Publisher's Summary

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.

Whether he's contemplating the possibility of life after death, deconstructing popular Christmas carols, or just calling bullsh*t on Donald Trump's apprentice training, Jillette does not fail to shock and delight his fans. And as ever, underneath these rollicking rants lie a deeply personal philosophy and a generous spirit, which find joy and meaning in family, and peace in the simple beauty of the everyday.

Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday! is a hysterical affirmation of life's magic from one of the most distinctly perceptive and provocative humorists writing today.

    "Not really about atheism."

    Not really about atheism. It's more about personal anecdotes and some times he says that he doesn't believe in god. The anecdotes are actually fun to hear but I personally expected something different, it was entertaining to hear though. Not great but not bad at all either.

    "Another amazing book by Penn Jillette"

    If you love raw humor, weird and awesome stories, and are honest - you'll love this book. Penn is funny, sincere, and details a lot of the mental processes that are often overlooked in storytelling.

    Story
    "More great stories from Penn!"

    In this book he uses the various seasonal holidays to tell tales about his life and connect them to whichever holiday he now does not celebrate. There's Christmas, of course, but also Columbus Day, and Martin Luther King's birthday. I have to admit, traveling through Penn's profane views, he still makes a great case for atheism, but he does it with humor and insight. It's a fun book and well worth reading, even if you are not an atheist!

    Story
    "Basically a Podcast: Penn's Life"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I thought I would get more logical conversation about the flaws with theism, Christianity specifically. Penn always talks about his knowledge of the bible, I wish he would have put more about rising his kids from the perspective of an non-believer. But he doesn't really talk much about being an atheist and why he chose this path in a sea of theists.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Penn has had an amazing life, well earned by the sweat of his brow.


    Do you think Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, this wasn't really book with a point, more like a fire side chat with Penn about some cool points in his life.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a bad listen I just had different expectations.

    Story
    "Not what I thought..."
    What did you love best about Every Day is an Atheist Holiday!?

    The Honesty and the fact that Penn does the reading. He is great to listen too with his rough carny voice and passion for what he believes in.


    What did you like best about this story?

    With Atheist in the title I expected Penn to go on one of his tirades with regards to the illogic of religion, which he does, but not as overtly as expected. He basically tells stories... and relates them to reality and religion. And ne'er the twain shall meet. He is abrasive and vulgar (which is OK with me).


    What does Penn Jillette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He passion for the stories he is telling in the book.

    Story
    "Another Winner From Penn Jillette"
    Would you listen to Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! again? Why?

    Yes because Penn is just an amazing and fun story teller. He has fun with the reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just everything in general. His stories are great! Some time it might be a little to much info for some people but if you know Penn it makes since.


    Have you listened to any of Penn Jillette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first I have listened to. I read God No and I loved it. May have to listen to it.


    If you could give Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Every Day is an Atheist Holiday: More bullshit from half of the Duo that brought you bullshit. (even though I truly beleive all the stories)

    Story
    "Great book with a great narration!"
    Would you listen to Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! again? Why?

    I probably will at some point. For two reasons 1. Penn has a way with explaining things that makes you ponder his points and I want to go back and revisit that after taking time to ponder. 2. Its a great funny moving book.


    What other book might you compare Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! to and why?

    This is really the first book like this I have experienced.


    Which character – as performed by Penn Jillette – was your favorite?

    Penn does a pretty good Ron Jeremy.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did laugh and was close to tearing up at a few of the stories.


    Any additional comments?

    Penn Jillette is an extremely intelligent person, even though he likes to claim otherwise, He is witty, crude and funny in ways you would not imagine. If you have experienced any other material by him you know this, but if you do not know him then you need to expect that this is going to be a very uncensored book with things in it that may offend you so go listen to one of his pod casts from his sunday school radio show before you decide you should buy this.

    Story
    "I think God No was better"

    Penn Jillette's other book is better. Hands down. But in God No, he was writing with a more distinct purpose in mind weaving every rambling story back around to his overall argument. And he's great at that. There's no doubting that EDiaAH is a lighter Penn than what he ran with in God No. He's more vulnerable and personal and actually listening to his raspy damaged voice talk about his children and his parents never being in the same room. This is why audio books work. In print, these chapters would fall and possibly not be as vital. But as Penn reads, it hits him. There's a treble in his voice. A slight rumble and he slurs his words slightly(you salivate more when emotionally effected so hey here's some science). These moments are why I listen to audiobooks.
