"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.

Good book but a little hard to stomach. I hope he writes a third one that can go back to the humor because when he's funny omg he just has me in stitches !!! This book made my heart just ache for his mother ..
Add on - I was almost finished the book when I wrote the above review the last three chapters took my heart .... some say he comes off pompous or repetitive but unfortunately that's the way most drug addicts come off in general and repetitive ha! That's the sheer definition of drug addiction ... when he got into Mitch hedberg I lost it I mean I LOST it.. I always liked that guy thought he was funny and to hear how he went down was just heart wrenching ... I'm glad Artie made it through but again I think he's still messing with it so I really do pray for him ... no more self destruction... makes for riveting reading but I keep thinking of his poor mom ..she must be worried sick all the time .. and his sister who seem like really good people .
What follows may be a spoiler to some!!!: Kudos to Mr Lange for coming clean on the big lie that attempts to sugarcoat the most important chapter in the book. But like any addict, no matter how candid his revelation seems, people need to be aware there is almost always one more lie underneath the last one to be exposed, like little Russian nesting dolls of shame and regret.
I gave it four stars because at times I feel Artie uses a lot of hyperbole in describing his experiences which sort of negates the weight of what is going on as the book progresses. Kind of like a guy who uses the F word a lot.
Overall, great book, and a must read for any Stern fan.
