This review is from: Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday!: More Magical Tales from the Bestselling Author of God, No! (Kindle Edition)
I read God No! and was waiting with bated breath for this book, and Penn does not disappoint. I dabbled with Atheism for a long time, but was always struggling with the part of life that religion seems to have the market on, joy and happiness. Penn does a good job of showing how being a non-believer makes you cherish life, family, and every day we have on earth.
Though this book does talk about non-belief, this book is mostly about stories. Stories about show business, stories about life, and stories about joy. Penn does a great job at all of that, and reaches the audience. You genuinely feel the joy he has in life, for his family, for his parents, and for his children.
His stories, though sometimes meandering, are wonderful to read and leave you in stitches. I laughed right out of the box when he told his story of dressing up as a racist ghost (really just a bed sheet, but it resembled a KKK outfit). It made me want to go and give my son a hug when he told of his daughter recognizing him at the school, "that's my daddy!" despite being dressed up in costume. It truly showed the human side of Penn and of the love he has for life and family.
A wonderful read for fans of Penn and Teller, for hardcore atheists, and for those who don't want to admit it yet. You'll find your own joy reading it, just as sure as I did.
