Atheist Mind, Humanist Heart asks an essential question for the 45 million Americans who self-identify as nonreligious: "So, you don't believe in God; now what?" This question is increasingly important, as one-third of young adults under the age of 30 consider themselves nonreligious. With a scientific eye and an empathetic heart, the authors turn conventional perceptions about atheism on their head. They show that atheism need not be reactionary (against religion and God), but rather that it can offer a clear set of constructive principles to live by, which establish atheism as a positive worldview.
Following a philosophical approach grounded in logic and evidence, Bayer and Figdor take listeners on an inspiring journey to discover how to live a reasonable, ethical, and happy life without God. The listeners are engaged at every step, encouraged to self-reflect, and ultimately uncover their own set of personal beliefs.

"good info...little too much detail"
i recommend it even though they dive a bit too deep into the reasons for the morality they came up with
"Loved it! Accessible and thought provoking. "
This book accessible and thought provoking. Not just another book on why God is unlikely to exist, but rather a guide on how to think about leading a good life without needing to rely on God and religion as a North star.
"An intellectual examination of ethics and values"
This was a good listen that helped me to put into words my thoughts about values, God or the lack thereof, and my own ethical behavior.
If you have been an atheist for any length of time, or read any otber book on tbe topic, this book offers nothing new.
