About the book
This is a book for anyone who thinks about what they should believe and how they should live. It’s for those who may need the facts and the ideas, as well as the courage, to break free from inherited beliefs. In this powerful narrative, Alom Shaha shows that it is possible to live a compassionate, fulfilling, and meaningful life without God.
‘A book that destroys the cliche of the atheist as joyless rationalist and shows the humanity, love, and concern that often lies behind godless thinking.’ — Robin Ince, writer and comedian
“More than just a great handbook, this is an honest and often very moving story about valuing truth over hope, even in the face of grief.” — Tim Minchin, comedian
‘Illuminates the route to a better destination for all those who seek what Alom found, namely, that precious liberty of mind which makes its possessor open to all good things.’ — A.C. Grayling, philosopher and author of The Good Book

Standing at the side I saw at least six people trying to escape with blood pouring from their heads, and was shocked to see a young girl being carried out completely unconscious.
The editorials today are almost exclusively focused on the outcomes of the G20 summit and analysis of the announcements made last night regarding the stimulus plan.
Thousands of people hit the streets of central London on Saturday to demand jobs and public services for all, in the first sign of a concerted protest movement prompted by the global economic downturn.
Hundreds of Londoners living near the site of the G20 Summit will be forced to carry photo ID to get past war-zone type road blocks and return to their homes.
