"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.

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8 Up—Tess's parents have recently separated, and the teen and her mother have moved from Chicago to Michigan to start over. Once there, Tess finds herself inexplicably attracted to Micah, an angst-ridden boy who belittles her, contrasting her with his "true love," Daisy. Sprinkled throughout the story are italicized phrases—assertive responses that Tess lacks the self-esteem to voice aloud. In an epiphany, she realizes that her attraction to Micah stems from his familiarity: her father is insulting and abusive in the same way, and she begins to speak out, expressing the internal dialogue she has been having all along. Albatross is a startlingly realistic portrayal of emotionally abusive relationships. Its message to young women is clear: do not put up with men who make you feel bad about yourself.—Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL

From Booklist

The latest title in the Band Geek series follows 16-year-old French horn player Tess, who falls hard for Micah, an attractive but manipulative and self-centered pianist. Bloss tells an all-too-familiar tale of a young woman perversely attracted to a guy who attempts to control her by sabotaging her self-esteem. Readers will share Tess’ friends’ frustration as she struggles to finally break free of Micah’s magnetism. Similar in theme yet less complex than Patrick Jones’ Things Change (2004), Albatross embeds a fictional lesson into a story of smart characters making foolish choices. Grades 8-11. --Frances Bradburn
