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.

    "Don't let the atheism put you off"

    I hesitated to buy this book, fearing it would be a screed on atheism. It's not. It's thoughtful, provocative, funny, engaging and searingly honest.

    For someone who makes his living "deceiving" people, Penn is astonishingly candid about himself and his life. I first got to know him watching The Celebrity Apprentice, where he appeared to me to be the quintessential nice guy. This book goes a long way to explainging why. Jillete is the poster boy for integrity. Love him or hate him, you have to admire that he lives his life with true purpose, real joy and brutal self examination.

    I'm not a hippie. I disagree with some of his views and God knows I couldn't - wouldn't - live my life as he lives his, but I celebrate that this world has room for both of us. I celebrate that someone can create such magic and joy and not be caught up in the celebrity bullshit that so many in entertainment do.

    I wish I knew Penn - I find him fascinating. He's one of the rare ones who could discuss differing beliefs without resorting to name calling and dismissive rhetoric. He is a rare bird in this world - a truly authentic human being.

    "Another great book of stories of Pen's adventures"
    What made the experience of listening to Every Day is an Atheist Holiday! the most enjoyable?

    Penn is a very good speaker, he is funny and does very well, especially reading his own words.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Penn, of course.


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

    He reads it as he wrote it, so there isn't any question of what parts are meant to be read sarcastically.


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

    Tales of the Magical Atheist. ;)


    Any additional comments?

    A great book all around. Be aware there is a lot of foul language, as that is how Penn talks. If you have no idea about his style of talking or what this book is like, i recommend checking out his podcast, it's essentially the same thing but with different topics and in shorter form. So if you like "Penn's Sunday School" then you'll love this!

    "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.
