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.

For me, Penn Jillette emerges from this performance as a fairly likable and entertaining guy. That being said, I can't, at this point, think of a single reason I would care very much about his opinion on anything. It's not that he's obnoxious, or foul-mouthed (although he is a bit of the former and a lot of the latter) it's just that he's not an authority on anything except his own opinion. Sigh—and I really wanted to enjoy this book.
Lots of books lots of time. I love all things Star Wars and fantasy. The Bartimaeus trilogy (or quad) maybe the perfect series. Jonathan Stroud and Douglas Adams are my heroes.
Sure, I love logic and the idea of religion as a tautology, but Dawkins doesn't need to curse to prove a point. I full understand that this is Penn's MO, I just feel that I could and would consider his arguments more fully, like those of Hitch's or Sam Harris's, is he learned to speak.
Nope Penn is funny and smart.
He love of the topic, years of experience, and passion.
No, who wants to watch Penn 30 feet tall? Isn't he big enough?
First, although I am familiar with him as a performer.
Kind of a rambling, incohesive group of essays ... So a sequel could only be more of the same.
If you're already a fan, you are used to Penn's squeaky, rushed, loud voice. If you've heard his rants before,this will be familiar, although boring at times. If you're looking for much connected to the TITLE, you'll be disappointed.
I love movies and I am trying to translate that into reading. Humor, action, adventure....With an infant constantly attatched to me, audio books are my saving grace!
Totally. Fu*****. Awesome.
You know how sometimes when an author writes a sequil to a series it just doesnt live up to how maazing the first book was? Well that is NOT the case here! Penn knocked it out of the park again and I was hanging on every word.
Just tell the story without the profanity laced throughout. Most of which didn't even make sense in the context. He was just swearing to swear
I have but it was only a four-minute preview. I had no idea this book was going to be as offensive as it was from the preview I listened to.
All of the references of his public nudity and all of the unnecessary profanity.
I can't imagine anyone, except maybe his wife, who would care to see Penn Jillette in the nude.
The profanity was really over done, it didn't even make sense in most cases, it was just there for shock value.
It would be nice if Penn saw this review, got in touch with me and offered me a refund.
