I've read bits and pieces thanks to Google Reader but unfortunately never the whole book. I found his treatment of Islam and its prophet to be a bit abrasive and uncharitable at times, but what I read of the psychoanalysis seemed very sound and well documented. It makes a lot of sense. I'd recommend it.
