I've always considered The Extended Phenotype to be Dawkin's best book.

It's strange and not an insult but I came to my atheism without having read any of Richard Dawkins' works. I've seen and heard him on television and the numerous podcasts I listen to. He is perhaps mentioned most on Skepticality, New England Skeptical Society and of course, FFRF.org's Freethought Radio & Podcast. My critical thinking and skeptic (sceptic across the pond) ways were developed over the last decade or so to a point where I was wondering if I was a sited man amongst the blind. I'm happy to report I no longer feel that way. I just wish I had an immediate support group.

I will be reading Dawkin's works when my time is less constrained by needs of the body and family. Bush's Economy has hit me in the rear as it did back in 2002.

I've never denied being Atheist but I've been more vocal about it over the last 7-10 years. I'm most interested in "The God Delusion" for my first dive into Dawkins' works.

Anyone have another suggestion for a first read of his?

I am listening to the god delusion, this should be required reading for everyone. I feel so much better after listening to THE GOD DELUSION. I was a closet Athiest, now I have came out to my family and they acted like, WELL DUH. They already knew i was one. My biggest fear is coming out to my crochet group. Our teacher is a Mennonite. I really like her. I know she won't like me any more if I tell her. Linda

I am very exciting while writing this note..to the name of my most
favorite author... I have read 'God Delusion' and 'Blind Watch maker'.

About 12 years ago, I also wrote a book in our own language (Urdu) "Concept of God"... which was equal to blasphemous act as for my society is concerned...

You are a great source of inspiration of all Free thinkers..
Being a scientist, you are doing a great job in spreading rationality.

I admit it, Richard Dawkins is my hero. I was already starting to teeter toward atheism, and reading The God Delusion sealed it. I also enjoy watching his videos and wish I could remain as calm as he does talking to the theists.

It was The God Delusion that helped me embrace my atheism fully. Truly, one of the most prolific writers of two centuries.

Best Dawkins talk EVER!

Recently Richard sat down with Aubry Manning and had a really interesting discussion about there careers and background at oxford. But more recently the video site T5M interviewed Dawkins, you can find all these videos and links on his website.

RiverOtter, "The God Delusion" is of the best books I have ever read, along with every other book he has ever written. If you like audiobooks, try "On the Origin of Species", read by Richard Dawkins. I have read the book twice and found the audiobook compliments it very well. I listen to it on my iPod regularly. So regularly, I just might have it memorized someday!

Richard Dawkins is my hero! I am going to read "The God Delusion" as soon as I can afford it. I can't wait.
