Red Neck, Blue Collar, Atheist by Hank Fox
Red Neck, Blue Collar, Atheist: Simple Thoughts About Reason, Gods and Faith, Hank Fox. [self-published]: Hank Fox Books, 2011. e-book, 498 pps.
Hank Fox has written a most practical and excellent book. Red Neck, Blue Collar, Atheist offers up a simple autobiography and then immediately plunges into explanations sprinkled liberally with gems of wisdom. Twenty five chapters delve into such topics as morality [the thing that atheists are routinely charged with not having], what the costs are of believing, and why having "respect" for the beliefs of others isn't such a great idea after all. Along the way are easy-to-understand analogies and explanations of a few common cognitive fallacies.
sapphoq reviews says: Hank Fox is the common man's Richard Dawkins. Red Neck, Blue Collar, Atheist deserves a place along side the more scholarly atheist volumes in any freethinker's library. Highly recommended without hesitation.
