I'm sorry to say that this book didn't hold my attention, I didn't quite make it half through. It seemed to drag on and didn't really make a point. I respect the author for his efforts in trying to get people to see that God does indeed exist, but on an intellectual level it's not meant for everyone. Many scientific references are made throughout the book which unfortunately I could honestly not relate to all the time. That said, perhaps the title mislead me into thinking I was going to read a book more about religion and less about scientists, intellectuals, Harvard etc..
This book was recommended to me by a friend I met who actually went from being an atheist to a believer in God, after reading this book. Intrigued, I went out and bought it and I couldn't put it down! Although already a believer, I really enjoyed its practical grounding and skeptical approach. It gave me a lot of scientific, psychological, and physiological fodder for defending the existence of God to others, and to myself. There was also discussion of various life-after-death experiences from a wide range of people all over the world, totally unconnected, and the conclusions that must be drawn from such things. The book was refreshing to read in that it gave me further statistical evidence of the power of religion to reform and empower individuals in life. I recommend this book to many. I have heard some scientists on TV rebuking some of the scientific claims of the author about the difficulty in finding another explanation for the order and consistency found in the Universe, but over all the book gives such conclusive and logical arguments that any weaknesses in one aspect cannot be weighted against the sheer dominance of the conclusions of the author. Also, there was interesting discussion of the powers of ALL religions, not just one sect or church, to improve lives, and to experience life-after-death reunions and joyful heaven-like realities.
