"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

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, March 2013: Peppered with fascinating facts and well-chosen anecdotes, Amy Stewart’s brisk tour of the origin of spirits acquaints the curious cocktail fan with every conceivable ingredient. Starting with the classics (from agave to wheat), she touches on obscure sources--including a tree that dates to the dinosaur age--before delving into the herbs, spices, flowers, trees, fruits, and nuts that give the world’s greatest drinks distinctive flavors. Along the way, you’ll enjoy sidebars on bugs in booze and inspired drink recipes with backstories that make lively cocktail party conversation. Like Wicked Plants, this delightfully informative, handsome volume isn’t intended as a complete reference or DIY guide, but it will demystify and heighten your appreciation of every intoxicating plant you imbibe. --Mari Malcolm

Review

“A rich compendium of botanical lore for cocktail lovers.”
      —Kirkus

(AudioFile)

“Amy Stewart has a way of making gardening seem exciting, even a little dangerous.”
      —New York Times

(BookPage)

“Coleen Marco narrates . . . with gusto while respecting the informative nature of the material. She is delightfully entertaining. . . . This title is bound to entertain imbibers as it informs.”
      —AudioFile

(Forbes)

“Lest you think this is for the imbibers only, a teetotaler foodie, gardener or naturalist will be just as intoxicated by the dashing wit and detailed lore.”
      —BookPage

(The Bookwatch)

“A quirky new compendium of the plants that have been picked, muddled and crafted into drinks. . . . As much an around-the-world tour of global spirits as a gardener’s guide to growing boozy botanicals.”
      —Forbes

(Library Bookwatch)

“A fine listen that brings to life the world of botany by connecting plants with human dietary choices and the evolution of liquor.”
      —The Bookwatch

(Library Journal)

“A most enjoyable way to learn just what’s in one’s favorite cocktail or bar drink, and is a great source of anecdotes to liven up a party!”
      —Library Bookwatch



“Informative and enjoyable listening, especially with Coleen Marlo’s lively reading.”
      —Library Journal
