One of the biggest problems facing people new to the freethought and secular movement is the availability of books on subjects important to them. Many times young people who have just "come out" as freethinkers have a difficult time procuring books that educate them about the history and purposes of humanism, secular humanism, atheism, science education, freethought, and related issues. Even long-term freethinkers can have a problem gathering books when they are scattered across the freethought terrain of the Internet - especially considering the Herculean task of sifting through the more prevalent non- and anti-freethought resources that are available.

As part of our educational initiative, the Secular Student Alliance is proud to introduce The Student Freethought Book List. Its purpose is to provide students with a centrally located list of reading materials from which they can choose (and even purchase!) books that discuss topics of importance to the freethought and secular movement. These books also further the education of freethinkers of all ages on matters that they often find important enough to discuss online and with one another socially.

It is with the greatest enthusiasm that we introduce this list to the student (both traditional and non-traditional) freethought population.
