A fresh sort of list

... Prospect's Books of the Year - the underrated and the overrated. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I see that The God Delusion is among the most overrated - though Matt Ridley calls it underrated, saying the "dreadful" reviews are just "snobbish and inaccurate drivel from fans of superstition." Apparently, he failed to notice how much drivel there is in Dawkins's book, and how much Dawkins's view of science amounts to superstition. It is a poor book judged simply by the standard of Dawkins's other books.
