"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 loved the interview format, and the bits and pieces of poets' and authors' lives that I never knew about. I loved the funny interim pieces with Madame Delatour and the narrator. Although I'd come across and read almost all the authors/poets in the book, I learned something new or amusing about each of them, and I actually found one I now WANT to read!
Oh, and I REALLY appreciate it being set in Sydney, Australia. So few books I read are set in Australia and I love reading the ones that are :)
"So passionate! So elegantly written! I can't wait to see what Mr Shelly is like in person. And for the occasion I have prepared a plate of vegemite sandwiches."
I learned more about Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow which are my three main favorite classic authors. I had to fight myself when I had to put this down for work. Pick this book up, Classic Lovers, you won't regret it!
I wasn't quite sure what to expect at first, but once I got reading, I found it hard to put down (and I'm easily distracted!). Don't give it a second thought, read this!
