Day after finishing - 21st August 2011


Got it for like £2.50 on September 20th 2011. It was highly recommended, and I wanted to use my Kindle :P I wasn't really expecting great things, I was extremely reluctant to spend any money on it, but the reviews from people like Ricky Gervais and Neil deGrasse Tyson were very positive. My expectation was that it'd be a sermon on complete unconditional honesty which would make Christopher Hitchens laugh.

I read it that night.

Load of shit.
