What? ANOTHER atheist book? Jeezus.

Inevitably, I have to talk about my book.

Most books on the subject address the WHY of atheism, this one deals with the HOW.  How to be, how to think, like an atheist.

Here’s a chapter on the subject of morality: Good Without Gods

More about the book here, and several nice reviews on the Amazon page.

(And yes, that’s me on the cover, riding the bull. Badly.)

Published late last year, it’s been pretty well received.

Greta Christina (!) reviewed it warmly:

For anyone — believer or atheist — who thinks atheism is only for a formally educated elite because the hoi polloi ‘need’ religion, this book is absolutely mandatory. Knock that idea out of your head right now — Hank Fox is as passionate and unapologetic about his atheism as Richard Dawkins. And his writing is smart, clear, straightforward, and often drop-dead funny. Red Neck, Blue Collar, Atheist is a pleasure and a page-turner: I got lots of good new ideas from it, and new ways of looking at well-traveled godless terrain. Bravo.

There’s even a sales-pitchy YouTube video. About the video … ahem. In my defense I can only say:

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Oh lordy that was hilarious. You certainly sold me. I’ll have to pick up the book! As a wannabe author myself, I have to ask which of the purchasing options gives you the most in the end?

    • Anonymous Atheist

      Buying an e-book version (B&N Nook, which is currently saying to me “NOOKbook (eBook) – not available”, and the ‘coming soon’ Amazon Kindle version) will generally provide the most to the author, when you have that option.

      Buying the physical version directly from the author would generally provide the next-most to the author, more than buying it from any retailer.

      Depending on how the physical versions are being printed, buying it from Amazon might be providing more to the author than buying it from B&N, or they might be providing the same amount.

    That was hilarious. Hank, you are the best. You put things into terms that anyone can easily understand. I have to get that book.

    You really coulda been a carnival barker – that was pretty good! Nice to see you’ve an ebook version, I’ll get mine that way…less paper laying around, keeps the wifey happier.

    Hank – I loved your book. You covered many issues without demanding that the reader become a theologian. I recommend it regularly.

    • Hank Fox

      David: Thank you! The “theologian” business, the idea that you have to become an expert on the Bible to argue with Christians, that’s always bothered me too. As a freethinker, the LAST thing I want to do is spend huge amounts of time studying THEIR holy book. There’s a whole universe of other stuff I’d rather be working to understand, or enjoying.

    Just downloaded Red Neck Blue Collar Atheist onto my e-reader, Hank. You’re in there next to Sagan, Dawkins and Jerry Coyne. If the book is half as good as your video, I’m in for a real treat.

    Don’t stop disbelievin’!

    That’s the funniest thing to come out of the United States in a long time and I should know because I’m an expert on the United States on account of me being so close to the United States and all. As a matter of fact, I could see see the United States from my porch if I had a porch and it was built atop my TV antennae mast. And facing south and it was a clear day.

    And not night.
