Why are atheists angry? Is it because they're selfish, joyless, lacking in meaning, and alienated from God? Or is it because they have legitimate reasons to be angry - and are ready to do something about it? Armed with passionate outrage, absurdist humor, and calm intelligence, popular blogger Greta Christina makes a powerful case for outspoken atheist activism, and explains the empathy and justice that drive it. This accessible, personal, down-to-earth book speaks not only to atheists, but also 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.

"I found this book informative and enraging! Leave it to Greta to inform and elucidate like no other. I highly recommend this book to everyone, everywhere. And I hope never to get Greta angry at me. :)" (David Silverman, President, American Atheists)
"Greta Christina's analysis of religion is acute and witty, and at the same time fair and compassionate. And I'm jealous: I sure wish I could write as well as she does." (Alan Sokal, Professor of Physics, New York University)
"Opened my eyes"
As an atheist in the UK, where it's pretty much the norm now, it opened my eyes to how far behind us the US is.
I fear for the future of that great country if they continue to alienate rational thinkers, the scientific community, and so on. We've seen the outcomes for countries who let religion colour their thinking and politics, and it is always disastrous for its citizens.
"Simply the best book on religion I've ever read"
Chapter one is:
The rest of the book is pretty good too.
A must read for atheists and the religious alike.
