By Bo Bennett. This is an academically oriented book. It is meant to be a sequel to Gerard Larue’s The Way of Positive Humanism . What is Positive Humanism? Is the focus of Humanism on all that is positive – how to live life better and be a better person and flourish – and a downplaying of the – what we are against approach that a lot of the modern Humanist movement seems to find itself stuck in. For someone new to the concept of Humanism, or who is coming out of the self-help and success guru world, or who – like the author, spent time as an angry atheist and is trying to rid themselves of their “anger” – this is a really good book and a really needed book.
