    1. This book should be read right after you finish David Silverman's "Fighting God". David's book will give you every reason why you should be a firebrand atheist and Dan's book will show you how to do it. If you have wanted to become more active in advancing secular values in our society Dan's book is the place you should start. From activism on Facebook to taking on the Ken Ham's of the world this book covers the entire spectrum. Dan has a light and breezy style of writing that keeps you engaged [...]

    2. First of all the publisher put way too high of a cover price on a tiny paperback with barely over 100 pages. Secondly, I was expecting more how-to suggestions. The book was mainly about the author's successes and failures while fighting against Ken Ham's Ark Encounter. There was only one chapter with specific, how-to suggestions on protecting the wall between church and state.
