Publisher's Summary

The Atheist's Guide to Christmas is a fantastic listen that was edited by Ariane Sherine, who started the Atheist Bus Campaign in response to an evangelical Christian bus advertisement that gave the URL of a website "telling non-Christians they would spend 'all eternity in torment in hell'."
With the backing of Richard Dawkins, officially supporting the UK's first atheist advertising initiative, Sherine managed to compile a wonderful concoction of the world's most entertaining writers, scientists, comedians, and philosophers to read, perform, and narrate pieces that they had all written for the print book, which was published on October 1, 2009. This audio version is magnificent! It's funny, uplifting, and is read by all of the book's contributors, including Derren Brown, Richard Dawkins, Mitch Benn, Ben Goldacre, Simon Le Bon, Charlie Brooker, and David Baddiel.

Merry X-mas

I Thought this was amusing to hear stories from the lips of the people they belong to. How Christmas effected them, changed them, and the emotion and pain that came with some on the stories were enlightening.
Those stories of the people I knew may have been more enticing then those belonging to those that I didn't know, but didn't make the stories themselves much less enjoyable.
affordable enough to get even if you don't like it.

Can’t duplicate Brit humor

Great rants from our friends across the pond. As my title implies, the Brits have a patent on very good, dry humor...and is worth the time to bask in it's glory. Recommend reading!
