@Fabio Agreed, The Selfish Gene is great. I was just talking about the religious books ie The God Delusion and not books the same authors wrote not dealing directly with the religious culture.

That reminds me, I still need to finish The Greatest Show On Earth.
Comment by Fabio on July 15, 2010 at 4:02am
I'd say Dawkins is definitely a master of his own field. Scrap the books in which he deals with the notion of god, The Selfish Gene was simply a masterpiece and a game-changing book for evolutionary biology.

@Curtis

If your asking about the big 4 here is my analysis:

Dawkins: Kind of jack of all trades but master of none, most wordy
Hitchens: Strong focus on historical, political and cultural aspects.
Dennett: Strong scientific focus, least combative
Harris: Political reactionary, least wordy, most combative

In this week’s eSkeptic, Dr. David H. Voelker reviews Wrong: Why Experts Keep Failing Us — And How to Know When Not to Trust Them, by David H. Freedman.

I personally wouldn't say Hitchens is the most popular. He's one of the most vocals and certainly the most abrasive, and he might be one of the most read authors as far as the social and political implications of organised religion go, but there's an awful lot of literature out there. It really depends on what aspect of the whole debate you'd like to investigate :)

@ Curtis: I've not read a lot of books, but I do like Richard Dawkins. There is a list of books in the area above the comments: Books of Interest to Atheists and Skeptics
Comment by Curtis Smith on July 14, 2010 at 9:28am
Does anybody know of any good books to read on Atheism? I'm not impressed with Hitchens and he seems to be the most popular. No offense Mr. Hitchens, but your book reads like a recorded lecture.

Has anybody read this?

Religion and the Human Prospect

I came across this and thought I would share it with everyone.
I have had family and friends who have had personal problems.
It is hard for them, their family and their friends.
Thought this might help those who don't want a "religious" answer.
