"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.

About the Author
Suzanne Gibbs was born in Madison, WI where she lived for only a few months. She has lived in 38 addresses including her formative years spent abroad in Mexico and Brazil. Leaving beautiful Brazil for New Jersey as a teenager was confusing and upsetting. The American Culture, all English speaking students, and words such as fair-isle, suburb, and blucher's were completely unknown to her and a great cause for upset. During this time Suzanne began practicing daily writing and doodling as a way to make sence of the world outside of her imagination. This ritual continues to serve her creative process and informs her work. In college, at Carnegie-Mellon University, she studied Graphic Design (BFA 1987). Leaving the East Coast of the United States for the West Coast she settled into the San Francisco Bay Area where she met her husband. She later enrolled at University of Portland (Oregon) in Communication Studies where she graduated with a Master of Science degree in 1995. Degrees complete and the clock ticking at age 30, she took a leap into motherhood and enjoyed the life of stay-at-home parent. The time at home allowed for continued interest in creative endeavors. In Suzanne's world, art making is critical to the construction of a well-lived life. Suzanne uses painting and drawing as her primary medium to communicate visually, her computer and words to communicate through stories. In 2013 having returned to school, yet again, she completed a second Masters, this time in Fine Art at Claremont Graduate University in Los Angeles. Suzanne shares her time and talents through lectures and workshops, participating on artist panels, and facilitating discussion groups about art, the creative process, and learning to see and understand through viewing art. Through the work of Conscious Curiosity she hopes to help couples everywhere to find their best and loving life. Conscious Curiosity is her first book.
