'The New Atheism' is a wonderful book which defends the so-called 'New Atheist' movement, of which Dr. Stenger is apart of. Victor Stenger refutes the critics who quote-mine the 'new atheist' books, and shows how they time and again promote lies and misconceptions about atheism. Stenger also disproves many of the arguments put forth by theists, which have been covered in greater detail in his and other's books.

Though I have read the books by the 'new atheists' (Richard Dawkins, Daniel C. Dennett, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, and the author), 'The New Atheism' provides a summary of the books, along with arguing for a secular, godless way of life, which can be lived fully and happily (as many have attested to)

As Dan Barker said in his review, "Stenger, with his affirming, incisive, and illuminating observations, shows us that there is truly grandeur in taking a stand for something precious: science and reason." I could not agree more

A good book but covers a lot of ground already covered.
