Reviews

"If thinking were a sport, these four would be national superstars--and reading The Four Horsemen feels like having a front-row seat at the all-star game. This is more than a book about atheism and religion--it's a lesson in how to use our intellect to cut through the haze of delusion and misconception inherent in any human society."--Tim Urban, writer of Wait But Why?

"For people inclined to disbelieve supernatural explanations--in America, we few, we happy few, we band of brothers and sisters--The Four Horsemen is a smart, fun, funny, seriously provocative primer."--Kurt Andersen, host of Studio 360 and author of Fantasyland "We are slowly losing the hard-won right, gained by brave heroes of the enlightenment such as Voltaire and Hume, to be free to criticize religion without persecution and prosecution; the crime of blasphemy is creeping back. The words of Hitchens, Dawkins, Harris, and Dennett are needed more than ever. These are the heirs to Voltaire."--Matt Ridley, author of The Evolution of Everything "These four are the kinds of thinkers we don't get enough of anymore: unapologetic, uncompromising, and deeply generous with one another as well as with anyone who happens to be listening in. You needn't be an atheist or a horseman to relish every word of this delightful book. You just need to be hungry for genuine intellectual inquiry and open debate. And, let's face it, you're probably starving."--Meghan Daum, author of The Unspeakable

"This conversation is as good a place as any to mark the start of the Atheist revolution."--Penn Jillette, author of God, No! "Blasphemous, erudite, devastatingly truthful, slyly hilarious . . . Reading this book is like getting to spend a profound afternoon with some of our greatest intellectuals."--Julia Sweeney, actress, comedian, author

"I was gripped. Throughout this erudite conversation the humility and openness of science shines against religion's arrogance, hypocrisy, and sheer gall in just 'making stuff up.' How refreshing it is."--Susan Blackmore, author of The Meme Machine
