Dan is an APPA  (American Philosophical Practitioners Association) certified philosophical counselor who offers philosophical advice services to help people work through the philosophical aspects of their practical problems or to work out their views on philosophical issues. (You can read examples of Dan’s advice here.) Through his blogging, his online teaching, and his philosophical advice services each, Dan specializes in helping people who have recently left a religious tradition work out their constructive answers to questions of ethics, metaphysics, the meaning of life, etc. as part of their process of radical worldview change.

    Not to be a spoilsport, but this is a copyrighted work. Those who honor Hitch’s memory and estate will purchase the audiobook from Audible or Amazon.

      Or borrow it from a library. Or from a friend.

      (You seriously think he’d rather people miss out unless they want to purchase it, until it enters the public domain?)

      As I understand it, YouTube flags videos that violate copyright and alerts copyright holders and so if something stays up despite copyright violation we can infer that whoever holds the copyright has judged it more in their interests to have what’s up on YouTube there than to have it taken down.

      And, ethically, in either case, I don’t know how more exposure of one’s work is in the long run unprofitable to one’s “franchise”. Whoever will profit off of Hitchens in the future will be well-served by this moment being as Hitchens saturated as possible.

    I’ve got the dead tree version, that very same cover.

    I DL’ed the Audible version onto my iPod right after it was released. It is a remarkable recording. I was totally absorbed in it from beginning to end. Will re-listen sometime soon.
