Publisher's Summary

The easy way to understand atheism and secular philosophy. For people seeking a non-religious philosophy of life, as well as believers with atheist friends, Atheism For Dummies offers an intelligent exploration of the historical and moral case for atheism. Often wildly misunderstood, atheism is a secular approach to life based on the understanding that reality is an arrangement of physical matter, with no consideration of unverifiable spiritual forces.

Atheism For Dummies offers a brief history of atheist philosophy and its evolution, explores it as a historical and cultural movement, covers important historical writings on the subject, and discusses the nature of ethics and morality in the absence of religion. A simple, yet intelligent exploration of an often misunderstood philosophy. Explores the differences between explicit and implicit atheism. A comprehensive, readable, and thoroughly unbiased resource. As the number of atheists worldwide continues to grow, this book offers a broad understanding of the subject for those exploring atheism as an approach to living.

too liberal focused

lots of good points but very let leaning. comparing atheists to liberals as though that is naturally the best is going to lose a lot of good people

Great topic...irritating narrator

Where does Atheism for Dummies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The author's logical, non-judgmental approach to this book appeals to me. Theists and atheists alike can learn from the in-depth topic.
However, the narrator's cadence and tone grated my senses and I had to stop after less than 15 minutes.
In this case, I'll be buying the soft-back version.

Not bad at all

Rather enjoyed it. Easy listening. Would probably have been better as a physical book. Written very much from a US perspective.

Well worth a read/listen (despite the title)

What did you like most about Atheism for Dummies?

Despite having read many atheist books, this one (despite it's title) is very fresh and interesting. Doesn't merely repeat the same old arguments many books on this topic do.
