"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 the Back Cover

When a motorist moves to France, the administration allows you only one year to get a French driver's license, called a 'permis de conduire.'  What they don't tell you is that it's impossible.

Even for those born and raised in France, there's no way to complete the whole process from beginning to end in 12 months, if at all.  I know, because I've been going through the ordeal for... a decade!  And I already knew how to drive to begin with!!  I've been driving with a valid California driver's license for more than 20 years!!!

This is a back-to-school story.  It's about repeat effort, for compliance's sake, by a regular Joe working stiff, far from home.  It's learning how to cope with governments, with ego, with humor.  It's about crazy circumstances, unexpected characters, and a long-term expat who never completely adapts.  This is not A Year in Provence.  This is A Decade on the Péripherique onramp!

About the Author

A little about the author, after graduating with a journalism degree, Joe Start jumped over to the advertising and marketing side of communications.  His day job has been selling media and technology in the US and Europe for more than a dozen years, lately with startups.  This is his return to writing, with his first book.  

It won't be his last, so please drive over to StartGoingPlaces dot com to add your name to his mailing list.  You'll learn about what's next, his next appearances and check out the bonus material from this book.  Please let him know what you thought on Goodreads, and help guide others in their deliberations by reviewing on Amazon.
