Amazing. That one word encapsulates this book in a nutshell. Richard Dawkins uses his expert command of words to explain Science, Atheism and His Life in such a breathtakingly way that while it is a long book, it flies by. 5/5 stars

Warning however, Dawkins is an atheist as stated above and religious people may not agree with his views. Hopefully this helps you

Clearly an intelligent and persuasive man, but much of the text consists of laudatory comments about others which came to be very wearing. Like the curate's egg, good in parts.
