This paperback book is sort of a condensed version of Warren Smith's huge tome, Who's Who in Hell. with a focus on celebrities such as Woody Allen, Katherine Hepburn, Andy Rooney, George Clooney and many, many others. The style is quite witty and there is lots of dish on the "damned" famous people. You can open to any page and have a good time, especially if you are a freethinker! Religious fundamentalists will probably want to avoid this book, unless they want to learn about famous people who they believe are destined for the infernal regions.
Like they say, heaven for the climate, hell for the company!

Allen has done a great job of seeking out quotes from celebrities showing their alignment with rationalism, and it's a refreshing visit with people we may not have thought of as free-thinkers. If you are a religious abstainer, you'll be encouraged by the number of others who share your views. And if you're a fundamentalist, you'll be pleased to identify a group you know will, for all eternity, be cast into a lake of fire for their base apostasy, heresy, blashemy, and infidelity.

A satisfying read either way.

I found this book to be interesting even though I disagree with every worldview expressed in the book. I checked it out because I was curious to see more about how some famous celebrities see themselves, their purpose, and their place in this world. Its very reflective of our post-modernist culture, and the quotes from the book are a very diverse cross-section of atheistic, humanistic, and universalist views.

I naively assumed every important person was into religion. When they die, they're always seen in funerals held in churches.
This book, however, lists dozens of inspiring leaders in show business (Bjork, Brando, Clooney, Dietrich, Garofalo, Crichston, Alan Cumming, even Michael Musto!) who are Ethical Culturists, freethinkers, secular humanists, Unitarians, who are not into organized religion. The title, in short, means the good guys are in Hell except Hell is a theological invention.

Culled from Warren Smith's huge 'Who's Who In Hell', this focuses on celebrities and others in show business and in the arts who are non-believers, Freethinkers, Humanists, etc.
A fascinating and entertaining reference work, full of interesting facts and details.
