Before this book I didn't know much about Freud or Lewis. I enjoyed it very much. The difference in how they died made the whole book worth reading. This book should be entertaining for both atheists and christians.

This book is really a great book. I read it a while ago and so did a ot of my friends - everyone thought it was great. I learned a lot about C. S. Lewis and Freud, their history and from their writings. I highly recommend it.

This book has a very interesting premise, but the effect is somewhat diminished by the author's blatant support of Lewis's post-conversion view. His phrasing and what lines he chooses to quote from Lewis and Freud show a clear preference for Christianity.

If you are actually looking for help in deciding between atheism and Christianity, I think it would be more effective to read the source materials in their entirety and draw your own conclusions.

If you are looking simply for a book that explains a bit about the life and mindset of these two great men, then this is a good book to look at.

This book is an interesting study of two very influential individuals. However, I think it goes a little soft on religion in some places, revealing the author's bias.

There are a few sentences underlined in here but the book is in excellent condition.
