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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Again, Funny & Unwaveringly Honest"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, both my atheist friends & my religious friends, because it is way funny & brutally honest.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The mixture of humor & truth, just like the first book, "God, No!"


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

    Yes. I listened to "God,No!" Both audiobooks are five stars across the board.


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

    The Real Truth, Whether You Like It Or Not


    Any additional comments?

    Again, not for the faint of heart.

    Story
    "Sunday School listeners will love this."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Penn knows what he wants emphasis on, and simply reading it won't get things across the way he does.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    How personal he is about everything. Penn has a style of talking, shooting straight, and putting things together about his thoughts. He makes sure to phrase things in specific ways, and breaks them down so that you get why he won't say a certain phrase like everyone else does.


    Any additional comments?

    Expect cursing, If you're a fan of Penn you should have an idea of what you are going to be getting into with this.

    "Great and fun listen"
    Where does Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listened to this book several times. I am a fan of Penn Jillette and listen to his podcast every week. I am so glad I chose this as my first audible book. I've listened to it several times already and never tire of it. Penn has a great delivery - he believes in what he says and he clearly enjoys talking and sharing his crazy stories with others. His personality and values come through clearly. I was especially affected by the relationship he shared with his mother. It was one of unconditional love. He aspires to this with his own children. It's funny to say, but after reading this book, I think it's made me a better person and mom to my kids. If you are a fan of Penn Jillette and love crazy stories, give this one a listen. It will not disappoint.

    "Crude AND Joyful"

    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.

    "Penn does it again"

    A great performance and a very easy listen if the language doesn't offend you. But he does go off the deep end sometimes. In one place he seems to think that Dr. Martin Luther King was accepting of atheists. Then later he says his friends say President Obama is an atheist but he is keeping it a secret. From there he blames Obama for being a silent atheist. He should be blaming his friends for making stuff up.
    But Jillette is best at being polemical, not political. Liberalism, not libertarianism. Skeptical, not cynical. Well, that might all seem like cheap shots. But, hey, I like Penn and I liked this book. It's not quite as good as "God, No!" but then sequels almost never are.

    It's pretty much like listening to Penn's Sunday School podcast. If you are a fan of Penn or Penn&Teller you are going to enjoy this book. Oh, and it will help if you are a hardcore atheist and skeptic.
