"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.

- A fresh new novel on the human condition, this is a story, told without pretense, that challenges cherished beliefs in the purpose of life. Shruti has an elegant style with many lyrical passages and the story flows like a poem. - Professor Subhash Kak, Regents Professor at Oklahoma State University and Vedic scholar
- Maya is the protagonist, the 'I', who travels, pausing, taking steps ahead, back, sprinting backwards in fleeting thoughts, at different destinations, cities, towns and self... She compels you to hear (not read), her seamless conversation. She compels you to follow the traveler. She keeps knocking on your mind, softly; tap-tap-tap; knowing that her Maya is, or could be, you. - Creative India magazine

The ending is somewhat abrupt which may be the indication that I actually liked it and wanted the story to continue for a while. The language is beautiful, the imagination vivid, and the perspectives balanced. I see a great storyteller in the offing.
For those who are not sure whether to buy this book, my suggestion is - go ahead, you won't repent.
