Not quite as entertaining as the author's previous books, this one is mostly a compilation of famous freethinkers throughout history. As usual, Barker is witty and charming, and easy to read, but it somehow falls a bit flat, reading mostly like a Who's Who. As such, it can provide great ammunition for those who claim all the greats for Christianity, especially the section on the composers (a particular love of the author), but in the end, it just wasn't quite as good a read as some of his other writings.
