Crazy Wisdom Saves the World Again!: Handbook for a Spiritual Revolution (A Cody's Book) Paperback – April 1, 2008
"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.

On a whim I bought this one, not really expecting much because the cover made me think I was probably going to be getting some sort of hipster smart ass take on how to become enlightened in 15 days or less.
I couldn't have been more wrong.
I am already starting to re-read "Crazy Wisdom" because in my opinion it is one of the most sensible hard hitting takes on the philosophy of Buddhism that I've ever come across. Yes, it has it share of puns and quips but the underlying logic of Mr. Nisker's take on our place in the cosmic reality is unassailable. It's certainly unsettling to come to grips with the fact that our place in this world is not on top of the evolutionary heap with a license to take what we want.
Mankind is only a tiny drop in ocean of existence and Wes Nisker's wonderful book makes that point very powerfully and tells us Buddhism helps immensely with this reality.
I ownly with his publisher had better taste in designing his cover.
