(From memory) Richard Dawkins' plug on the front cover of Demon-Haunted World reads:

"I wish I had written The Demon Haunted World. ... Please read this book."

Without endorsing the 'hero principle' (for either author), that's a strong endorsement.

For what it's worth, I read The Demon Haunted World, then The God Delusion and found them both to be excellent in their respective styles; Carl's is gentle, languid and eloquent (correct me if I'm wrong, but he was undergoing bone marrow transplants at the time!) while Richard's is logical, rational and unyielding.

Both should be highly recommended and required reading, IMHO (preaching to the choir for TGD, aren't I?!) :-)

Kind Regards, NS
