"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.

Anyway. Do you love sf? First contact stories? Time travel stories? Stories that have tragedy but are also positive? Read this one.
Hire a maid, put the dog in a kennel, tell your friends you are off to a desert island on vacation and there is no cell phone reception, and pull the shades . . . you're not going to want to put this one down until you read the very last word.
I've read 4 Cawdron books, which were recommended to me by a very unlikely source. If this person tells me to read a book, I expect excellence. I picked up my first Cawdron book with some hesitation because I could not believe the recommendation was for an indie author. I said it in a review for another of his books, but i will repeat it here: either Cawdron is paying a professional editor or he is a true writer in every sense of the word. He is honing his craft nicely and each new book is better than the one before.
My review: I am not normally a huge science fiction fan but this book was good. The science fiction part does not really come into play too much until the end. Let me clarify, this entire book is about UFO's, time travel, and space but it's also kind of a love story. I could not put this book down. As I was reading one day, my wife commented on just how many pages I read from one day to the next, easily 200 pages. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I loved the characters and especially how they all came together in the end. A well written, enjoyable story to say the least. Thank you Peter.
I feel like Peter Cawdron was a rocket scientist in another life or something, he knows so much about space and science, it amazes me. For all I know he is a scientist now and writes in his personal time. Maybe he is from the future and knew I would love this book and write it for me. Could be true? Unfortunately I don't know much about him but I do have all his books and I will definitely keep reading them. Plus he is from Australia, maybe on my next trip back we can sit down and talk about some of this time travel business...
My rating: 8
I have no hesitations comparing Cawdron to RCW or Hugh Howey, he's an excellent novelist with great ideas and knows how to keep you glued to the screen of your tablet. The characters are exciting but believable, there's no superheros, just regular people in sometimes extraordinary circumstances, they could be me, you, or your friend next door; that's important: it makes the characters believable. Throw that together with an original sci fi idea and you've got a great book, I thoroughly recommend Feedback, it's a better read than books priced three times as much on here.
