"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.

Best read in the morning on the toilet! Read 3-4 pages, put it down. Now begin your day doing the things you knew you have to do to make this day better.
This book is worth 25 personal development books because the information is compressed and short. You know how some books are 200 pages but you can figure out everything you need to know from their title? (eg "Quit eating so much if you want to be slim!"). How to get a grip is just the opposite - short - so now instead of spending 5 hours to read a book, you can use the 5 hours to improve your life.
Bonus: book is filled with British humor, it's the most fun personal development book I ever read!
It helped me realising things and opened my eyes.
I guess this book is not for everyone, but it won't hurt anyone as well.
