Every thought is hyperlinked, with one subject slaloming into the next in ways baffling and enlightening, confounding and profound.— Washington PostA great polemicist compellingly, effectively, sometimes bullyingly, attacks all gods and religions.*—The Globe and MailElectric and electrifying . . . high-spirited. . . . [Hitchens] has a mind like a Swiss Army knife, ready to carve up or unbolt an opponents arguments with a flick of the wrist.

. . . The business and pleasure sides of Mr. Hitchenss personality can make him seem, whether you agree with him or not, among the most purely alive people on the planet.—New York TimesFew writers can match his cerebral pyrotechnics. Fewer still can emulate his punch as an intellectual character assassin.

It is hard not to admire the sheer virtuosity of his prose, yet it is rare to mistake it for wisdom or good judgment. With Hitchens one simply goes along for the ride. The destination hardly matters.—Financial Times[Hitchens] is effortlessly witty and entertaining as well as utterly rational. . . . He offers the open-minded plenty to think about.—Booklist (starred review)*About the AuthorCHRISTOPHER HITCHENS is a columnist for Vanity Fair and perhaps the only person to be a visiting professor of liberal studies at the New School and a media fellow at the Hoover Institution.
