I have finally received my book today, De Converted: A Journey from Religion to Reason by Seth Andrews aka The Thinking Atheist. I ordered this in December a little before Christmas and I am so happy it has arrived and you can start getting really jealous in a minute because I was lucky enough to get it signed with a personalised note from the man himself!!!
I will include pictures at the end of this blog entry but I wanted to do a first review on the book as is. At the moment it is available on Amazon in paperback, Kindle and audiobook format. I will add the links below. I originally ordered the book from The Thinking Atheist website. It is very easy to order from this website (even for international orders such as ones I place myself).
I was impressed with the envelope packaging. With air mail sometimes the item inside can get damaged but the envelope had a lot of cushion inside protecting the book. The book itself feels really nice and looks very professional. I love the design of the front cover with The Thinking Atheist logo prominently displayed. On the back with the obligatory blurb that outlines what the book is about, it is short and to the point. To the side of the blurb is a picture of Seth Andrews.
On a side note, for ages I always wondered what Seth looked like before he came out from behind the wall of internet radio for us all to see him. I laugh at what I thought now but I thought he always looked like a guy with long brown hippy like hair, glasses, tall and lanky! Kind of hippy circa 1960 kind of dude! (My mind is in a world of its own!)
So this book is essentially one man’s journey from believer to unbeliever. My only concern is that it is one guy’s story in 183 pages, is that enough? I do hope so and all the reviews that I have read so far suggest that this is a cracking read so I better get on with it!
