"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.

Against All Odds starts on a high note, and the excitement builds from there. The adventures in Brazil seemed to be the end of Jake and Alex. The description of the UFO leaving earth was excellent. The realization of what left earth with the departure of the ship made me wonder if everyone was going to die!
A literature teacher told me once upon a time that the ability to create new names was a hallmark of a superior writer. New name created in the book: "Gualu"...a character to be admired.
As Jake and Alex return to the states the tension grows, and grows. How many tragedies and problems can one family endure? Apparently many challenges. And through all the problem one thing shines through clearly: love. Love for family, love for their home, and a deep patriotic feeling.
In fact it is the love story that is woven throughout all 7 books that make this an outstanding series. Yes, it's still an adventure novel, and a science fiction novel, and a spy novel, a conspiracy novel, a highly technical novel, and through it all a love story.
Slipped into the book is the information that Francesca is newly pregnant...just that one little mention...and that gives me hope that even though the Brainrush series is complete, are there more adventures awaiting the Bronson family?
My favorite quote in the book (that sums up the constant thread) "If not for love, what would humanity look like today? Would violence still permeate your planet?"
Jake and the gang went through a lot together. From saving the world to being marked as terrorist. Jake was wanted as a Global Terrorist and a price on his head, literally.
I won't give anything away in this book but you have to read it if you have read the other books in this series. This has been one hell of a ride from start to finish. From the killing of so many innocents to the heroes who saved the USA from certain destruction. Even throw in a few aliens and yes I mean outer space aliens. From being labeled a Global terrorist to a hero Jake Bronson always saves the day. He puts his life on the line and has even given it up a time or two. But you just can't keep a good guy down long.
His friends and family worked hard together to just be a normal family. I hope they have finally found that.
I hated so bad for this series to end. I am hoping that future books my Mr Bard include Jake and Alex and others so we can keep up with them.
I have laughed, cried and cringed reading this series. It's been a few years from start to finish but the final book was totally worth waiting for. It's awesome, wonderful. One you will keep with you for a while. Makes you think about how things can happen too. At least it does for me.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review and I've tried hard to give it justice. There is so much that can be said about this book and the series but you have to read them for yourself to truly appreciate it all.
I loved it so much. Thank you Richard Bard for writing such a wonderful story. All of your fans loved it. I know that in my heart. Wonderful job. This series should be made into a movie. I am so series. It should be. It's that good...
In my humble opinion, this is a mixture of genres, mainly Science Fiction and Thriller.
At the end of book 6, Jake and Alex were summoned by an unseen force and young men were planning something big and devastating. As events unfold in this story, we see some changes in Jake's other two children. Is this normal teen angst or are they challenged to earn the Bronson name?
I truly love how Mr. Bard brings out the best in the main characters despite all that is thrown at them. Loyalty to family and friends is the underlying current.
Warning: There is Violence as well as Adult Language and Situations.
