While its tone is playful and frivolous, this book poses tough questions over the nature of religion and belief.

Religion provides comfortable responses to the questions that have always beset humankind - why are we here, what is the point of being alive, how ought we to behave? Russell snatches that comfort away, leaving us instead with other, more troublesome alternatives: responsibility, autonomy, self-awareness. He tells us that the time to live is now, the place to live is here, and the way to be happy is to ensure others are happy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Devastating in its use of cold logic.' - The Independent'The most robust as well as the most witty infidel since Voltaire and he can not fail to sharpen men's sense of what is entailed both in belief and unbelief.' - The Spectator'What makes the book valuable is life-long uncompromising intellectual honesty.' - Times Literary Supplement

'Devastating in its use of cold logic.' - The Independent'Bertrand Russell was a mixture of convention and irregularity.' - The Daily Mail'What makes the book valuable is its life-long uncompromising intellectual honesty.' - Times Literary Supplement'There is no one who uses the English language more beguilingly than Russell, no one smoothes the kinks and creases more artfully out of the most crumpled weaves of thought.' - The Times'The most robust as well as the most witty infidel since Voltaire and he can not fail to sharpen men's sense of what is entailed both in belief and unbelief.' - The Spectator
