"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.

He finally meets up with Sarah who remembers him and helps with his plans to find the answers he needs. But, is she real or a figment of his imagination?
Pierce’s writing holds the reader’s attention with his descriptive prose and page turning suspenseful moments. Erased is fast moving but does not leave out details or put unanswered questions in the reader’s mind.
I am no technical geek so I can’t say how accurate the book is in this area but it certainly held my interest and was exciting. Usually, when I am reviewing a book I make notes along the way. In this case, I was too engrossed to take many notes. That is always a good sign of how a book holds my interest.
Congratulations Mr Pierce! This is indeed a 5* book.
When virtually all of his contacts deny knowing him, where can he turn for help? Is there anyone he can trust? As the saying goes, “Just because you’re paranoid, that doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you.” He eventually does put his faith in a woman he met at work, and they partner up to use their extensive computer skills to keep his pursuers at bay. Jeff, a programmer who is also professional hacker, comes up with ingenious schemes to buy time, but Sarah is no slouch either. Was it my imagination, or does their relationship come about too easily? Well, for one thing, she reminds him of his former fiancée, who was killed in an accident. Could a new romance be brewing? There is no time for love, however, because whoever expunged Jeff’s identity is now seeking to cause him physical harm.
As in Mr. Pierce’s Blood Passage, the protagonist has smarts. He is sharp-witted, tech-savvy, and he thinks like a military man. He has the personality of a mild-mannered civilian, but he can turn on the tough stuff when he needs to. Sarah is sharp and insightful too. But is she real, or is she a figment of a delusional mind? All of a sudden, I found myself shouting, “WHAT?!” I was scratching my head, wondering how it was all going to shake out.
I marvel at the author’s cleverness in getting his characters in and out of technical difficulties.
I am not a techie geek by any stretch of the imagination, but I still found Erased to be filled with plenty of commotion and tension.
