For 91 Days in Iceland Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I don't enjoy the cold, but "91 Iceland" has definitely piqued my curiosity. The authors mention several activities I'd like to try, such as "Snorkeling at the Silfra Fissure." I can't resist quoting the humorous description:
"Floating on your stomach in near-freezing water is normally an experience one has after being murdered by the Mafia. But in the right circumstances, it can be enjoyable. When you're alive, for instance, and looking through crystal clear glacial water at the Silfra Fissure."
They go on to reassure the reader that the tour company provides dry suits which "keep out the cold and keep in the warmth."
Iceland has many great places to observe nature, and this book's active table of contents can help you locate them. In the Arctic Fox Center at Suðavík, for instance, you can learn about "the only terrestrial mammal native to Iceland" (almost hunted to extinction), and if you're lucky, you can watch rescued fox pups. A visit to the Látrabjarg Bird Cliffs will allow you to see millions of birds close up, including some of the 10,000,000 puffins that live in Iceland.
Although I prefer to visit warm countries, For 91 Days in Iceland provides lots of enjoyable reading for this armchair traveler. Definitely worth buying!
