    Why are atheists angry? Is it because they're selfish, joyless, lacking in meaning, and alienated from God? Or is it because they have legitimate reasons to be angry - and are ready to do something about it? Armed with passionate outrage, absurdist humor, and calm intelligence, popular blogger Greta Christina makes a powerful case for outspoken atheist activism, and explains the empathy and justice that drive it. This accessible, personal, down-to-earth book speaks not only to atheists, but also to believers who want to understand the so-called new atheism.

    Good for Greta Christina for bravely and unashamedly voicing her anger, and for sending out a call to arms to all atheists to stand up and be counted.

  • Think!: Why Crucial Decisions Can't Be Made in the Blink of an Eye

    Outraged by the downward spiral of American intellect and culture, Michael R. LeGault offers the flip side of Malcolm Gladwell's best-selling phenomenon, Blink, which celebrated impulse thinking over factual knowledge or critical analysis. If best-selling books are advising us to not think, LeGault argues, it comes as no surprise that sharp, incisive reasoning is on the decline, leading our society to incompetence and failure.

    Dave says: "noncritical critical thinking"
    "really, really bad"
    Overall

    There may have been one or two good points in this book...I can't remember because the author's seething repetitive rant against feminists and environmentalists overshadowed any valid content he might have had. His insistance that climate change is non-existant destroyed any credibilty. The narration will put you to sleep.

  • The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever

    Christopher Hitchens continues to make the case for a splendidly godless universe in this first-ever gathering of the influential voices past and present that have shaped his side of the current (and raging) God/no-god debate. With Hitchens as your erudite and witty guide, you'll be led through a wealth of philosophy, literature, and scientific inquiry, including generous portions of the words of Lucretius, Benedict de Spinoza, Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Mark Twain, and more.

    Oskar E. Boethius Lissheim says: "Hitchens' Heroes"
    "not what I expected"
    Overall

    I really wanted to love this book...but just could not get into it.

    Discover David Allen's powerful productivity principles and vastly increase your ability to work better, not harder - every day. He asks listeners what's holding them back and shows how all of us can be "ready for anything" - with a clear mind, a clear deck, and clear intentions. This is the perfect audiobook for anyone wanting to work and live at his or her very best.

    Jeff says: "Good follow-up to"
    "Really bad"
    Overall

    I couldn't even get past the first hour of this audio book, it was overly simplistic and repetitious with a monotone delivery. The religious references really put me off, I felt like I was being preached to.

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Fascinating"
    Overall

    LOVED this book! I had no idea the history of this planet was so fascinating. It left me hungry to learn more.
