The major theme of the book... that you don't need God to be kind, loyal, moral and happy... and that you are probably better off... is a potent one and nobody can bring it home like Penn. My favorite passage in the book is the last one.. about his son and his highly developed sense of integrity and self-awareness at barely toddler age. Children without religion (IMHO) get the healthiest and most inspiring lessons.
I love this book.... I think I've listened to it 4 times now and will probably listen again every couple of years going forward. Each time something else strikes me as important, new, interesting, funny or just plain crazy. Bryson is the best at what he does!
