Religion for Atheists by Alain de Botton


There are two reasons I picked this book up. The first was because it was part of a “buy one get one half price promotion” (not gonna lie, misread that and thought it was buy one get one free – oops). The second was because it came recommended by a work colleague. I liked the premise behind the book. It sounded like an interesting idea and could perhaps be something similar to my own feelings around religion. Although probably closer to agnosticism myself I went to a religiously minded university and liked a lot of what they did – they were big on volunteering for example – so was interested to read what de Botton had to say. There are a few interesting points peppered throughout the book but in all honesty it would probably have made a better essay.
