Atheism is often considered to be a negative, dark, and pessimistic belief which is characterized by a rejection of values and purpose and a fierce opposition to religion. Atheism: A Very Short Introduction sets out to dispel the myths that surround atheism and show how a life withoutreligious belief can be positive, meaningful, and moral. It also confronts the failure of officially atheist states in the Twentieth Century. The book presents an intellectual case for atheism that rests as much upon positive arguments for its truth as on negative arguments against religion.

An excellent explanation, easy to understand style and arguments.

One of the best introductions to atheism I've ever read. Concise, never prolixical, clear, with a generally informal tone and not hostile or denigrating to religion. The further reading list at the end is quite short and incomplete.
