"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


"A well-woven storyline and wonderfully rich characters make Hammon's second book a great, gripping read. [She] ultimately succeeds with a fine story about love and sacrifice that will hook readers to the end." - Publisher's Weekly

"An amazing story, told with tenderness and grace. There's much more here than you're expecting. Well done!" - the Louisville Courier-Journal

"You've met the characters in this book. They live next door or across the street. And their lives and struggles are so real you might just expect to see them there. This level of story-telling and character development are a rare find. Don't pass this book by. Just don't. You will be sorry if you do."- the Cincinnati Post Inquirer

"If there's a word beyond WOW I'm still looking for it! This book took me places I've never been and made me realize what true talent looks like on the page" - Kween Bee Book Blog

"This is a tale that encompasses generations yet compresses it all into 5 days. Ninie Hammon has a way with words and a deep understanding of the human heart."  Eric Wilson Amazon Top 100 Reviewer

"A few times a year I'll read a book like Five Days in May- one in which the twists and turns are so surprising and unpredictable that after awhile you quit trying to figure out what lies ahead and just allow the author to guide you along in her capable hands." Brian Switzer, Amazon verified purchase

"Based on people comparing her with Frank Peretti, Ted Dekker, Tosca Lee and in my opinion Stephen King, I knew I had to read her novel. You always want to believe that the book will hold up to all the compliments but this one does that and so much more. You don't just read this novel, you become part of it." Pirate 2240 Kat, Amazon verified purchase

From the Author

          I've long believed that this book got hijacked. 
          I set out to write a contemporary suspense noveI, a modern fiction story with real, believable characters who are forced by circumstances to fight or their lives. That's what I intended to write but that's not exactly how it turned out. Somehow it became ... more, truly inspirational, a book undergirded by hope and suffused with what I can only describe as "the unexplainable." Somewhere in the telling of the tale,  Five Days in May developed deep thematic elements of faith and sacrifice that I didn't plan. 
          It started to change almost as soon as I sat down to write. I was working late one evening--on a roll, in a zone where words seemed to flow with effortless grace.  So it was jarring when I noticed that my fingers had just typed something I never intended. 
          Hmmmm, I thought. Interesting.
          Then it happened again. 
          And again.
          I remember one place in particular. Jonas has run into his wife's bedroom to get her because a tornado is coming.
          I wrote "Jonas flipped on the light switch. Maggie was gone."
          And I thought, "She's gone? How can she be gone? Where'd she go?" I had no idea.
          There's a beautifully rich theme underlying this story, one the reviewer from Publisher's Weekly picked up on. Just know that I don't think I get credit for it. I didn't start out to put it there.
