25 Life Lessons from Racqui the Flying Squirrel Kindle Edition
"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.

Like THE LITTLE PRINCE (which makes an appearance in Life Lesson #2), 25 LIFE LESSONS is a book that can be read at different levels. At the most basic level, like the French classic just mentioned, it is pure—whimsical—entertainment, with some informative natural science material thrown into the mix. Moving up a level, this is a kind of handbook for daily living, both practical and spiritual, which fans of classics like the late Stephen Covey's 7 HABITS would probably enjoy. At its highest and most meaningful level, LESSONS represents an argument for the merits of reaching out to understand and appreciate the unfamiliar.
Why is this big deal? Because it has important implications with regard to addressing most of what ails the world today. Just think about it: if the approach being advocated were implemented to any serious extent, that would certainly go a long way toward reducing the prejudice, conflict and strife that is at the root of so much suffering. There would also be a positive impact on the environment, with more people attuned to the value of nature.
As a kind of allegory that is both simple and powerful, this is a book with life-changing potential.
The book also delves into the squirrel's anatomy, natural behavior towards rearing young ones, fight or fright situations etc. in a simple scientific way.
With the world so filled with such negativity, it is certainly comforting to read such an upbeat story. I highly recommend this ebook!
