My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I wanted to like this book a lot more than I did.

For example, I thought his suggestion that atheists could engage in an annual drunken orgy based on the medieval Feast of Fools free of personal repercussions or consequences to be, well, a little impractical.

But still, I can’t argue that reflection, meditation, and fellowship are fine attributes that don’t need to be restricted to religion.
