God, No! Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales by Penn Jillette

My own strongest reaction to the book was a desire to read more about and preferably by his partner Teller. Others may disagree, and I’d completely understand if they did, but Jillettte find his repulsiveness kind of life-affirming. Haven’t done that to very many authors.
