I believe Reciprocating Bill read it as well. I can't remember what thread he put his review on--I think it was the Unreasonable Kansans thread, but it could have been the Ftk research thread.
IIRC, he seemed to think it missed the boat quite often: not actually making the case against each atheist's argument. At least the bits he quoted seemed to have much better sentence structure and meaningful content than Denise O'Leary. It's something, anyway.
You seem to have liked it somewhat better. Perhaps I'll have a go at it when I'm on the road this fall.
