"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.

I found Cawkwell's prose to be sub-par. I suspect that this, in part, is due to my own personal distaste for 3rd person omniscient, but overall the sentence structure read more like a draft than like a published piece. In addition, there were JUST enough typos or small errors to gnaw at me ("Goal" for "Gaol", and the like). Obviously spell-checked, but could have used a manual second pass. Not terribly surprising from an indie author (and to a degree forgivable), but still frustrating.
Overall, I feel like this book would have been better either as LGBTQ Politics, or Politics Fantasy. The combination is messy, and feels to me as though it leaves all sides lacking. The 1800's Britain-inspired setting (Albon - Albion) provides an interesting playground for either of these options, but without a strong on-screen antagonist for either plotline they both wither.
