"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 Publishers Weekly

Popular Psychiatrist Salzer has worked with people affected by 9/11 and extensively with RAINN (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network) and aims with this spot-on book to help survivors of both "big-T" and "little-t" traumas. Rejecting the notion that rehashing one's trauma leads to healing, Salzer focuses on positive psychology and employs the metaphor of a vase of stones to explain her technique: the stones (positive emotions) displace the water (negative emotions resulting from trauma). She illustrates how to refute trauma-preserving assumptions and regain a full bandwidth of emotions; her resilience skills will benefit any reader, whether dealing with trauma or not. Refreshingly, she acknowledges the trauma survivor's pain without further victimizing them, is upbeat without being cloying, and is full of humanity, humor, and respect. Well paced, the book's three sections guide readers to change how they think, what they do, and how they feel. Included are the requisite exercises (helpful) and recommended reading list (useful). With a Medical Degree from Cornell and over a decade spent working in psychiatry, Salzer explains clinical concepts in a straightforward yet interesting way, which should help her first book become a primer in the increasingly important field of positive psychology.
