I stopped reading about a third of the way through the book. I didn't stop because Myers wasn't entertaining- his writing is quite endearing in fact. I didn't stop because I disagreed with Myers or his arguments- I find his arguments well considered and reasonably persuasive with a few objections that aren't a huge sticking point for me. Another reviewer noted that the book feels like a collection of blog posts, and I noticed the same thing, but wasn't why I stopped reading. I stopped reading, because Myers is beating a dead horse. If this is your first book on the subject, then it will be a solid and well written, well presented introduction. If you have read other books in the 'pop atheism' genre, then you have seen all of this before and should only read it if you are looking for further reassurance and confirmation of your biases (whichever direction to which the lie).
