He is witty, funny not to mention a genius. I love his work. His book The God Delusion really solidified things for me. That book made feel like it was OK to be an atheist - not only OK, but wonderful.

God Delusion is a great start then, and I'd advice checking out the following books by other authors, too:

Godless - Dan Barker
It's the story of an ex-evangelical preacher who turned to atheism when the voice of reason started to reach him. Great book, and very informative. It'll give you the information you need to make a strong arguement.

Demon Haunted World - Carl Sagan

Not so much an atheism book as it is agnosticism in general, but this book helped me more than any other. It explains why science and reason are so important.

Im reading a lot lately, so I become more educated about the subject. I have a very religious family, and I am planning in expressing my beliefs to them, but i want to have a more detailed knowledge before I do. Like that I can prove to them that everything has logic explanations. Unlike their beliefs that have no evidence.

Your friends who argue the 'design' perspective would actually be willing to read books to the contrary? That is pretty impressive. Haha..

I own most of Dawkin's books, but have only gotten around to reading a few of them. They are all on my list, though.

The Greatest Show On Earth was good, and I learned a number of tidbits of information that I had not known before, although I was already quite familiar with the basics of evolutionary theory.

I found the Selfish Gene to be very engrossing reading, and Unweaving the Rainbow was fantastic. The Blind Watchmaker I found both an enjoyable read and good for loaning to friends who like to argue the 'design' perspective.

The God Delusion was amazing, as was Unweaving the Rainbow. Greatest Show on Earth is a good book, but I've read so many other books proving Evolution that it didn't really stand out to me. Still, I am learning a good bit from it. I need to finish it.

The book of his I really want to read is The Ancestor's Tale. It's just so massive that I've been putting it off. I've read the first few chapters and could tell it was going to be an amazing book.

I am still reading his book The God Delusion, But can't wait to start reading his new Book, The Greatest show on Earth.
