    Let's be honest - nobody has more fun than atheists. Don’t believe it? Well, consider this: For nonbelievers, every day you’re alive is a day to celebrate! And no one celebrates life to the fullest like Penn Jillette - the larger, louder half of legendary magic duo Penn & Teller - whose spectacularly witty and sharply observant essays in Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday! will entertain zealots and skeptics alike.

    What would have made Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! better?

    Just tell the story without the profanity laced throughout. Most of which didn't even make sense in the context. He was just swearing to swear


    Would you ever listen to anything by Penn Jillette again?

    No.


    Have you listened to any of Penn Jillette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have but it was only a four-minute preview. I had no idea this book was going to be as offensive as it was from the preview I listened to.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Every Day is an Atheist Holiday!?

    All of the references of his public nudity and all of the unnecessary profanity.

    I can't imagine anyone, except maybe his wife, who would care to see Penn Jillette in the nude.

    The profanity was really over done, it didn't even make sense in most cases, it was just there for shock value.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be nice if Penn saw this review, got in touch with me and offered me a refund.

  • Inside Delta Force: The Story of America’s Elite Counterterrorist Unit

    Delta Force—the US Army’s most elite top-secret strike force. They dominate the modern battlefield, but you won’t hear about their heroics on CNN. No headlines can reveal their top-secret missions, and no book has ever taken readers inside—until now. Here, a founding member of Delta Force takes us behind the veil of secrecy and into the action to reveal the never-before-told story of First Special Forces Operational Detachment-D (Delta Force).

    Story
    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who hasn't read any books about the Navy SEALs or Special Forces.


    What was most disappointing about Eric L. Haney???s story?

    It wasn't that exciting. It was filled with mundane events and conversations obviously put in just for filler.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robertson Dean?

    I don't have a favorite but definitely someone who has more experience. He sounds like this is maybe his first attempt. He needs a lot of practice and or training before he should be turned loose.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I can appreciate the men who serve not only in Special Forces but in the military period. Thanks for bringing them to our attention.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read several books on the Navy SEALs and compared to what they go through becoming a member of Delta Force seems like Boy Scout Camp.
