Great review of 50 Voices of Disbelief in Quadrant

The September 2010 issue of the Sydney-based conservative journal Quadrant has a lengthy, detailed, and very positive review of 50 Voices of Disbelief : Why We Are Atheists, written by philosopher of science Robert McLaughlin, who calls the book "this outstanding anthology." You can't read the review online unless you subscribe, but McLaughlin concludes his discussion of 50 Voices as follows: "there is a sense of a large and growing community out there, sharing a humanist morality and a rejection of supernatural myths, hungry for books like this."

I couldn't put it better myself. This is a great review and all contributors can be proud. For those who haven't read the book yet, well you know where to find it ... Try Amazon, Embiggen Books, Wiley-Backwell, or your favourite bookseller (though you may have to order it from the latter, depending on who it is).

I found it a wonderful read. I thought it might be boring and repetitive, but all the various perspectives really make it an excellent book.
