An excellent overview of atheism.

There is always a tendency to project in a review, what you wish a book was rather then review what the book actually is. That's my dilemma here. I wish this book went into more detail and gave extra examples and maybe just provided a little more depth. That said, it's a very short book and it's very concisely illustrates all of the major reasons why people disbelief.

My only other criticism was that the reader seemed to rush (at least that is how it sounded to me). I read audiobooks constantly due to a hand problem that makes holding a book for prolonged periods painful. Thus I am very familiar with audiobooks and feel qualified to comment on this point. I just felt like he sounded rushed.

Overall, it's an excellent overview and I would recommend it to anyone looking to understand atheism or anyone questioning their own fair or lack thereof.

The Best HandBook for any developing mind

What made the experience of listening to Why There Is No God the most enjoyable?

The point to point reasoning and logic of each line is perfect for me because it hit every single rebuttal i have ever heard from a christian or muslim i have argued against although i have many of my own refutes against their ill conceived logic this gave me so many more.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Why There Is No God?

The most memorable part of the book probably had to be the parts of how religious people can stay religious even while they have doubts and real life understanding. I have always been confused about this and it always angered me to think about logical and reasonable people that i know that are still religious; but this gave me an insight that thoroughly explained it and i can now be more empathetic with my theist friends.


What about Dave Richards’s performance did you like?

it was a tad robotic lol and i can imagine if i had one of my theist friends listen to it they would be able to understand it but it wouldn't surprise me if someone thought that's the way all atheists are. Robotic and logical


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

Yes it was although to retain it better i will be listening many more times.


Any additional comments?

Awesome book I'm so glad people like you are out in the world as well because although i know I'm not alone in my atheism i do feel lonely when i look at my friends and recognize I'm the only atheist but books like these remind me that i'm not unique nor am i alone in my disbelief.
