"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.

By using real admissions information found on a few college websites, Binz interprets and explains. The colleges vary from Christian private colleges to secular private schools and a state university. Some discussed are Harvey Mudd, Olin, Northwest University and Wheaton University. Some examples are what qualifies as a “world language”.
Binz discusses preferences such as that colleges want grades, even if they are Mommy grades, while stressing honesty. She discusses putting the statement “official transcript” on the transcript to meet the college’s rules (no matter how silly this may seem to a homeschooler).
Sometimes colleges ask odd or stupid things of applicants. In the last chapter we see some examples and Binz encourages us to contact the colleges to have a respectful dialogue with the college. Sometimes the college decide to make a policy change.
I rate this book 4 stars = I Like It. It is helpful and encouraging. You will learn more if you read Binz’s other books. The sum total of what you need to know can be found by reading a bunch of these Coffee Break ebooks or by reading one of her printed, longer books though.
