Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion and the Appetite for Wonder

Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion and the Appetite for Wonder - Richard Dawkins This should have been really insipring, but I found it slightly disappointing. Dawkins is plainly on a crusade against anyone who believes in anything that cannot be proven by science. I find blind faith in religion inexplicable, but I can admire it is some ways. However I find the determined non belief in his writing depressing in a different way. I entirely agree that understanding how a rainbow is produced doesn't destroy the beauty of the rainbow, but I found little beauty or illumination in the rest of this book. Disappointing - an anti-recommend from me.
