An almost great book

This book is a decent collection of existing works that is sure to get you thinking.

The only problem I have with it is the intellectual dishonesty of the author, in the beginning; he sets out to make sure that he's presenting to the reader an impartial book, however throughout (and much noticeably towards the end) he shows a lot of personal bias.

I would have no problem with it except the fact that if you are going to make it seem as if you aren't preaching your side as best, stick to that principle.

Otherwise it is a great read and I would recommend it, the narrator does a very good job.
