"Jason Rodenhouse's book is a fascinating look at creationism from the outside. Rather than simply poke fun at silly creationist ideas, a game that palls rather quickly, Rodenhouse attends creationist and ID (Intelligent Design) conferences, visits centres and generally immerses himself in the culture. ... While he does this from the point of view of an atheist, he is respectful of those he is meeting with. ... Overall an interesting book if you really want to get to grips with why creationism is so strong in the US." - Brian Clegg, Now Appearing
