Publisher's Summary

Why are atheists angry? Is it because they're selfish, joyless, lacking in meaning, and alienated from God? Or is it because they have legitimate reasons to be angry - and are ready to do something about it? Armed with passionate outrage, absurdist humor, and calm intelligence, popular blogger Greta Christina makes a powerful case for outspoken atheist activism, and explains the empathy and justice that drive it. This accessible, personal, down-to-earth book speaks not only to atheists, but also to believers who want to understand the so-called new atheism.

Why Are You Atheists So Angry? drops a bombshell on the destructive force of religious faith - and gives a voice to millions of angry atheists.

What the Critics Say

"I found this book informative and enraging! Leave it to Greta to inform and elucidate like no other. I highly recommend this book to everyone, everywhere. And I hope never to get Greta angry at me. :)" (David Silverman, President, American Atheists)

"Greta Christina’s analysis of religion is acute and witty, and at the same time fair and compassionate. And I'm jealous: I sure wish I could write as well as she does." (Alan Sokal, Professor of Physics, New York University)

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Not really,it's a little repetitive, but that's normal in this kind of book and subject.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Why Are You Atheists So Angry??

    The 99 initial reasons.


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

    It's consistent and helps to organize thoughts better.


    Do you think Why Are You Atheists So Angry? needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I suppose there can be many dealing with different concrete problems.

    Story
    "more rant than informative"

    I was hoping to find something more informative here, but all the material seemed to be a rehashing of Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens. Lacked any real intellectual value which is why I suspect she is a pod caster. that said I still agree with her position, even if some of her justifications are weak.

    "Compassion and a desire for justice for others"

    A thoughtful and rational guide to atheism.
    Easy to digest.
    Atheism's well put and simple and softly spoken. I can 'carry iit' as my Big Stick

    "Perfectly expresses my own frustrations."

    I've listened to Dawkins and Hitchens. I've enjoyed Krauss and Dennit. But Greta is the first Atheist who mirrors my own feelings. excellent.

    "Couldn't have said it better"

    Greta offers great reasons for anger and activism, for coming out as an atheist and countering religion. I deeply respect her and her writings.

    Work swing, listen to audio books while I work. Never been a reader, but listening has become an addiction. Fantasy with great narration!

    "Just not very good"

    The narrator was just not very fun or captivating. Seemed to angry, straight obnoxious.

    "Everything I've said and then some"

    This is a *must read* for atheists, theists, and on-the-fencers. If you're religious and have ever wondered why we atheists are so angry, read or listen to this book. If you are an atheist and have trouble articulating your reasons for being angry, read or listen to this book; it will help you state your argument better.
