Reviews

"With wit, logic, and his characteristic flair for expressing complex ideas with uncanny clarity, Richard Dawkins separates myth from reality in Outgrowing God. His book is more than a beginners' guide to atheism: it is a primer that liberates us to see and explore the beauty of the Universe free of fables and fantasies."--Neil Shubin, paleontologist and author of Your Inner Fish

"When people ask the question 'If you could have dinner with any three people . . ., ' Richard Dawkins often springs to mind. Reading Outgrowing God felt kind of like actually getting to have that dinner. Dawkins spent the first half of the dinner blowing my mind by explaining what we know about the origins of the Bible, before spending the second half changing the way I think about evolution. As is always the case when I spend time in Richard Dawkins's mind, I came out feeling smarter."--Tim Urban, author of Wait But Why

"The book . . . vividly demonstrates the spirit of scientific discovery that has made life meaningful for Dawkins himself. His contagious enthusiasm renders the basics of natural selection newly astonishing."--The Guardian "Richard Dawkins is one of the great scientists and science communicators of our time, and Outgrowing God: A Beginner's Guide shows that he does not mean to relinquish those titles any time soon. It is a paean to truth and reason, written in the hope that more people will rally to the defense of those values at a time when they are being hastily abandoned. . . . Dawkins writes so well that his hope of helping society grow up might just be fulfilled."--Areo Magazine
