Review:

'This slim, attractively produced volume will amuse nonbelievers - and, ironically, cause them to spend hours reading about God and religion.' --The Boston Globe

'If atheism's going 'mass' you need not only a sacred text but an easily portable one.' --Philadelphia Inquirer

'A collection of 'irreverant thoughts' from notable atheists... There's rather a lot of Arthur C Clarke and Woody Allen. But then there would be.'(4 stars) --Time Out
