"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.

His story moved me while reading about him and his work. I had to wipe away tears from my eyes. I never knew I could be profoundly affected by interview. Michelle Monet captured his story beautifully. Together with the artist, she established an emotional connection with her readers and powerfully.
From the first chapter of the book all the way through to the last, I became inspired. However, it was the seventy-year-old filmmaker in Chapter Twenty-Six who made me realize there is much more to my artistic works than I thought. I felt an appreciation for the creative abilities the Lord gave me. The seventy year old filmmaker brought forth his knowledge of his craft.
Throughout Michelle's book, there are examples of the different art forms created by the artists featured in her book. The artistry is profound and spiritual. Creative People…And What Makes Them Tick is prolific, filled with a serene spirit.
While I like seeing the images of everyone’s art, my favorite part is reading the interviews. I love getting into each artist’s head! Reading their answers, as to how they work best, what motivates them, how they respond to negative comments, and if they have ever felt like ‘odd balls.’ So many of us can relate to feeling ‘odd.’ As an artist, if you feel like an oddball, you are probably on the right track. Be different. Be unique. Be you.
Thank you, Michelle, for asking these questions, for putting a spotlight on our work— our passion, so the rest of the world could catch a glimpse of who we are. I highly recommend this book if you want the inside view of an artist. It’s a book I’m going to enjoy for a long time.
