"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

Review

"Centered on an intriguing question: What if Bonnie and Clyde weren't gunned down in 1934, but were instead kidnapped by a secret organization that wanted to ensure the New Deal overcame bitter opposition from the 1 percent? Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road is a taut, fast-paced, fun read that cuts agilely back and forth between the anti-heroes' Depression-era escapades and a modern-day reporter trying to revive his career with a big scoop, all while addressing serious topics such as income inequality." The Oregonian

"Hays and McFall make their Depression-era tale timely with reflections on wealthy fat cats and a rigged economic system that still ring true. More than that, the story is an exciting ride, with tight corners, narrow escapes, and real romantic heat between Bonnie and Clyde. Outlaws become patriots in this imaginative, suspenseful what-if story." Kirkus Reviews 
 
"A fantastic story of actions, consequences, and the driving forces that turn the chaos of youth into a measured effort to achieve redemption in adulthood. Readers seeking an engrossing read that continually twists history to provide thought-provoking new outcomes will relish the blend of action and psychology that make Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road exceptional.Midwest Book Review

"Will America's favorite bad seeds save the day, and their own skins in the process? As the rich get richer and the middle class becomes more desperate in present-day America, Resurrection Road is a timely reminder that sometimes the solution to a problem comes from the least likely source. Sex, danger and intrigue, coupled with just the right dose of cheeky humor." East Oregonian

"This new 'what-if' take on the 1934 deaths of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow is a fast-moving action-thriller rich with mystery and socio-political commentary; an absorbing, danger-rich ride through some of the worst days of America's Great Depression and troubled early months of FDR's New Deal. [Set] against a backdrop where wealthy, powerful forces in Washington, D.C., desperately do not want to be taxed to help America's jobless and homeless stay alive, Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road fits right into today's contentious news headlines." Lone Star Literary Review    

"The nearly million-member strong National Grange takes on a starring role as a 'secret organization defending American democracy and the working class.' Grange Halls serve as safe houses for Bonnie and Clyde, a hospitality reminiscent of what founder Oliver Hudson Kelley planned when proposing his new agricultural fraternity...fast-paced, authentic landscapes of rural America, readers who enjoy history or conspiracy will find their blood running faster." Good DAY, the magazine of The National Grange  

"It's 50 years after Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker rampaged through the Midwest during their outlaw days. Clyde's dead and an aging Bonnie (aka Brenda Prentiss) wants to tell the real story to Royce Jenkins, a reporter. As might be expected, Bonnie and Clyde are on the run through much of the book's 300 cleverly written pages. And it's no accident that their saga takes them through Shillington, Reading, and Pottsville." Reading Eagle

From the Inside Flap

WHAT IF?
 
The Texas Ranger looked up at Sal, a mixture of fear, respect and revulsion in his eyes. "Let's pretend for a minute it wasn't Bonnie and Clyde in that ambush," he said. "Why? Why would it be different people in that car?"
 
"How would I know?" Sal asked. "I work for the government. I trust that the government has my best interests at heart. I follow orders. You didn't."
 
"I won't be quiet about this unless you can tell me why anyone would try to save them outlaws."
 
"If they were still alive, I would tell you that everyone has a purpose in life, and perhaps they are fulfilling theirs. And if they were still alive, I would tell you that you don't use good dogs to guard the junkyard, you use the meanest goddamn dogs you can get a collar around," she said.
