"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.

This was a great find that brought back a lot of memories of being into a bar scene. The protagonist (unnamed) is an interesting character that really brought the reader into the story line and drew vivid portraits of the motley personalities who make up a bar scene. It was fun to read and also just so enjoyably well written. --Goodreads.com
This is a must read punk rock memoir from thuggish mischief to introspection and loyalty. If you are curious about, live or have ever lived in NYC, this is a page turner and an awesome look back on the old NYC. --Goorreads.com

I appreciated the humor, the candor, and the colorful characters that wove through the storyline. I connected with the people in terms of their struggles and their joys. And the author has a remarkable way of painting the world around these characters so you actually feel like your walking through this life with them. You can smell the rotting garbage in the streets, you can feel the frozen chill of the winters, and you can literally see the people that the author is seeing. I mean, with names like Lily the Lesbian, and the Fat Puerto Rican....how can you go wrong??
Read it. You'll feel so much cooler.
