"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

About the Author Dave Griffin began running in 1976 as a high school freshman. He ran competitively through 1989 with PRs that include a 25:43 5M, a 32:11 10K and a 1:12:24 half marathon. In 1986, much the medial meniscus was removed during surgery to repair a non-running injury. The doctor advised Dave to stop running, warning that he would get arthritis if he continued. He returned to running and racing after the surgery, running some of his best races in 1987-89. After a 12-year period of casual running when his children were young, he returned to competitive running as a master. The doctor’s warning came true in 2005, when Dave developed arthritis in his right knee. The years since have been riddled with injury, including a stress fracture in his right medial condyle while training for the 2012 Boston Marathon. Dave started the Flying Feet Running Programs in 2004 while his daughter, Katie, was running in high school. The program has since grown to provide year-round coaching and support to runners of all experience and talent levels in the Carroll County, Maryland, area. Dave begin writing about running and life in 2006, when his bi-weekly column, Dave Griffin on Running, was introduced. In 2010, Dave published his first book, After the Last PR – The Virtues of Living a Runner’s Life. You can find Dave on the internet at www.flyingfeetrunning.com . You can also find pages for his books on Facebook.
