Starts well, but crashes badly
09/10/2012This is an ambitious book written by an obviously clever man. But it disappointed me greatly the further it went along.
Interestingly, I come from the same viewpoint as the author, ie I am a strong believer in Science and Logic. But while I found the discussion of the Big Bang and other issues interesting, I found the author's dogmatic approach less and less appealing, and I found myself getting more and more annoyed with his writing style and his ridiculing of religious belief, which many readers would find downright offensive. Not a good way to try to change people's viewpoint.
The last two to three chapters were downright bizarre - spiralling into a rant about the evils of modern society, and delving into the issue of the sharemarket, which he appears to have a very naive understanding of.
In summary, while the book has some interesting moments and innovative angles on important issues, to me it descended into a strange ramble, with a very poor (non-existent?) conclusion.
