"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

Review

Gentle Discipline is a thorough guide to raising confident, capable children. Sarah Ockwell-Smith delivers valuable information and balances it nicely with practical and clear advice for implementing gentle discipline. This is a book that will remain by your bedside for reference for years to come." 
--Rebecca Eanes, author of Positive Parenting: An Essential Guide

"Any parent who wants to guide their children with more respect rather than govern them with fear will benefit from reading Gentle Discipline. If you want reduce power struggles and punishments and replace them with more connection and understanding, this is a great read."
--Jessica Joelle Alexander, co-author of The Danish Way of Parenting

 
“What I value most about Sarah Ockwell-Smith’s latest book is that it honors the struggles of both children and parents. She helps us see how understanding both sets of needs yields resolution and connection, which are not words we usually associate with discipline! Readers are treated not only to fascinating new discoveries about how children’s brains and behavior relate but also to the ‘ah-ha’ moments that parents most wish for during times of conflict with their children.”
--Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk, developmental psychologist, Honorary Fellow, University of Dundee
 
“In Gentle Discipline, Sarah Ockwell-Smith challenges us as parents to pause, take a step back, and understand why children behave the way they do, so that we can make respectful and effective parenting choices… Congratulations, Sarah, this is a comprehensive, pragmatic, and common-sense approach to redefining what it means to discipline our children. Children all over the world will be thanking you!”
--Tracy Gillett, writer, mother, and founder of Raised Good


"The beauty of Ockwell-Smith’s guidance: She’s low on judgment and high on helpful insights into why your kid can go from angel to monster in 10 seconds flat."
--Bookpage


 
Praise for Sarah Ockwell-Smith
 
“I love the way Sarah breaks the concept down into clear guidelines -- without being strident about one right way to be a parent -- and the way she addresses the challenge of shifting from mainstream parenting to more gentle ways. The world can be a harsh place; families don't have to be." 
--Lawrence J. Cohen, PhD, author of Playful Parenting
 
“Provides a welcome antidote to the storm of advice that so often overwhelms new parents.”
--Dr. Laura Markham, author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids
