"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.

For one who is not accustomed to educated and/or academic writing it might be a little daunting to plow through.
Here are some representative quotations from the book:
"I am aware that these observations are floating in a sea of uncertainties, but I think it would be wrong to suppress them, for luckier investigators may come after us who will be able to put them in right perspective..."
"Here the question might certainly be asked: of what use is this to the dreamer if he does not understand the dream? To this I must remark that understanding is not an exclusively intellectual process for, as experience shows, a man may be influenced, and indeed convinced in the most effective way, by innumerable things of which he has no intellectual understanding."
"Every advance, every conceptual achievement of mankind, has been connected with an advance in self-awareness: man differentiated himself from the object and faced Nature as something distinct from her."
"Unfortunately Freud's idea of sexuality is incredibly elastic and so vague that it can be made to include almost anything."
"(C)onsciously the dreamer had no inkling of all this. But in his unconscious he is immersed in this sea of historical associations, so that he behaves in his dreams as if he were fully cognizant of these curious excursions into the history of the human mind."
"People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls... Thus the soul has gradually been turned into a Nazareth from which nothing good can come."
"Since we cannot possibly know the boundaries of something unknown to us, it follows that we are not in a position to set any bounds to the self."
