This book has attracted almost as much attention as Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, albeit for different reasons. Interestingly, it has been criticised by both religious and atheist readers on the grounds that Dawkins is out of his depth philosophically and often substitutes reasoned argument with ranting polemics.

Dawkins is really powerful whilst on his home ground of science but he does not appear to be as competent when trying to mount arguments on topics he is unfamiliar with – and to be frank – really in not interested in.

Here is a collection of reviews on the book and related topics. The Wikipedia article even contains a synopsis – so you can avoid having to buy and read the book!
