Across the Atlantic, the book has been heavily criticized on Amazon.com because it is no more than a collection of some of the Pharyngula blog posts, with no original material. As one who, over the years, has bought -- among many others -- collections of Clive James's TV reviews, Steve Bell's cartoons and Jeremy Clarkson's rants, I am obviously unfazed to have bought a collection of blog posts, printed and bound. However, the Myers book nowhere acknowledges that it IS a selected collection of blog posts. They appear undated and without any introductory comments. This results in a set of "take-it-or-leave-it" essays that risk being described as disjointed. There IS a flow to the order in which the posts appear, but I feel they'd have benefitted greatly from some sort of annotation. Apart from 7 pages of introduction (surely this was the place to explain that the book is a compilation of blog posts) there is no new material. There are no preludes to the posts/essays and no follow-ups (Myers' website is awash with comments from its readers, many of which would have made entertaining addenda to each item).Read more ›
This book is incredible as it has none of that. It's almost as if someone took Dawkins most mean-spirited segments, somehow combined them with the DNA of some disgusting blogger creating some abomination then forced it at gunpoint to copulate with a rather ugly gerbil. Paul Myers is the fruit of that fateful gerbil insemination experiment it seems and with his little blogging pals he has managed somehow to produce a handy collection of his favourite blogs. They're handy if you want waste your time and money that is.
My advice is if you are going to study a subject you like is, perhaps don't get drunk and order books on said subject because you may not be making the best decisions. If I were to summarise my thoughts on The Happy Atheist I'd say this, I'd rather read a gas bill written in my cats entrails on the burned out wreckage of my car while oompa loompas jab my balls with ice picks.

I don't own this book, buying instead Hirsi Ali's Nomad, but I convinced a friend to buy it used. I haven't read all of it only parts. Read morePublished on 19 Oct. 2013 by M. D.
I bought this book as a possible toilet reader, thinking it might be fun to have short essays to dip in and out of on visits to the throne, and to be hyperbolic I'd suggest this... Read morePublished on 19 Aug. 2013 by Occam's Whetstone
