"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

From Publishers Weekly

In retired trial lawyer Phelan's lively fourth Pinnacle Peak mystery, attorney Hannah Dain, barely recovered from the adventures of 2006's Spurred Ambition, takes on a case that leads her into abandoned mines and deep waters in the Arizona desert. While helping her older sister and fellow attorney, Shelby, gather evidence for a uranium pollution lawsuit brought by the local Indian tribe, Hannah rescues a woman whose car plunges into a lake. Following up on the woman leads to other questions, and a twist of circumstance finds Hannah appointed lead prosecutor for the case. Meanwhile, she's having second thoughts about her ex-boyfriend, Cooper Smith, and her fondness for her recently discovered young half-sister, Anuya, further jeopardizes her shaky relationship with Shelby. Vivid descriptions of the desert provide a dramatic backdrop to the increasingly dangerous investigation as Hannah inches closer to the truth. Phelan has created a swiftly moving tale of corporate corruption and tangled, touching family relationships. (Sept.)

From Booklist

After a daring rescue of a woman whose car plunges into a lake, business attorney Hannah Dain fills in for her sister in criminal court. All she has to do is tell the judge that the clients' claim has been settled. However, the plaintiffs, members of the Tohono O'odham Indian Community, whose children have suffered birth defects due to contaminated water from government-dumped uranium on their reservation, want their day in court. Hannah, who only practices business law, suddenly finds herself appointed the lead counsel in the case with only a month to prepare for trial, angering her father, her sister, and the tribe's representative. Complicating matters, her teenage half sister unexpectedly shows up on her doorstep. The beautiful but treacherous Arizona desert setting is skillfully portrayed in this fast-paced legal thriller. Hannah is an engaging character who is just coming to terms with secrets from her past and the fallout from a failed romance. The fourth in a series. O'Brien, Sue
