"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.

Where will everyone sleep? There are bunk beds on front and back porches, in tree houses, out in the garage, etc. Maybelle has to find room for all of the kin. And Mabel keeps promising to come home to help but somehow she never quite makes it. Her boss just needs her too much at work. Yeah, right.
The book wasn't quite as funny as I had expected from the reviews, but still made me smile and maybe even chuckle a couple of times. I wish there could have been more dialogue between the characters but since it was written as letters there were limits and delays in communication. All in all, a pretty good book.
Mable had left town to pursue a career with a future while Maybelle stayed in their hometown to pursue a future in general. Although geographically separated, the sisters do their best to wrangle their kinsfolk together to witness their parents renew their wedding vows on their anniversary -- or possibly have an officially sanctioned wedding for the first time. The book is a hilarious Southern romp complete with names even Faulkner would appreciate, gossipy townsfolk, floozy in-laws and moonshine.
Though the book was authored by two different people, each letter/chapter flows together flawlessly. I love this back-and-forth concept, and the short, snappy chapters that I can finish during a coffee break or stint in the school pick-up line. Will MayBell and Mable be able to pull off the reunion/anniversary/vowel renewal? I won't spoil your surprise. Grab a copy for yourself - and your wacky sister!
She generously sent me the Pdf of this hilarious book!
There is an immediate bond discovered by the reader with these sisters!
There isn't a moment that the real pain of belly laughs won't get you
reading this down home story!
It believe I suffered a hernia and I'm not a third of the way through reading it!
The characters are hilarious, their names even more so!
Honestly, you will be holding your belly trying to hold in
the laughter by the time you get to the second page!
Laughter is the best medicine and this author pulled me out of deep depression within minutes!
Thank you Wanda, if I could send you flowers with this review I would!
Move over Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall, because Wanda Argersinger and Jody Worsham are taking Southern Humor into uncharted territory. Their characters need absolutely no introduction because every Southerner worth their grits has already met them, loved them, reassured them, threatened them, or bailed them out of either the jailhouse or the asylum. These ladies provide a refreshing burst of humor, page after page, that leaves the reader wondering just what, exactly, they're going to get into next.
Don't pass up the chance to live life through the eyes of these two truly talented, and hysterical, writers. I can't wait for Volume 2.
