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.

    "more of a mini bio, but interesting"
    What did you love best about Every Day is an Atheist Holiday!?

    I love that he is taking a word [atheist] that was meant to be derogative and embracing it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Every Day is an Atheist Holiday!?

    "come on baby, you can take all of me" [in a sleazy spanish accent]

    But what I can't get out of my mind is the standoff between Penn and Hitchens. Hitch was spot on with his assessment of Penn's "religious" views on alcohol.

    ==HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!== Disney


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

    consistent


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

    "Family" or "my heart to heart with Clay Akin"


    Any additional comments?

    It's a book filled with digressions that to an extent are not needed to support the thesis of the book and yet are at times entertaining. Penn, and every other libertarian need to stop making the embarrassingly ignorant catchphrase "at gunpoint". They are and he is referencing taxes of course and the ultimate use of force but fail to realize that their proposed alternative system also requires force "at gunpoint".

    "Some good stuff but a lot of rambling"
    Any additional comments?

    I have mixed feelings about this book. Some of it was good while other parts not so much.

    I liked the sections of the book where Penn talks religion and atheism. Humor is a great means of communication and he uses it to effectively examine the many hypocrisies and fallacies of religious belief. He is not afraid to lay it all out there in his unique irreverent way. Those who are very religious will likely be offended by these passages but then they are unlikely to be reading this in the first place.

    I also enjoyed some of the insight into his performances but there should have been more of this with some secrets revealed. I know he can't give away his whole act but a few juicy tidbits of revealed magic would have been nice.

    Now the bad. To much rambling steam of consciousness stuff about uninteresting events. Why is it parents who have kids late in life feel the need to wax on and on about them? Nobody cares. It may be fascinating to you but it is boring to everybody else.

    Too much about what music Penn is into. Again, interesting to him but nobody else. We want to know more about what makes Penn unique, not his love of Bob Dylan and NRBQ.

    He is a little too into his own genitalia. Everybody has those parts. Again, not interesting.

    I could have easily fast forwarded half of this book and it would have been a lot better.

    I only paid $5 for it. Would not have been worth more.

    Sorry Penn. Still like you though.

    Story
    "Not For the Faint of Heart, Heart Warming Anecdote"

    Often dirty, often touching, but always interesting anecdotes from Penn's life. If you love Penn Jillette, if you love Atheist philosophy or stories about the interesting life of a humble, honest, but still flawed human being this book is for you. If you're easily offended by inappropriate actions or thinking stay far, far away. The only writer on the subject of Atheism I enjoy more than Penn is Christopher Hitchens himself, and like Mr. Hitchens' God is Not Great, Penn narrates this work himself lending the emotion and cadence that he intended while penning the novel.

    "Read by Author."

    I couldn't imagine anyone other than Penn Jillette reading his books. Just as good as God No. I might be biased as I am a huge fan of Penn and Teller.

    Story
    "Good stories, not so much on making connections"

    Fun stories. Better than most books I've purchased on Audible. But when he tries to connect his stories to why atheism rules supreme, then it reminds me of what happens to lawyers when they get out of law school and get in front of a judge for the first time. After they are done making their arguments, you see this look in a judge's eyes before she says, "Counselor, I think you are failing to take into consideration that . . ." And that's what happens when he tries to connect his stories into where religious people screw up. He isn't as bad as most atheist commenters on religion, but he's such an interesting and smart guy that it annoys me a little bit when he makes some of his arguments. All said, he would be fun to go on a road trip.

    "an enlightening super-natural experience"

    Happy Birthday! , Happy Birthday!, Happy Birthday!, to all you believers out there this book could change your life. are you ready to hear the truth? Unlike other books that you may have read, this one seems to be based in fact and when the details get a little fuzzy the author points them out himself

    "Penn's thoughts and funny stories"

    For members of the congregation, this book isn't anything new really. You've heard some of the stories. Maybe you've shed a tear or busted a gut over them before. You've heard Penn's gregarious cackle -- and you've heard him get very serious about a few topics, only to laugh about something else.

    This is a fun book that gives you a window into Penn's life and outlook. Fans know what to expect.
