Suggest an Atheist Book
Can someone give me guidance on a good book on anti theism? I was looking at two books.

The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins

The Portable Atheist by Christopher Hitchens

Both seem to be popular tomes, but suggestions on accessibility and readability would be great!

Why are you still reading this line when it is obviously my signature line?

End of Faith - Sam Harris

You can read his follow up book "Letter To a Christian Nation" (it's very small) but I didn't get all that much from it.

I read God Delusion after that, but felt End of Faith had more content whereas Dawkins was doing more storytelling (still a good book though).

Odd about that book that it is hard to find not online. Some of my used book stores rarely see that book.

I got a copy of The God Delusion on Kindle for Droid. They gave you a chapter or so for free. I Liked his discussion of theism, deism, and pantheism.
