"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.

From the Publisher
This book is the first place winner in the 2001 Writers Digest National Self-Published Book Awards, Reference category. Their critique describes the book well: It is an attractive, professional looking book. The front and back covers do a good job telling potential readers what they will learn. It is nice that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Unicef. The first page visual index is a good idea. Also clever and useful are the last minute, no sew costume ideas. The book is well organized and well thought out. The photography is of good quality and quite cute. The layout is attractive. Her instructions and tips are clear and concise. She does a quite thorough job telling readers exactly what they need, shortcuts, and step-by-step instructions, all in a friendly manner. Im impressed by the amount of work it took to produce this book, and with all the authors experience. The author obviously has put a great deal of effort and time into this project, and! her expertise and passion for the subject are evident throughout.

This book is wonderful for inspiring creative imagination and the costume tips and patterns ARE easy and versatile enough for you to whip up an original costume with very simple inexpensive ingredients or with whatever you have in the house even at the very last minute!
I am very proud of Sam, who after much gleeful "study" of this book with his sister, decided to make his own costume modifying one of the ideas in this book - how satisfying for him to march in his school costume parade wearing an original costume that started from an idea from this book and made pretty much all by himself (hey, no sewing, or even glue gun needed for that one!) I'm sure we will get lots more year round dress-up inspiration from this truly "Illegally Easy Halloween Costumes for Kids" book to come... my mind is already brewing up some winter dress-up Birthday Party ideas!
