    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.

    Story

    Any one that likes the Penn and Teller act will love this book. Like the previous one, "God No!" its mostly little stories about Penn's life. This one had more about how Penn and Teller became Penn and Teller.

    It's all interesting, and mostly humorous.

  • American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot

    In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark - as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer.

    Story

    His Late-Late Show is on WAY too late for me to watch, so I hardly ever see him, but the title seemed interesting and I gave it a try. First, Craig reading Craig was the best part, his voice is interesting to listen to.

    Its not War and Peace, but an interesting story, told well, with humor and humility.

  • The 11 Laws of Likability: Relationship Networking... Because People Do Business with People They Like

    We all know that networking is important, and that forming relationships with others is a vital part of success. But sometimes it seems like networking removes all emotions from the equation and focuses only on immediate goals… whereas the kind of relationships that have true staying power, give us joy, and support us in the long run are founded on simply liking each other. The worst thing we can do when trying to establish a personal bond with someone is to come across as manipulative or self-serving. Authentic connections go much deeper - and feel much easier....

    Was The 11 Laws of Likability worth the listening time?

    I don't know if there's a name for the narrator's speech pattern, but IT IS SO ANNOYING. The first part of each sentence is okay, but he does something with EVERY last syllable. Like if the last word in the sentence was "end", he'd do something like "ennnNNNnndah"I couldn't listen to more than 10 minutes of the book.

  • Attack of the Theocrats!: How the Religious Right Harms Us All - and What We Can Do About It

    At no time in history has the United States had such a high percentage of theocratic members of Congress - those who expressly endorse religious bias in law. Just as ominously, especially for those who share the values and views of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, at no other time have religious fundamentalists effectively had veto power over one of the country's two major political parties. As Sean Faircloth argues in this deeply sobering yet highly engaging book, this has led to the crumbling of the country's most cherished founding principle - the wall of separation between church and state.

    Would you listen to Attack of the Theocrats! again? Why?

    YES! I have listened/read/watched other what I'll call


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That daycare centers affiliated with a religion do not have the same regulations as far as child safety as the non-religious ones. What kind of a deal is that? Child safety concerns should be universal, either its a good idea to keep medicines locked away or it isn't, for example.

    Any additional comments?

    This was an interesting listen. I was a little surprised that the author is clearly writing to a female audience, when I thought the topic was of interest to both sexes. The point is small, and barely distracts.
