharp book... Hitchens accumulates a devastating case... Outstanding.' - A.C. Grayling, Independent on Sunday 'Christopher Hitchens is a master craftsman of argument... God is not Great is undoubtedly the most boisterously entertaining contribution to the [atheism] debate.' - Siobhan Murphy, Metro 'God is not Great is easily the most brilliant and fascinating contemplation upon the role of religion in human society in recent times, the Das Kapital of a tolerant, if exasperated, atheism.' - Kevin Myers, Irish Independent"

Esquire US
'Thank God for Christopher Hitchens. For he has written the finest
of the down-with-God books.'

Proof that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. We did not "come" from chimps. Humans and chimps both evolved from a common ancestor.

Released here April 3rd, been about around the rest of the globe for months, bit weird we're one of the last to get.
Director Larry Charles is pretty good.:thumbsup:
If its as funny as "Borat" or "Curb Your Enthsiam" it should be great.
I'll watch when I can...

I'm gonna play thread bingo,
On my card I have:
monkey-yes (chimp counts)
how long till I get the following,
dinosaur,
darwin,
ark,
Jesus,
Dawkins
and this next one might stop me from shouting BINGO,
The Krankies.

An excellent read at an excellent price.

Unfortunately, the people who would benefit most from reading this are the ones who would rather throw it on a large fiery heap alongside other 'heretic' texts.

compare the actions of his followers before he died and afterwards - what explanations do you have for the change?

My argument continues that Atheists are religious! If as a born again Christian, I posted evangelical books from Amazon that had 40% off the rrp, I would be slaughtered for 'ramming religion down your throat' for something that wasn't even a bargain. However, if it is Atheist propaganda, 40% off seems OK to post on Hotukdeals. As opposed to being a good bargain, I think that you Peachgod are ramming your opinions and sentiment down my throat! Therefore I believe that Atheism is your religion.

By the way, I agree with most of the arguments on this thread that religion sucks. The Bible compares religion to a used tampex! What the Bible teaches is how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ! Born again Christians are no better morally that anyone else - the only difference is that they have asked Jesus to forgive them for the sins they have and will commit and asked Him to be Lord of their life.

The amount of money he has made out of selling his life story over the last 2000 years, he can afford to buy real cigarettes, not roll ups.

So if someone posts a deal about bananas, would they be accused of ramming bananas down your throat? Would their religion be bananas?

My deals keep getting spammed!
If people don't like this book's content then why are you reading this.

Debate is good:thumbsup:

but maybe done on a Misc thread

Great price, I been thinking of buying this for a while now.
Good find. Thanks

COLD. This isn't a deal - it's the same price at Waterstones and presumably eleswhere.

My deals keep getting spammed!



Perhaps if you posted real deals and not excuses for a debate they'd last longer :idea:

The title of the book was presumably a crude summary thought up by the publishers and used against Hitchins wishes? - A bit like taking a study on heart desease and concluding anything that might produce Cholesterol is bad for you.

Thanks for the Bingo pics earlier, Bigboy

I get lots of Jesus pics when I google him?
Maybe you have an extra sensitive filter in place?

Good deal, thanks. I've got the audio book but maybe I'll buy the print copy as a gift for my of my sadly brainwashed relatives - probably a waste of effort and money, but I just can't help myself ;-)

Sorry, commenting is no longer available on this deal.
