Firebrand atheism.... It's in here. I've been reluctant to call myself an atheist, but this book has changed my mind.
I'm an atheist. Period.

Although, in my 30 years of atheism, I have never been Silverman's "firebrand" type of atheist ("loud and proud"), never sure that pride is actually a good thing, and never wanting to be the "dick" that Silverman says comes with being a firebrand, I have to say he makes a compelling case for that sort of activism.
It seems clear to me that the promotion and growth of atheism among freethinking people is a great thing for society. I find Silverman's description of the effectiveness of his brand of activism with American Atheists in this regard to be convincing. He backs this up with facts and figures from what sound like more or less scientific studies.
Although, I haven't yet had a chance to check any of those sources. If indeed they can be taken at face value, then I think I love American Atheists.
