"Why Are You Atheists So Angry?" Audiobook Now Available!

The audiobook edition of my new book, Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless, is now available! And you can still get it in print and ebook formats, too!

The audiobook version of Why Are You Atheists So Angry? is now available at Audible, iTunes, and Amazon. And yes, I did the recording for it! Doing the recording sessions was big fun, and with a book like this, I think it makes a big difference having the audio edition read in the author’s voice.

Ebook editions are still available in several formats: the Kindle edition is available on Amazon, the Nook edition is available at Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords has the book in multiple formats, including iBooks, Sony Reader, Kobo, Kindle (.mobi), Stanza, Aldiko, Adobe Digital Editions, any other reader that takes the Epub format, Palm Doc (PDB), PDF, RTF, Online Reading via HTML, and Plain Text for either downloading or viewing. All ebook editions and formats cost just $7.99.

The print edition is currently available through the Richard Dawkins Foundation bookstore, and can also be ordered directly from the publisher, Pitchstone Publishing — they’ll ship in early August. You can also pre-order the print edition through Amazon — but Amazon and most other retailers won’t have the book until the fall. The print edition is $14.95 USD.

Here is the description, and some wonderfully flattering blurbs. Thanks for supporting the book — and if you like it, please tell your friends!


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 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.

“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

“Greta has done something truly impressive with this book: She explains in a calm, reasonable, and thoughtful way exactly why she’s a pissed-off, angry atheist. She’s not alone, though, and it’s not only other atheists who will agree with her. In fact, I *dare* religious people to read this book and not come away furious at the often awful impact faith has had on the world, even if they don’t believe they’re responsible for it. I may be a ‘friendly atheist’ online, but Greta definitely speaks for me in this book.”
-Hemant Mehta, Friendly Atheist, author of I Sold My Soul on eBay

“You should read it, it’s fabulous and ferocious.”
-PZ Myers, Pharyngula

“If only more people could channel their anger into something so inspiring! Greta Christina has written the perfect book for anyone who wonders about the true impact of religious dogma on women’s health, gay rights, science education, and the daily lives of those who have no faith. Her concluding chapter, which contains solid advice for how to make a positive change in the world, will ensure that you’ll have an outlet for all that rage you’ll build up by the end of the book. Trust me — you’ll need it.”
-Rebecca Watson, Skepchick.org

“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 book offers a passionately lucid explanation of the reasons for atheist anger and its connection to the energy behind all movements for social justice. It is both informative and inspiring.”
-Ophelia Benson, Butterflies and Wheels

“They say if you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. Well, Greta Christina is definitely paying attention — and in this book, she delivers a clean, bracing blast of atheist anger, like a refreshing cool breeze in a stifling hothouse of faith, that offers compelling reasons why all rational people of conscience should oppose religion and the harm it does.”
-Adam Lee, Daylight Atheism

“Greta Christina is one of the best writers on religion out there, period. I’ve been waiting for this book for a long time.”
-Chris Hallquist, The Uncredible Hallq

“This just became my number-one book to recommend to all believers and new atheists alike. I thought the field of atheist literature was all just rehashing the same stuff by now. But this is an original, visceral, and ultimately complete defense of not just atheist outrage, but atheism itself. Greta sticks to the undeniable facts-on-the-ground and articulates it all correctly and well, heading off every possible rebuttal with brilliant economy. She never gets bogged down in abstract philosophy, yet still hits every key abstract point, leaving you by the end with no rational reason not to agree, and finally kick to the curb that useless old religion, or get off your bum and really do something for the cause.”
-Dr. Richard Carrier, author of Sense and Goodness without God

    Thank you so much for doing the audiobook. I had bought the Kindle edition, but listening to the artificial voice is nothing at all like listening to a human reader. I need proper pronunciation, phrasing and emphasis in order to understand and enjoy a book.

    I am going to buy the audiobook right now. Thanks again for including me.

    I purchased and downloaded my copy this weekend, and have a cross-country trip coming up in a couple days that will be perfectly suited to listening to this; I can’t wait.

    Also, I agree, Greta, that it’s always best to hear a book in the author’s actual voice. Thank you for taking the time to do the recording.

    I’ve read and highly recommend the kindle version, but I’ll definitely get the audio version too when my audible credits turn up. Especially since Greta herself did the narration. Like her, I think it’s a big bonus when the author reads her own work.

    Thanks for doing this, Greta, it will make my commute almost bearable for a little while 🙂

    Echoing what Stella said. As another of your blind readers, I shall invest in the audio version of this when I reread it in the future. Thanks for including me too. I shall suggest my local braille and talking book library add this to their catalogue.

    Thanks also for using smashwords to distribute the ebook. As someone who relies on assistive technologies, their wide selection of formats made it very easy for me to have my computer read the text to me. Appreciated!

    Just a heads-up…the iTunes link in this post leads to the print version of the book, not the audiobook. I missed that and ended up downloading the former thinking I was getting the latter. The print version is $7.99 and the audiobook is $16.95.

    This is good news! Reading the Kindle edition, I felt that, given the style in which it was written, it would work particularly well in spoken form.

    Today I listened to the audiobook and loved it. Imagine my horror when I rushed home and couldn’t find the resource guide pdf anywhere on Audible!

    Is it just me? Conspiracy? Mix-up? Lazy coding from Amazon? Do you have the ability to post a link here?
