Got a nice customer review on Amazon for Coming Out Atheist: How To Do It, How to Help Each Other Do It, And Why! Five stars out of five. (In fact, the book now has five customer reviews — and they’re all five stars out of five!) Here’s what Judy had to say:
If you’re looking over these reviews – You Need This Book.
From page one you’ll be drawn in to this easy read about how and why to come out as (you can pick any non-believer word you want) atheist, agnostic, freethinker, skeptic, humanist, etc. She lays out exactly why this is so important not only to you, but also in our country right now, and helps every level of reader, in whatever situation they find themselves, to better consider coming out as atheist. She helps the reader judge whether it’s appropriate, and gives what seem like hundreds of actual stories to back up what she says. (Maybe it is hundreds.) The consensus is that coming out helps people live happier lives, despite some rough seas at first. It’s worth it in most cases, though she does address situations where people might not want to come out for their own good. Her writing is well rounded to address everyone in a variety of scenarios.
She helps those who are confused about feeling a mismatch with their religion, with those who are afraid of the “a-word” (atheist), and those who are just curious about atheism. Her writing style invites you to feel like you’re sitting down over drinks in a private booth somewhere, talking frankly with someone who has the case studies in hand. She never gets technical or statistical, but always is informative in a relatable way.
As I said in the title, if you’re looking over these reviews, this book is for you. That’s why you’re here. I have whole bookshelves of atheist books, but hardly any on the topic of coming out, and not many as easily read and clearly stated. The topic is timely, and she does it well.
Thanks, Judy! And if any of you have read Coming Out Atheist, it’d be awesome if you’d post a review.
