"What if I'm an Atheist?" is over all, a pretty interesting read. It delves into a lot of information and gives a lot of studied facts to back up what David Seidman is saying. Most of the information you can trust because of that. This book is great because of how it handles the information; Before moving on to a new topic or giving his own opinion, he takes everyone's point of view into account first. He will usually give a few quotes or passages from people who see differently from each other. When talking about something like Atheism, it is good to take in every point of view and the author does it very well. This book shows how both Atheist and theists should behave toward each other, while also giving a few tips Atheists could use when faced common questions or arguments. This book does have one fault that does bother me, and that is it's organization. There just seems to be not too much thought into how the book should've been laid out as far as formatting. The author also doesn't seem to give enough of his own input, it is mostly quotes and statistics. While this isn't too much of a bad thing, it wasn't what I was expecting and does drag the book down when I see a quote from somebody every sentence or two. Although, despite this it still is a great read and relatively quick too. It can be enjoyed by just about anything, already atheists or even those of religion. It is, in a way, an entry level book to atheism. I'd recommend just about any young atheist to take a read.
