"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.

Now I admit to being a poor student. I need to *see* every detail about a hands-on operation, such as guitar playing, before I can absorb it and get my own fingers to do what they are supposed to do. It's like learning to use a computer. Printed instructions that are all text, that tell you what to do in words, can leave you not knowing what icon to click on or which key to press. That's why *pictures* and even videos are incorporated into every good computer instruction book. Pictures make the difference between a good book and an excellent book.
So I went back to the introduction and saw that I had to go to a particular website to see videos on that subject. I thought "the videos will show me exactly what to do." I happily went there and found many videos, one for each of the tunes in the book. Unfortunately, I found that, even though the videos are well produced, they don't get close up enough for me to see where the fingers and fingernails are actually touching the strings. Now, if I had a real instructor sitting down with me, I would be able to peer under his hand to see his fingertips and how they are touching and plucking the strings, and in precisely what order. But the videos that I saw do not get up close enough for me to do that.
So, the only reason I have for not giving this book five stars is that the videos are not close-up and detailed enough to instruct me how to place my fingers and fingernails on the strings, and in what order. If you have the ability to imagine what I cannot, then this book will be an excellent one for you on this subject.
I'm working on chords and some simple pics this week and learning on Christmas Carols makes tuning my "ear" all that much easier.
