"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.

About the Author
Nelson DeMille is also the author of Wild Fire, Night Fall, Up Country, The Lion's Game, Plum Island, Spencerville, The General's Daughter, The Charm School, Word of Honor, The Talbot Odyssey, Cathedral, By the Rivers of Babylon, and Mayday with Thomas Block. He lives on Long Island, New York.
The Long Island Gold Coast once held the greatest concentration of wealth and power in America. Mafia don Frank Bellarosa, a late-twentieth-century version of wealth and power, acquires the estate next to John Sutter, respected Wall Street tax lawyer. Like a moth to the flame, Sutter is drawn into Bellorosa's world. The story, first published in 1990, is told in Sutter's words, and Christian Rummel's narration is sterling. From the Gold Coast upper-crust accent known as "Locust Valley lockjaw" to the streetwise banter of the Mob, each character comes to life. Conversations between Sutter and Bellarosa are so realistic listeners may feel they're tied into a federal wiretap. With authentic settings and real people, THE GOLD COAST (now followed by a sequel, THE GATE HOUSE) provides an entertaining view of the sordid lives of the rich and famous. T.J.M.

The Gold Coast is a great story and contains the wit to keep it from becoming too dark. Even in our darkest hours, humans fall back on humor and this process is done with real talent in The Gold Coast. Oh, and the ending rocked!!
