"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.

Edward was England's last child king, but he was quite intelligent and well-educated and ready for the job in his minority. Fervently Protestant, he was crowned king at 9.
When a child was king there were always others around him who were faithful and remained in their rightful positions to help the king and advise him, but there were others who wanted either that king's crown for themselves or a position higher than what they presently had. It was no different in Edward VI's situation. Edward had a good understanding of his kingdom and no doubt would have influenced religious changes in the country. It was not to be, however. Edward was stricken with illness and died at the age of 15, and the author has given a new theory on what may have caused his life to be cut tragically short.
Well-written and quite interesting, anyone interested in this period of history should enjoy this book. Recommended.
