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.

    "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.

    "One of the best Audiobooks I have ever listened to"

    In terms of content, this is one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. In terms of quality of narration, its is far and away the best. Some autobiographies can be narrated by anyone, but this one was so much better because Penn was reading his own work.

    I liked this book so much that about half way into it, I purchased Penn's other book to listen to next.

    "LOVED IT!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. Even if you aren't an atheist, this book gives a nice perspective on the human condition through the eyes of a non-religious person.

    "Perfect"

    I hate the word perfect, but it really does fit. The best i could do to be critical would be to complain that the audio book doesn't have the pictures that he describes.

    "Great book from Penn!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Really great book from Penn Jillette and his reading of it is just phenomenal! If you're a fan of Penn from his Sunday School Podcast or anything else he does this book is more of his greatness!

    "Amazing!"
    Would you listen to Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! again? Why?

    Absolutely! I've listened to it twice already and will continue to listen to it over and over again. Penn could read the phone book and I would be interested.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The stories. The way Penn tells about his life, be it good or bad, is really compelling.


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

    HIS voice. I love listening to a book read by the author. They know what to punctuate and what to leave alone. It's the best experience if you can find it.

    "Entertaining, thoughtful and enlightening"
    Would you listen to Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! again? Why?

    Yes. This is definitely a book you will want to read and reread. If only for his perspective on death. I was brought to tears with the relief of understanding death in that way. Penn has a way of speaking about things that has such clarity and realness. As an atheist I appreciate getting to hear another atheist's thoughts and feelings and life experiences. He really fills a gap in the atheist community by opening up as a "normal" person (Okay. I know he's far from average, being famous and rich but he doesn't come across that way and it hasn't gone to his head). I find myself thinking on the stories that he shared in this and his previous book frequently and I'm sure I'll be reading both over and over. I highly recommend his books and his podcast!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Penn, of course!


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to have the paper copy to see the pictures but I loved hearing his description of them. It added another personal dimension to the story.
