This is really a great book I loved it. If your a fan of penn and teller you'll love this book. This book is hilarious although very crude. He is a very smart man and i agree with him on a lot of topics but the one issue I had with this book is that only about 1/3 of the book actually talked about
I cannot imagine just reading this book. You must listen. Penn is so F&@ci$ funny.
My favourite character is the kid who suspects his parents are the tooth fairy.
The hair dryer scene had me laughing so hard, I had to stop the book and pull my car over to the side of the road.
There is no dead spot. DAMN, this book is funny.
I think i would because he is entertaining.
most interesting was the facts about his views of atheism and the least interesting was Penn going on and on about his ex-girlfriends and relationships.
I thought God No would be more about an atheist view than a biographical expose of Penn Jillette`s random life exploits. Not being an actual fan of Penn outside his magic act perhaps I am simply the wrong audience for this book.
I didn`t find much in God No interesting. Some of his stories are funny so it can be a light hearted listen.
I wouldn`t listen to another book narrated or written by Penn Jillette. Too much swearing for my taste (and I am not a prude or against such - except when it just seems to roll off someone`s tongue as if they can`t help but use the F or C word every sentence)Listening to God No I now know enough about Penn Jillette to know I may appreciate his magic - but not his politics or story telling.
God No, I hope this isn`t followed up with another book. (pun intended) - What`s to follow up with; more stories about drunken orgies and bad relationships?
To be fair, this book may appeal to people who already know enough about Jillette to know how much he swears, what his stories are likely to be about, and for those more interested in his past than his religious or non-religious beliefs.
Penn can be very funny, but at the same time he does well to elucidate his arguments. I didn't expect it coming in, but it can be an emotional rollercoaster to get through.
Penn's ramblings can really only be understood in Penn's voice.
The stories of the loss of his parents were very moving. You could tell that what he said was true to him. I disagree with him on a few points, but I don't doubt that he absolutely believes it all.
This is a fantastic book and well worth your time.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to open up their eyes to logic and reason about life and religion.
Penn definitely meanders in a lot of different directions that aren't necessarily related to atheism. However, I'd put a high entertainment rating on the entire book. It's both sensible and hilarious.
Hearing Penn doing his own book.
Penn Jillette as himself reflecting on his own life.
I, being an atheist (although I don't call myself one because I see atheism as its own religion), thought Penn did an excellent job, even overselling. I didn't think he had to be as strong as he was in presentation to get his points across.
Pretty funny for anyone who already has a secular worldview, but will probably be pretty offensive to anyone else.
This audiobook is one of the funniest and clever I've listened to in quite some time. I think the question of atheism is only a sidebar here. The real quaility here is just great stories with a wit and humor. Penn Jillette is the magician's version of Hunter S. Thompson without the drugs and booze. Never a dull moment. Great listen!!
