The Atheist's Guide to Christmas is a fantastic listen that was edited by Ariane Sherine, who started the Atheist Bus Campaign in response to an evangelical Christian bus advertisement that gave the URL of a website telling non-Christians they would spend 'all eternity in torment in hell'.

With the backing of Richard Dawkins, officially supporting the UK's first atheist advertising initiative, Sherine managed to compile a wonderful concoction of the world's most entertaining writers, scientists, comedians, and philosophers to read, perform, and narrate pieces that they had all written for the print book, which was published on October 1, 2009. This audio version is magnificent! It's funny, uplifting, and is read by all of the book's contributors, including Derren Brown, Richard Dawkins, Mitch Benn, Ben Goldacre, Simon Le Bon, Charlie Brooker, and David Baddiel.

    " not as fluffy as cover suggests , worth a read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 2/11/2011

    " Good, but a bit of a self fulfilling prophesy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 2/4/2011

    " I'm not a big fan of collections of essays, but some of them were very funny. It was only 99 cents, so I downloaded it for some easy holiday reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/27/2010

    " A nice celebration of Christmas for those of us who aren't religious. Makes you appreciate the joy in the season. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 12/11/2010

    " Hilarious in the beginning, rather boring in the middle, improving near the end. Many British references to customs, songs, movies, etc. will leave American readers wondering. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 11/14/2010

    " Really excellent and fun read! Not all what I expected it to be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aline | 8/22/2010

    " A series of short essays - some funny, some thoughtful, some well a bit boring and worthy. Worth asking for from your local library, at least ;) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Casper | 6/28/2010

    " sadly this is awful. a collection of essays to bad to publish if they weren't given away for charity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Iain | 1/16/2010

    " This is a collection of short essays by famous atheists, including the likes of Richard Dawkins, Derren Brown & Phil Plait. The essays look at a variety of Christmas topics, from an atheist point of view. Funny, warm, and very entertaining. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Krzysztof | 1/6/2010

    " Very Britain-centric. Most of the chapters are weak, sometimes with no connection to Christmas. If you expect a though-provoking lecture, I suggest something else. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 1/5/2010

    " A fantastic compilation of 42 essays. The ones by the actors and comedians were the best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victor | 12/16/2009

    " Christmas is a celebration for all people. Its a period of time for family and friends to meet and celebrate life. In no way is a christian holiday. Should be celebrated by believers and non-believers "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cestmoitom | 12/2/2009

    " Because of it's many authors you learn a own range of things. It goes into detail on christmas, skepticism, atheism, the universe, life experiences and lots of laughs along the way. "
