Review

Good

  • The book has several detailed descriptions of the more bizarre beliefs that people hold like the Appalachian snake handlers, the Mormons and their magical underwear, and many others.

Bad

  • Although they're fitting the cheek of the book, I'm not a huge fan of Vincent Deporter's illustrations.
  • Like Deconverted: A Journey From Religion to Reason, this book doesn't indent paragraphs and uses full line-breaks between each, which is distracting to read.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
