"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.

This book contains a few technical details to attract sci-fi nuts like me that sets up the fictional science without slowing the story. The pseudo science details are just part of the backdrop, coming to the surface here and there to tweak the plot. The main character is a somewhat average Joe that wants a better life. early on I thought some statements in his internal dialogue to the reader were conflicting or confusing but by the end they are simply portrayals off the depth of human nature and how our present viewpoint on anyone and everything is a culmination of all experiences with it. That viewpoint sways with the experience that is in the forefront of or minds. If your tempted to read jump in or at least read the sample. A reading list I subscribe to suggested it and I thought it might be worth it. I read the sample and I had to know the rest. So Give it a chance you'll enjoy it if you like sci-fi and the world of what if it creates.
I like how Bobby Adair makes his heroes so fallible and generally normal. They're not perfect people, they're flawed in serious ways, they feel anger and despair. They're not cookie cutter heroes, but they rise to the challenge.
I especially have to say, the author's sense of humor with the encore at the end of the book was really quite amusing.
Bobby spins a tale as exciting as only a war with aliens can be, and as thrilling as the intrigue and action of a Jack Ryan novel. His characters are realistic and anti- heroic stumbling brilliantly through the plots and lives of a defeated and degraded species. The action is good and the story progresses awkwardly through our clueless heroes. Ordinary people doing extraordinary feats of fear-driven heroics.
I know you'll enjoy this sci-fi post-apocalyptic dystopian future as much as I did. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
Furthermore the characters are likeable and relatable
I really recommend this book, hell the whole series because I don't see how Adair can screw it up! He has done jewel after jewel!
