The book Generation Atheist by Dan Riley contains interviews of 25 young atheists from many different backgrounds sharing their stories of how each became a nonbeliever. Included are people of different religious backgrounds, ethnic backgrounds, genders, and sexual orientations. For some, becoming a nonbeliever went smoothly. For others, the transition to non-belief had high costs. Through the differences in the stories, the complexities of becoming a nonbeliever become more clear.
