It’s not often a book comes out that has the potential to change a movement over the coming decade. Hemant Mehta has just released The Young Atheist’s Survival Guide and it is very much that type of work that will make a difference in the coming years. Atheism is on the ascent in no other demographic as powerfully as it is with the youngest Americans. Not only are young atheists hungry for ways to become better secular activists, more and more adults are wondering what they can do to help the next generation.
I was fortunate enough to get to read the advance copy of the book. Not only does Hemant’s work contain a wealth of reasons to care perhaps a bit more about upcoming activists, for their circumstances are usually much more difficult than those of activist adults, it also has the answers for young and old alike on how to better serve the youth atheist movement. If you care about changing the country in favor of secularism, seriously, read this book. Hemant has done our movement proud with it.
You can get the kindle version for a limited time for $2.99. The book is worth way more than that. The print version is on its way.
