Also worth a read are:
Dan Dennett – Breaking the Spell.
Victor Stenger – God the Failed Hypothesis.
George Smith – Atheism, the case against god.
I also have read both and would prefer Dawkins. But Hitchens is still worth the time to read as he seems to have a different way of looking at things.
I havent read the Dawkins book yet but I have to write it is flattering to know that I have argued the same points and asked the same questions as Hitchens and Dawkins regarding religion and belief in an intervening deity. Thanks for the the book recommendations....
Maybe I should add to the confusion and make yet another suggestion. I found "Atheism Explained" by David Ramsay Steele to be a great book, very concise, well structured, lucid and damn nearly complete.
I agree with what seems to be the consensus so far about God Is Not Great and The God Delusion. Personally, when confronted with a choice between them, I would take the first, but only for it's entertainment value. The books are pretty much equally weak philosophically.
