On one side of the argument is a collection of godless academics with doctorates from the finest universities in England, France, and the United States. On the other is Irrational Atheist author Vox Day, armed with nothing more than historical and statistical facts. Presenting a compelling argument (but not for the side one might expect), Day strips away the pseudo-scientific pretentions of New Atheism with his intelligent application of logic, history, military science, political economy, and well-documented research.

You've all seen the debates on YouTube with Christopher Hitchens and Dinesh D'Souza and the like.

If only they were debating Vox Day. The way he rips apart every single one of their arguments in this book is astounding. He lays it out and completely takes them apart point by point with facts, evidence and history. The detail Vox goes into is historically and philosophically granular, you need to listen/read it.

This is a masterpiece

As it was in Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, and Othello, so it is in life. Most forms of private vice and public evil are kindled and sustained by lies. Acts of adultery and other personal betrayals, financial fraud, government corruption - even murder and genocide - generally require an additional moral defect: a willingness to lie. In Lying, bestselling author and neuroscientist Sam Harris argues that we can radically simplify our lives and improve society by merely telling the truth in situations where others often lie.

Brilliant, I'd be lying if I said it hasn't changed my perspective about lying

I thought it was a bit short going in but it turned out to be just the right length for me. It's hard to argue with his points and there's genuinely some great information that could benefit us all. Not least some of Harris's critics.
