This is, at its very core, a call to action for secular Americans. Faircloth presents his idea for a secular America and his passion for reinstating the Jefferson & Madison wall between church and state to its original glory, lays out his argument, and calls for every agnostic, atheist, and on-the-fence American to act.

There are no piles of facts or extensive citations of studies. The book is under 200 pages long and Faircloth presents his arguments succinctly. If you are aiming to persuade theists to question their own beliefs, this is not the book. Faircloth has obviously aimed this book at devoted secularists to bring them together united under a feasible plan.

It's not brilliant. There is nothing truly life-changing in this book and, if you're knowledgeable and pay attention to politics and the actual workings of this country, there will be no surprises in Faircloth's book. But it is a good read and, since it's under 200 pages, it's a fast one. He outlines a clear and concrete mission for secularists to bring America back to a country of innovation and evolution and away from dogmatic suppression.
