    "From religious to reason."

    This book helped me solidarity what I've always known. I'm looking forward to his next books. As I learn more, I feel like a spell is being lifted.

    "A good introduction to atheism and logic."
    Any additional comments?

    The narration by Dave Richards is good but I would have liked it if he spoke just a bit more slowly.

    Armin has done a very good job of outlining and explaining the reasons why there is no god in a succinct, direct and easy to understand manner. I recommend this book to believers, non-believers and everyone in-between and around the edges. Love, Peace and Happiness to you all!

    "Entertaining listen. Loved the narration."

    Loved the length of this book. Nothing was drawn out. Very efficient at making its many important points. And funny! The narrator was perfect for the topic. He did incredulity quite well and at several points I had a good laugh. Highly recommend for anyone.

    "A debate playbook"
    Any additional comments?

    When debating god's existence or lack thereof, things are bound to devolve quickly into a subjective mess. Most often, this can be attributed to the lack of a common framework (i.e. language) accepted by all of the debating sides. This book, seeks to provide such a framework, by way of rebutting 20 of the most common arguments for the existence of god, and it does so in a lighthearted fashion. The book can also be thought of as an introductory reading into the contentious subject, and as a refresher course for those who want to revisit many of its basics.

    "Great Narration and Inspiring Story"

    Great arguments, non-confrontational rebuttals to common atheist misconceptions. Great for repeated listening. Recommend for all.

    "Simple responses or complex ones. Both are given!!"

    I have read many looks like this. Most try to go way over the top with in depth and complex explanations. I really enjoyed that the author offers a very down to earth, common sense explanation first that anybody could use in an argument and then he offers more depth and detail to elaborate.
    The pacing of the book is fairly quick and I found myself pausing it a lot and rewinding to digest what he said. I don't think that's a bad thing because this book is crammed full of so much information I simply didn't want to miss anything.
    There were several other arguments I had read in other books and I was glad to not see them repeated here.
    I recommend this book to anybody who is willing to take an honest look at their religion or anyone who has already decided to step away.

    "Exactly What I Was Looking For"

    This book is excellent, not overly complicated and helps to better equip atheists with the tools they need when discussing with theists the reasons why they no longer, or never have, believed. Can't wait for the next two books.

    Also, his personal story towards the end of the book is truly inspiring.

    "One of the best...."

    I have read and studied from many books on the subject of atheism. I found this one to be one well balanced, well thought out books of its kind. It is written in a manner where anyone can easily understand his given premise and direction without taking offense to any of his subject matter; assuming the reader has an open mind. In this regard I sincerely look forward to his two upcoming works as well.

    "A little jewel among atheist books."

    There are many books on the topic of atheism and god, yet this one sets apart for its simplicity, its honesty and to the point style. It is very hard to be precise on the topic (there is always the temptation to express ,ore than what is necessary) but Armin has made a very good work. I would recommend this quick read/listen (audiobook in my case) to any person willing to know a little bit more about atheism and the way it looks the world.

    "Good Summay poor narration"
    If you could sum up Why There Is No God in three words, what would they be?

    God exists in people's minds


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not relevant


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He went too fast, sounded like reaing the news - no time to digest what is said - a book like this should be at least 4 hours naration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Good book - good summary and very wise reasoning and insights

    "Looking forward to hearing more from the Author"

    For any Atheist looking for a good way to articulate your arguments then this book is for you. I'd advise Theists to read the book as well in order to understand the way in which Atheists think and how disbelief comes about. The narrator did a good job overall but sounded a bit too monotone for my liking.

    "A common sense approach to the God hypothesis"

    This is filled with a common sense approach to the god question.

    Very easy to listen to.

    Highly recommend for those considering why it is that some people still believe in gods and for those theists who are trying to understand the considered position of atheism.

    The author effectively succeeds in demonstrating why there are no good reasons to believe in gods.

    "Straight to the point"

    Very useful book that gets the point out logically and efficiently. I think the author's story is worth reading first and it might have been even better if the author had narrated.

    "Very pleased with content and narrator."

    the simple arguments made were concise and very well laid out. this is a light hearted and logically flowing book. a pleasure to listen to the narration for me, i thought this was a good balance between informative and entertaining to hear such common fallasies obliterated so eloquently.. although for some readers it may appear self righteous, i thought it was fine. look forward to reading (or listening to) his other books.

    "A great introduction to the arguments against god."

    I think this is a great book for those of use who know why we don't believe in god but are not very good at articulating it to people in discussions on the subject. It gives clear, concise answers and information which can be easily understood..

    The only negative is that the narration was a bit rushed.

    "speedy gongalez-no way!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes-if I knew they were an atheist like me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The breakdown of the arguments.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dave Richards’s performances?

    No way-I reduced the narrator speed on my Fire!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No-it benefits from contemplation and reflection not speed.


    Any additional comments?

    Like a previous reviewer wrote, this would have benefited with a slower reading!

    "A very enlightening book"

    l really enjoyed this book, having only in recent years set aside my indoctrinated past and dared to think objectively and to doubt all that is instilled into most of us as children.
    I would urge anyone who has "doubt " to give this book a try.
