"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.

Logan Riggs, our hero, fights hard for what he thinks is right, and he loves just as passionately.
What touched me most, in truth, was Logan's love for his wife, Cali (he calls her "Little One"). Cali is from a different planet (Vega Star System), and loves her people very much. She also knows that they have been abused and even tried to be obviated from existence. I also loved the relationship, the dynamic, between Paxton, a giant of a man, and Riggs, who are are constantly on opposite ends, but still working in the same army so to speak. It's funny how the story takes you to the place where the answers are usually found: in your own front yard.
In the end, Cali's love saves Logan, and helps him finally see how to fulfill her life's ambition -- and when he does, he saves himself and Paxton. And a race.
I have no minuses, or caveats. It's a remarkably good story, well thought out, touching, and very worth every bit of 5 stars. Or 6.
