First edition US hardcover.

The Happy Heretic is a non-fiction book written by Judith Hayes and published on 2000-06-01.

I bought this book at a CFI convention because I wanted to expand my knowledge of women in the skeptical and atheist movements.

Status

I own a first edition hardcover.

Review

Good

  • Hayes records a lot of the constant hypocrisy around religious preaching piety and being terrible.

  • I don't care much for the satire articles. Religions have plenty of ridiculous ideas without having to make up new ones.
  • I don't like how the satire articles are intermixed in with the serious articles without an obvious indication.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
