Penn Jillette has been one half of the Emmy Award-winning, world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller for more than thirty-five years. He is the author of God, No! and the novel Sock, as well as several books cowritten with Teller. Jillette lives with his family in Las Vegas.
"[Jillette's] words are funny, dignified and make perfect sense. An outspoken wordsmith offers more intelligent, humorous and against-the-grain perspectives."--Kirkus Reviews"Jillette, the taller and more verbose half of Penn & Teller follows up 2011's God No! with this further exploration of his own atheism....allowing his intelligence and razor-sharp wit to shine through....will surely appeal not only to Penn & Teller fans, but also to readers who welcome the opportunity to examine their own deeply held beliefs from a new angle."--David Pitt, Booklist "Undeniably fun....fans of Jillette's magic and comedy will be thrilled....entertaining....it would be difficult to not find something fun here."--Publisher's Weekly "Penn Jillette is a twenty-first-century Lord of Misrule: big, boisterously anarchic, funny, Rabelaisian, impossible--and unique. There isn't--couldn't be--better not be--anybody like him."--Richard Dawkins, New York Times bestselling author of The God Delusion "Giddily blasphemous...Jillette the author sounds like Jillette the performer--sharp and subversive...There is a forceful intelligence at work here."--The Washington Post Book World "Thoughtful and provocative...The man can really tell a story: he is wonderful at finding the right vivid image, the right hilarious detail."--NPR.org "His books are where we get the unfiltered Penn....Who wouldn't want advice about April Fools' Day from America's trickster laureate?....The best parts [of the book] are random, profane but delicious insider stories that few others can deliver."--Wall Street Journal "Readers will enjoy extremely funny stories from a man who loves his family and doesn't let his celebrity go to his head."--Associated Press
