    Hi Steve,

    I think the God Delusion might be a little slow going at first but I think you will be able to read it. If that’s the one that you’re interested in, my advice would be to go for it!

    David Mills has a good book out called “Atheist Universe”. If you go to his site (http://www.davidmills.net/) and click on the book at the top of the page, you can see some sample text. You can “try before you buy” to see if it looks too difficult.

    If you have never read any books on atheism before, you might want to have a look at “Atheism: A Very Short Introduction” by Julian Baggini to get an idea of what atheism is about:
    (http://www.amazon.com/Atheism-Very-Short-Introduction-Introductions/dp/0192804243)

    Whatever you end up getting, let me know what you think and if you would recommend it to other teens.

    The god delusion could very well be out of your reach. Reading and comprehending what he is trying to say is two TOTALLY different things, Especially with the god delusion, there were several parts I had to keep going over to finally grasp the concept.

    I cant recommend anything. Go for it though, You have to challenge your self to gain skill. This goes for everything. It is a tedious read, keep in mind. I will be checking out some of the above info as well.

    I am a 47 year old who majored in Biology and I had a difficult time with The God Dillusion. I would recommend End Of Faith by Sam Harris.

    Another Richard Dawkins book called “The Greatest Show on Earth” is a brilliantly colorful and mind-changing book that will help you see the world in completely new way – a GOOD way. It is no necessarily as much about Atheism as it is about how life went from it’s simplest form to the complex and beautiful world we see today. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new, more positive outlook on life.
