Over the past month I've been listening to a great work Dawkins' "The God Delusion". Be it while going to work, at work or even before going to sleep there is something about the depth and intellectual intensity that intrigues and makes one think and have pause. Afterall the Audible.com version is over 15 hours! Does anyone else have an audible/audio version?See More
