The Fallacy of Fine-Tuning: Why the Universe Is Not Designed for Us

The Fallacy of Fine-Tuning: Why the Universe Is Not Designed for Us - Victor J. Stenger The author does make a slam dunk case on the non-sense of fine-tuning. He fills the book with mathematics, physics and statistical equations. That doesn't bother me, what did bother me is he doesn't always give enough explanations to the equations or their derivations if the reader is seeing them for the first time. If you put such complex equations into a book, don't underestimate the reader's desire to understand them, but they often were obviously incomplete.

The writer is not always good at explaining somethings and I would find myself re-reading sections for clarification and realizing that some of the points weren't fully flushed out. That could be frustrating.

Though, sometimes the author explained concepts or put the pieces together or made statements better than I have ever seen them anywhere before. This is one of the beauties of this book. The author knew how to get to the heart of a point better than I've seen elsewhere.

Fine-tuning is just a dumb concept and the author gives really good reasons why it should be ignored. Most of the book is a reaction to what somebody (usually a theist of some kind) has made and the author demonstrates why the point is best thought of in different ways.

My complaint of the book is not the author's points or arguments, it's that he doesn't always explain the math fully and sometimes he writes awkwardly.
