Waterstones Says

The perfect introduction to living a good life without religious faith, this little book from the acclaimed scientist illustrates how broadly humanist beliefs and practices dovetail with how we commonly live and act today.

We all want to lead a happy life. Traditionally, when in need of guidance, comfort or inspiration, many people turn to religion. But there has been another way to learn how to live well - the humanist way - and in today's more secular world, it is more relevant than ever.

In The Little Book of Humanism, Alice Roberts and Andrew Copson share over two thousand years of humanist wisdom through an uplifting collection of stories, quotes and meditations on how to live an ethical and fulfilling life, grounded in reason and humanity.

With universal insights and beautiful original illustrations, The Little Book of Humanism is a perfect introduction to and a timeless anthology of humanist thought from some of history and today's greatest thinkers.

“Uplifting and Informative”

Both an excellent introduction to Humanism and and uplifting read for those who already know something about it. Easily dipped into or read in a single sitting.

I gave my first copy away to a Humanist-curious friend,... More
