Greta Christina finally published her book Why Are Atheists So Angry? 99 Thinks That Piss Off the Godless on Kindle.
Back in November, Christina gave a speech at Skepticon called “Why Are Atheists So Angry?” At the time, I did not realize she was writing a book on this topic also.
On her blog, she stated that currently her book is only on Kindle, but it will soon be in hard copy or dead tree form. The Kindle version is $7.99.
According to Christina, her book not only speaks to atheists, but also to Christians who want to understand atheists and their anger towards Christians.
This accessible, personal, down-to-earth book speaks not only to atheists, but to believers who want to understand the so-called “new atheism.” “Why Are You Atheists So Angry?” drops a bombshell on the destructive force of religious faith — and gives a voice to millions of angry atheists.
Rebecca Watson, Ophelia Benson, Hemant Mehta, and David Silverman, among others give reviews, which Christina quoted, about her book.
"Greta Christina's book offers a passionately lucid explanation of the reasons for atheist anger and its connection to the energy behind all movements for social justice. It is both informative and inspiring."
-Ophelia Benson, Butterflies and Wheels
"This just became my number-one book to recommend to all believers and new atheists alike. I thought the field of atheist literature was all just rehashing the same stuff by now. But this is an original, visceral, and ultimately complete defense of not just atheist outrage, but atheism itself. Greta sticks to the undeniable facts-on-the-ground and articulates it all correctly and well, heading off every possible rebuttal with brilliant economy. She never gets bogged down in abstract philosophy, yet still hits every key abstract point, leaving you by the end with no rational reason not to agree, and finally kick to the curb that useless old religion, or get off your bum and really do something for the cause."
-Dr. Richard Carrier, author of Sense and Goodness without God
If it is anything like her wonderful and inspiring speech at Skepticon, it is sure to be a good read.
