"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.

A look into the more technical aspects of the book, I felt the format was good. I was worried with the main character having a stutter that it might affect the formatting and readability of the book, but it actually flows pretty well, and allows you to get a strong sense of the character and her struggles. I thought the dialogue was smooth, and really gave us a sense of each character in how they spoke, or at times, at how little they spoke. I enjoyed the subtle plot in this book from where we started to how we ended things, it was interesting, engaging, but not over the top filled with drama. The characters act in ways that you could imagine yourself or your friend acting. Feelings of betrayal, jealousy, anger, confusion, and kindness; that’s what real life is. All in all, this book was engaging, touching, and I would recommend it to friends. I felt the author made a strong point in this novel, and I really enjoyed seeing the character develop and change. I will be looking for more from this author in the future.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!
Not only is Beverly thoroughly likeable, she is also very well written and it is easy to become immersed in her journey to rebuild her life. Beverly has allowed her stutter to dominate, and it has therefore dictated how she has lived her life. With the brutal reality that those she calls friends aren't really that, Beverly also realises that she must now accept help elsewhere and rebuild her life - by facing some of her worst fears.
This is an engaging read which I really enjoyed. Beverly is real - faults and all - and it is fascinating reading how she takes responsibility for her predicament and vows to change her life for the better.
