Nonbeliever Nation: The Rise of Secular Americans
I ended up skimming the last half because about 90% of the information in this book was familiar to me - a consequence of having paid attention to the secular/atheist scene for the last 5 years. However my boredom doesn't imply that this is a boring book. Not at all - it's written very well! I think it's an excellent starter book for its target audience - the secular person who perhaps has at last decided "Yes, I'm secular - or atheist," (not necessarily the same thing!) and wants an overview of why the Religious Right has turned this country into god god god 24/7 despite the fact that the number of secular Americans is the highest that it has ever been. A good read.
