I just finished the book, "How to Become a Really Good Pain In The Ass".

I just finished and really enjoyed the book "How to Become a Really Good Pain In The Ass". It brought me back to my college days of hanging out in the student lounge with my philosophy professors. It is a combination of a basic philosophy 101 combined with a good English lesson on how to make an argument in clear and concise language. Ultimately, I felt that this book was preaching to the choir in my case.  I could not find much to argue with and have been in agreement with this view point since childhood. It seems more like a book to recommend to someone who is still sitting on the fence about believing in a higher power. I would consider handing it to any teenager who asks a lot of questions and it searching for definitive answers. At the end, it was interesting reading that the Big Bang may have started out as a quark fluctuation. Today, I am feeling more like a quark flatulence....back to work. Suz

Yeah? I probably don't need a book for that -- haha -- just kidding.

Thanks Suzi. Got it.  I'll let you know what I think. Appreciate the input. And now, like you, back to work for me.

Hi Pat, The book takes one through a process of answering the 5 Big Questions starting with "What Can I Know?", from the stand points of a "Naturalist Response" versus a "Supernatualist Response". It will confirm how you feel about your own views. It is worth $10 to clarify and define your opinions to others in a good argument....who doesn't like a tasty discussion now and then? Suz

Suzi, I was thinking about getting this book, and read the reviews on Amazon (through the link on this page so A|N get get a few cents).  You start out saying you really enjoyed it, then  recommended it for a teenager.  Myself, I've been a "dyed in the wool" atheist for several decades, and haven't seen my teenage years since the 1960's.  Do you think it's worth the $10.00 to download it to my Kindle? And if I do, and don't like it, I promise I'll eat the $10.00 without complaint :)
