    In this deeply revealing and engaging autobiography, Herb Silverman tells his iconoclastic life story. He takes the listener from his childhood as an Orthodox Jew in Philadelphia, where he stopped fasting on Yom Kippur to test God's existence, to his adult life in the heart of the Bible Belt, where he became a legendary figure within America's secular activist community and remains one of its most beloved leaders. Never one to shy from controversy, Silverman relates many of his high-profile battles with the Religious Right.

    Any additional comments?

    Almost never do I enjoy a narration of a book by the author. Guess I am spoiled by the stage-trained skills of people like Simon Jones and Wil Wheaton. Herb Silverman's reading of his book is not very great. But the content is funny, touching, and illuminating. I didn't know him before listening to this book but I learned a lot. This is an intellectual look at our politics and culture, mixed with the attempts of Silverman to bring a little light and education into the discussion of religious/political interactions. It is well worth listening to.
