This is Victor Stenger’s latest book and it kicks ass.  Check it out at Amazon.

He’s written about ten or so books but besides The New Atheism I have only read “Not by Design” - Stenger is a physicist and that book is the best I’ve read on ontology and cosmology and particle physics by a physicist.

On my short list. I have read ‘God, The Failed Hypothesis’ and ‘Quantum Gods’, both good. I have heard that his ‘The Comprehensible Cosmos’ is excellent for lay people to understand Astrophysics and Cosmology.

Just the book I was looking for, thanks.
