Why You Should Read This Book
There are many popular books about humanism and atheism, but most either focus entirely on disproving the existence of the Christian God (e.g. The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins) or promote a Consequentialist worldview that has no consistent moral structure, as within that worldview whether something is good or bad is viewed by its short term results (e.g. The End of Faith by Sam Harris). Open-ended consequentialism is relatively difficult for people to import into their daily lives because there is no handy list of rules or guidelines to follow in commonly encountered situations, which I find often leads people to make short-sighted decisions with destructive long-term consequences.
Furthermore, many secular philosophical books published today are written like an academic essay, filled with citations and quotes from various philosophers. Consequently they are not stand alone works and they require the reader to be familiar with the sources they are citing. While this is fine for academia, this scholarly structure of the books make them a poor substitute for morality texts like the Bible or the Quran, which have the authoritative format in which people prefer.
The Book of Chivalric Humanism is designed to replace religious moral texts through employment of an authoritative style of voice that does not constantly quote other sources for its wisdom. It also presents a self-contained philosophy that does not require the reader to be an academic in order to understand the material. This makes the book easily understandable to the average individual.
