Atheism is usually perceived as a dark, negative and pessimistic belief that is characterized by a rejection of purpose and values along with a fierce condemnation of religion. However, the truth is quite unlike this common notion. Atheism: A Very Short Introduction, which is a fine piece of work by longstanding atheist Julian Baggini, dispels the myths surrounding atheism so readers realize how life without religion can be equally meaningful, positive and moral. The book also addresses the failure of states that have tried to embrace atheism officially in the 20th rests as much upon negative arguments against religion as on positive arguments for its truth.

The conclusion of the book is followed by a detailed index which refers readers to further reading material on the subject.
