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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

She Doesn't Speak For All of Us

Seriously, this woman is not worth your time if you're an atheist with any amount of critical thinking. She exists for that segment of us that just is looking for a reason to hate. I hate those people as much as I hate fundies in other philosophical enclaves.

You can find an atheist with a love of knowledge, a sense of humor, a sense of propriety and a need for truth.

Oh wait. You can find thousands of them. You can find many of them that write books.

She's not of them.

And comparing herself to the like of Dawkins and the Hitch just makes me loathe her.

So if you aren't an atheist......she's not a good sampling

If you are......you should know better.

you are angry becuase your uninformed.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

You would enjoy this if you can't think for yourself.

What could Greta Christina have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Maybe put less time into being angry at things you don't understand.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Well informed to why people may be so smart but yet so dumb at the same time.

Any additional comments?

well done, the emotion of rage toward religion blinds the one from faith. The godless are a religion of blind. Be more happy about living for nothing I guess than living angry at thing that won't matter when your dead.

Could not get past the introduction!

What disappointed you about Why Are You Atheists So Angry??

Could not get past the reasons this Atheist was so angry! Obviously she was a former Catholic who must have had some truma in her childhood considering she spend minutes bashing catholics and only two seconds to say she is angry at "what happened on 911. Greta, please move to an athesist or muslum country if you are so angry here!!!!!!!

What do you think your next listen will be?

Probably something light and fun! Maybe a Chet and Bernie story.

How could the performance have been better?

it sounded forced.

What character would you cut from Why Are You Atheists So Angry??

The author!

Any additional comments?

Please refund my credit so I can use it for a good book! Thanks!
