"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.

Is this college level reading? No - it makes no pretense of that, nor should it. It is a light, engaging read that takes the reader on an enjoyable fantasy through he stars and battles and intrigues. To put unrealistic expectations on this genre of story telling is misplaced and misguided. These books are meant to entertain and engage with a light hand and make no pretense of subtle plots and sub plots, nor pretentious higher ideas and deeper philosophical ideas.
It is simply just a darn good read. Enjoy it in its' simplicity and raw form!
Ryk Brown has successfully tapped into that original style of creating a future that is believable, and filled with characters that are as astonished by there discoveries in outer space; as the readers were over 50 years ago (when space travel was beyond our capabilities.) By keeping the science tech simple enough to understand, yet clever enough to be believable, this author allows readers to once again feel the awe, and excitement that we first felt reading those futuristic fantasy tales, more then a half century ago!
Keep up the great work.. & thank you for allowing me to relive the excitement first experienced so long ago!!!
Fast moving engaging plot. The whole series is hard to put down. Characters are a little stereotypical and the setting feels a little like the J.J. Abrams Star Trek Reboot with it's inevitable plot holes and suspension of belief required, but don't let that stop you from reading it. If you are looking for award winning writing with realistic gritty characters and complex plot twists and turns then this is not the series for you. If your looking for an engaging light read and a little sci-fi escapism with fun characters, fast moving plot and a great story then this is worth looking at.
I love the unconventional publishing format. Series of small mini novels at a cheap price... If Amazon keeps coming up with authors and stories like these the traditional publishing industry is in serious trouble.
