"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

“Warner blends accessible language and irreverent humor in his second paraphrase of the work of 13th-century Buddhist monk Dogen (after Don’t Be a Jerk). Warner parses both highly philosophical and fairly straightforward works of ethics and shows the range and depth of Dogen’s Zen teachings by staying true to the original meanings while excising stumbling blocks for modern readers. . . . Warner’s slightly silly but still serious renditions create a charming and readable (though not particularly systematic) exploration of Buddhist approaches to the good life.”
— Publishers Weekly

Praise for Brad Warner’s Don’t Be a Jerk

“A delightful blend of irreverent everydayness, precise scholarship, and heartfelt commitment to practice.”
— Stephen Batchelor, author of After Buddhism

“Warner renders the esoteric [Shobogenzo] into a fun, readable text, conveying its spirit with humor and deep respect.”
— Publishers Weekly

“What’s clear in reading Warner’s book is his deep respect and lifelong engagement with Dogen. . . .While Warner’s approach to Dogen may be unorthodox, its freshness might be exactly what the doctor ordered for anyone wanting a way in to the old monk’s still fresh perspective.”
— Adam Frank, 13.7: Cosmos & Culture blog, NPR.org

“Each chapter opens with a passage from the original, which is then carefully and often humorously unpacked. . . . Although the tone may be irreverent and humorous, the book shows the utmost respect for the monk, who has influenced so many over the centuries.”
— Booklist
