    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.

    I hate the word perfect, but it really does fit. The best i could do to be critical would be to complain that the audio book doesn't have the pictures that he describes.

  • God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris' recent best-seller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos.

    Story

    I consider myself a pretty smart fellow, but this book challenged every aspect of my intellect. His vocabulary is vast and he's not afraid to use it. That along with his accent made the book a little difficult to listen to in short increments (i needed to be fully invested). I found myself needing total silence as well due to the varying voice levels as well. The content is unrivaled, humorous, and even mildly enlightening. God is not Great was a very good listen and I will listen or read more Christopher Hitchens in the future.

    Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we're the number one nation at being the best at greatness. But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken! And we can't exchange it because we're 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around - we don't make anything anymore, we've mortgaged our future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders.

    Story

    I am a fan of the show so I was prepared for a certain level of sarcasm. The performance was just as well done as any episode of the Colbert Report. While I didn't "read" the book it was adapted very well into an audio book. The only real negative comment I have is that the sarcasm was too thick (at least for me). I never knew there was such a thing, but at times I actually forgot the topic he was even referring to because it was so obscured by sarcasm. It was a lot of fun to listen to, but it falls very short of an insightful read if that's what you're looking for. I wouldn't advise to listen or not based off of my opinion, but if you think you like sarcastic humor, this could prove you wrong.
