    So this would technically be a beginner s book on common sense issues and how to think Short chapters, enjoyable read.

  2. Richard Lawrence

    This was one of those books you never want to come to an end and when it does you think of 10 people you want to gift it to Greta s narration is terrific and enhances the substance of her writing The implications of one s world view are staggering it will decide the course of the one and only life you get to live here on Earth Greta systematically parses out these implications in just about every area of life from the point of view of a worldview informed by reason and evidence This book does wh [...]

    Reading this made me feel like I could be reading an atheist bible The essays are the author s opinions, ideas, and beliefs on everyday things and how we can use them to better ourselves and the world I agreed with some of the things mentioned but others made the author seemed a tad uninformed or closed minded on topics Racism and police brutality are a big item brought up over and over again Her focus mainly only on African Americans and every now and then Trans I do believe racism is a problem [...]

    Great book Engaging and written in Greta Christina s signature conversational tone Filled with good ideas and awesome outlooks on life and love and happiness and getting along in the world Short chapters and a definite page turner I would definitely recommend this book to others and I absolutely see myself rereading it.

    This book might be good for teens or young adults who are trying to understand atheism, be it their own non spiritual journey or that of a friend family member But as an atheist who already has her own thoughts, this book didn t benefit me Though the author and I agree quite a bit, I would ve done this differently She does include some great quotes, tho.

  7. Renia Carsillo

    If you are new to Atheism, ignore the blurb for this book and skip it It s likely to overwhelm you.I really wanted to like this book The title is cute and I m a fan of the author s activism work Unfortunately, the overwhelming feeling of being preached stayed with me through every single one of these rambling essays The book isn t cohesive, seems like it would be terribly overwhelming for someone just emerging from religion, and carries what seems like an unnecessary trigger warning at the begin [...]
