From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world. In this rollicking yet honest account of a godless existence, Penn takes readers on a roller coaster of exploration and flips conventional religious wisdom on its ear to reveal that doubt, skepticism, and wonder — all signs of a general feeling of disbelief — are to be celebrated and cherished, rather than suppressed. And he tells some pretty damn funny stories along the way. From performing blockbuster shows on the Vegas Strip to the adventures of fatherhood, from an ongoing dialogue with proselytizers of the Christian Right to the joys of sex while scuba diving, Jillette’s self-created Decalogue invites his reader on a journey of discovery that is equal parts wise and wisecracking. “People who say that libertarians have no heart or atheists have no soul need to read this book. Because Penn Jillette has a lot of both.” —MATT STONE and TREY PARKER, creators of South Park and the award-winning Broadway musical The Book of Mormon “There are few people in the country who question more boldly, brashly, and bravely than my friend Penn Jillette. This book is funny, provocative, and profane. But is it right? God, no!” —Glenn Beck “This planet has yielded exactly one mutual friend for Glenn Beck and me and that friend has written a brilliant book called God, No! Penn reveals ‘the big secret of magic,’ tells you why tattoos are perfect expressions of atheism and exactly what to eat when you know you’re going to vomit later.” -Lawrence O’Donnell “Penn Jillette is a twenty-first-century Lord of Misrule: big, boisterously anarchic, funny, Rabelaisian, impossible—and unique. There isn’t — couldn’t be — better not be — anybody like him.” —RICHARD DAWKINS, bestselling author of The Greatest Show on Earth and The God Delusion

    " Interesting anecdotal compilation. Compelling arguments about why one should become athiest. "

    " Penn Jillette...need I say more? "

    " I laughed, cried, got angry, and nodded my head in agreement at various points while listening to this audiobook. I also fell asleep more often than I should admit, but I blame that on the drugs as I recover from surgery. Penn, in his typical brash style, narrates a book that is half autobiography and half "introductory guide" to atheism. I don't agree with everything he wrote, but that's what makes a non-fiction book interesting, no? "

    " Let me start by saying I was a more of a fan then hater before the book, now I'm about even. Did you know Penn is friends with Joe Rogan? You'd think this book would be about atheism and penn's thought on it along with some stories from penn. I hope you realize that Penn and Howard Stern have a good background together, they have sleepovers! It's mostly outlandish and questionable stories about his sexual life that you have to challenge (he makes himself seem like an '80 tommy lee), his non-stop namedropping (briefly he states how he doesn't like namedroppers ironically), and his weekend events. Penn and one of the guys from ZZ Top are best buds, just fyi. The book is about 90% story and 10% true atheist talk (aka, atheism as a backdrop or sidenote not counted, only when he talks about atheism and his thoughts and views). Penn and Glenn Beck talk often, Glenn is such a sweet guy. This is not a book about atheism, but rather a sort of snip and paste of stories penn likes to boast about. It's 24 dollars of toilet paper to me. I like penn, but this book 250+ pages of him telling you how rich he is and how many famous friends he has. Oh, and he mentions something about atheism, but thats not the point here. Did you know Penn dated a supermodel who is amazing looking and is a freak in the sack? Now that's something to put in a book! Oh, wait, what do we have here! "
