"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.

It gave me some new insights into abuse that I didn't realise but now seeing it written has given me he courage to own my own story.
Even though her stories are about her experiences with an abusive spouse, it struck me (once again) how applicable her writing is for survivors of parental abuse, too. The strategies of abuse, the effects and the healing journey… these things all translate across our experiences. Aubrey is (as always) committed to writing raw and within the moment. There are no embellishments, nothing is made to look or sound better than it is. This is what makes her words so easy to relate to.
Even after years of healing, almost every single chapter gave me some new insight, some new learning or healing.
Maybe what I am trying to say is that the book will be an interesting read for anyone, anywhere on the healing journey. It will help people figure out what is going on when they still are in a toxic relationship, it will give you valuable insight into healing yourself, coping with the aftermath of abuse, and even give you support when dealing with continued abuse through the courts or other proxies.
The book is divided into sections that each deal with a certain aspect of Aubrey’s journey. You can skip through the book and read the chapters on topics that are relevant to you at that moment. Maybe you are feeling you have a spiritual crisis, or dealing with an ex in court… just skip to the relevant section and get reading.
