"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Editorial Reviews

Review

The result is a road tale that takes interpersonal connections and discoveries and elevates them to a new level of introspection and growth, making East - A Novel highly recommended for readers who like their stories introspective as well as adventurous, and who look at the road trip experience as one example of growth-inducing decisions.
D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
The writing is superb ... If there is any writer that Hoskins reminds me of it would be John Steinbeck. But instead of Northern California and the Salinas Valley, we get to explore Australia and New Zealand ...
R. Simmons, Readers' Favorite
This is a book that ended up even questioning my own life and where I was heading - how I could change the mundane into something a lot more exciting ...
C. Frayling, New Zealand Booksellers' Association
