"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.

ENJOY THE BOOK. I did!
Many successful entrepreneurs have never finished college or even attended. A degree has its place but it is NOT all important. The people that think that the degree is all important are the ones that have degrees and push degrees as the only way to be successful. SAT scores GRE scores etc. are ALL just gate keepers for universities and money makers for that particular business. It is NOT necessary to got to a college or university to learn as the information is available everywhere now. A degree may be a requirement for getting in the interview process BUT experience and the ability to think outside the box is a much better indication of job performance.
Have not read her book but will order and read interview on NPR alerted me to the book.
I was lucky enough to receive Ms. Jones's advice when she spoke to a standing-room-only crowd at our Boston area high school. For those not so lucky, you can obtain the advice in her book, coauthored with pediatrician Kenneth R. Ginsburg.
Parents - and their children - will benefit from Jones's advice for two reasons: 1. Jones explains WHY current parents are so hyper about the admissions process (partly due to the fact that we parents are from the generation which mistakenly believes we can accomplish anything!) 2. And Jones gives practical advice on HOW each parent can reduce their child's stress in the admission process, including actions that can be easily implement right away.
Every parent of a high school junior or senior should buy her book today.
