Alom Shaha: The Young Atheist’s Handbook

Alom Shaha is a British–Bangladeshi film-maker, science writer and unabashed atheist. In The Young Atheist’s Handbook, he argues that regardless of the strictness of the traditions you are raised in, it’s possible to live a compassionate, fulfilling, and meaningful life without God. Prepare to have your expectations challenged as Shaha explains how atheists can break free from inherited beliefs and decide for themselves what to believe and who to be. In conversation with John Safran.
