What if I told you that you could be a rational and reasonable atheist and also harness love, purpose and consciousness to thrive in life, love and leadership?

Spiritual Atheist is a modern-day ‘bible’ for the ‘spiritual not religious’ that seeks to fully reconcile what our minds know with what our hearts sense about life, love, business and politics.

The author spent 30 years on a quest to work out how to rigorously reconciles cutting-edge science with timeless spiritual wisdom to ensure we can all thrive in the challenging Digital Age.

The books shows a way for everyone to find lasting inner peace and a life of purpose without betraying reason or falling into superstition.
