"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.

"A heartwarming story about inner-city kids who bond with a band of forgotten race horses. Jesse Joshua Watson's realistic illustrations combine with Neri's gritty street language to make a powerful story. The rhythm of the writing, the smells and sounds of the neighborhood, the developing relationship between a boy and his estranged father add up to an appealing novel, especially for an under-written-for segment of young male readers." -Christian Science Monitor
"Boys and their attachment horses haven't garnered this much attention since the good old days of The Black Stallion. There's an honesty to Neri's writing that kids are going to respond to. They'll discover a book that speaks to them. Inspiration comes from funny places sometimes. Wherever it comes from, though, it's worth it in the end. Because if there's one thing Neri does well it's tell a tale that needs to be told. Definitely recommended for everyone." - Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal
