"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.

"Anyone who gets the joy of collecting -- and who may have had a spouse or significant other refer to their fine objects as "junk" -- should get a laugh out of the new book of cartoons" - Julia Wilkinson, AuctionBytes
"This paperback takes a lighthearted look at the world of collecting. I chuckled at many of the cute situations the author has aptly captured.
One, however, was something I have thought about for many years. It depicts a chap climbing aboard a time machine. He addresses two friends saying, "I'm going back for my baseball cards." I wish that was possible, not only for myself, but for every collector."
- Steven Wayne Yvaska, The Seasoned Collector
"The whole thing is kind of tongue and cheek and at $11.95 it's hard not to resist. You can buy the book and take a peek at some of what's inside through to Amazon.com."
- Rich Mueller, Sports Collectors Daily
"Andy Broome seems like a guy who knows the darkness, or unmitigated weirdness, at the heart of every collector. As the senior vintage card grader at Beckett, the world's standard for meticulous sports card grading and valuation, Broome has surely experienced the fiery depths of collector intensity. If he hadn't, he wouldn't have been able to draw the astute cartoons in Collecting the Collector." - Collin David, Collectors Quest
From the Author
This book is a collection of cartoons from my experiences as a collector and a hobby professional for over 20 years. It is a combination of my two passions, collecting and cartooning and it was a true joy putting them together and sharing them in this book.
Whether your are a collector or just forced to live with one, I know you will find laughs in the pages of Collecting the Collector.
