A Devils Chaplain
Postmodernism, new-age ideas, creationism and religion in general are all attacked in the essays. The one problem with collecting such essays together in this way is that it makes Dawkins seem to have a much more negative personality than is really the case. But there are plenty of essays which show his positive side - for instance his speculations of the stage genome sequencing will have reached in 2050, and his interest in the 'Out of Africa hypothesis, mirroring his own early life in Kenya. One also gets an idea of the real Dawkins from his eulogies for Douglas Adams and W. D. Hamilton.
