"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 also loved Ned and Ellie. I disagree with some of the reviewers who gave this book less than four or five stars and said that Ned wasn't very romantic. I don't feel that he ignored Ellie through the whole book. He was more like the modern day hero of "Sleepless in Seattle," who still missed his wife, but is intrigued by a new love.
The story was very fast-paced -- it went a little too fast, and I was sorry when the book ended -- all too soon. I look forward to the next book, and Jack's story.
The biggest fault I had with the story was Ned's reasons for not marrying Ellie. His reasons didn't make sense to me at all. Ned's wife Cicely died in childbirth. He won't marry Ellie because he is afraid the same thing might happen to her. Yet, he has no problem pursuing Lady Juliet, who everyone thinks looks just like Cicely. My thought is: why the heck would he pick someone physically similar to his wife when the reason Cicely died was because she wasn't strong enough? So, his reason for not marrying Ellie didn't make any sense at all for me.
Something else that bugged me that was also mentioned in an earlier review was the title. "Bedding Lord Ned" seemed to me, as if Ellie was pursuing Ned. That is not correct. For most of the book, she tries to ignore him. I really tried to like this book, but I can't. The problems and characters' actions just wasn't believable. I never understood Ellie's reason for loving Ned so long. I just hope the next book in the series is better.
