Fun stories. Better than most books I've purchased on Audible. But when he tries to connect his stories to why atheism rules supreme, then it reminds me of what happens to lawyers when they get out of law school and get in front of a judge for the first time. After they are done making their arguments, you see this look in a judge's eyes before she says, "Counselor, I think you are failing to take into consideration that . . ." And that's what happens when he tries to connect his stories into where religious people screw up. He isn't as bad as most atheist commenters on religion, but he's such an interesting and smart guy that it annoys me a little bit when he makes some of his arguments. All said, he would be fun to go on a road trip.
Happy Birthday! , Happy Birthday!, Happy Birthday!, to all you believers out there this book could change your life. are you ready to hear the truth? Unlike other books that you may have read, this one seems to be based in fact and when the details get a little fuzzy the author points them out himself
For members of the congregation, this book isn't anything new really. You've heard some of the stories. Maybe you've shed a tear or busted a gut over them before. You've heard Penn's gregarious cackle -- and you've heard him get very serious about a few topics, only to laugh about something else.
This is a fun book that gives you a window into Penn's life and outlook. Fans know what to expect.
Fun and very funny book. If you are religious and easily offended stay clear. But judging bye the fact your reading reviews I highly doubt that is the case. I mix of funny stories and interesting insight. I would definitely recommend this book.
Although I like Penn as an entertainer, I as skeptical about getting one of his books. I couldn't have been more wrong. This is a "have a seat by the campfire, grab a beer, I got some stories to tell you. You won't believe what happened..." Type of book. Worth it and worth it a second time.
'Leaving New Orleans also frightened me considerably. Outside of the city limits the heart of darkness, the true wasteland begins.'
In this book he uses the various seasonal holidays to tell tales about his life and connect them to whichever holiday he now does not celebrate. There's Christmas, of course, but also Columbus Day, and Martin Luther King's birthday. I have to admit, traveling through Penn's profane views, he still makes a great case for atheism, but he does it with humor and insight. It's a fun book and well worth reading, even if you are not an atheist!
