"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.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book's great sadness is matched by the skill and vitality of Hersh's writing; it will make treasured and troubled reading for fans of Chesnutt and the author alike. " (Kirkus Reviews 2015-06-01)

"Don't Suck, Don't Die is not only one of the best books of the year, it's one of the most beautiful rock memoirs ever written. Hersh is as stunningly talented an author as she is a musician, and her portrayal of Chesnutt is perfectly done." (NPR 2015-09-28)

"A raw, poetic memoir . . . a last, wonderful example of Chesnutt at his most charismatically mischievous" (The Guardian 2015-10-15)

"Hersh’s language is vivid and conversational, as descriptive and elliptical as her own music." (Salon 2015-10-17)

"[Hersh’s] observations . . . always ring with a harsh lyrical truth . . . an eloquent, heartbreaking testament. Hersh’s language is vivid and conversational, as descriptive and elliptical as her own music." (Pitchfork 2015-10-28)

"In under 200 little pages, it paints a more honest, insightful picture of the late singer-songwriter than any biography could . . . Beautifully, poetically told." (MOJO 2015-11-01)

"A powerful and moving insight . . . A book that will move anyone who’s loved and lost, regardless of whether they’re a fan of the author of Chesnutt." (R2 2015-10-01)

"An intimate, complicated portrait of the artist as road warrior . . . a beautiful but often dark, heartbreaking read." (Atlanta Journal-Constitution 2015-09-30)

"An ode, an elegy and an examination of the physics of friendship." (WABE 90.1 Atlanta 2015-09-28)

"Through beautifully phrased, dark, honest prose, [Hersh] paints a poetic portrait of earnest struggle, friendship as significant savior, and learned empathy." (The Austin Chronicle 2015-10-16)
