"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.

Simply stated, this is brilliant!
As `Falling In Love' is based on a true story I liked how we see the process of the writer interviewing the person whose life experience this belongs to. Stephen Bradlee's writing style captures the story beautifully and you feel every emotion that "Sherry" is experiencing, both the good and the bad.
Sherry, is struggling with her addiction and is just trying to survive each day and try to overcome it. I found myself cheering her on when things were going well and my heart broke for her when she would step back into those bad habits she's trying to avoid. She is a smart girl with a terrible past and you really hope that she can achieve the future she dreams of.
If you like books that are based on true stories then you need to check this out. If you like emotionally charged reads then definitely check this out. It is not an easy read by any means but it is definitely a fascinating one.
After being abandoned by her mother, left to live with her uncaring aunt and abuser uncle , Sherry Johnson starts searching for love. That search got her kicked out of college and cost her many good relationships.
Eventually Sherry moves to New York City and joins a support group. With the help of this group her confidence grows, she makes friends who like her for who she is and fights her addictions. She even starts playing soccer again.
I saw the cover to this novel and knew that I had to read this. Sex addiction is not something I am familiar with, but I truly enjoyed the story. Once I started reading I could not stop. It was very difficult not to immediately feel sorry for the life Sherry was dealt. Sherry had a rough childhood and was given no love, ever, in her life.
This is not a story of sex, actually there was very little actual sex in the story. This is a story of a girl living through her addiction of her strength and her ability to find herself and move past her history. This book opened my eyes to the struggles an addict goes through and how very important the support they receive is to their sobriety. This is a true 5 star novel.
5 Stars is not sufficient to rate a book which rips at the heartstrings, breaks the reader's heart over and over, and yet-despite witnessing the protagonist hit bottom so many times-leaves us with hope that yes, there can be good come out of wrong, that there may be joy in the morning, that just maybe there is hope in each of our lives if we will but persevere to find it.
This book will make you weep till you think you can weep no more, but it will also make you marvel at the strength of the protagonist. I'm speaking not of physical strength, oftentimes not even of Will, but of the innate character deep inside-perhaps the soul-which knows life can be better and wants to reach that new life, despite the constant tearing away at her resolve, both external and internal.
"Falling in Love" is the story of Sherry's struggle to overcome: her past, her present; her addictions; her early abuse, her acting out; her push-away, pull-toward relationships; her inability to get past the first day or so in a relationship. Some readers might denigrate Sherry because of her acts-I applaud the internal strength that keeps her motivated to change.
I rate this 18+ for both language and situations, but I highly recommend it and hope it finds a wide readership. I was so strongly affected by reading it that I had to sleep on it before I could write my review.
I based my review on an e-book copy provided by the author, Stephen Bradlee, to me via his request, on August 28, 2012, in exchange for my fair and impartial review.
The author gives a first person account of what it's like. This was a well written account based on a true story. Sex addiction probably goes undiagnosed for many people. If anyone suffers from sex addiction, this is a wonderful book to read that lets you know that there are others out there and there is help. The bravery of this woman to come forward is nothing less than commendable. I applaud her outpouring of emotions as she describes the people in her life and how her addiction has destroyed her relationship(s) with them.
