"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.

While all of this is happening, Jennifer Smith is getting acquainted with very handsome Ryan Edwards. He is a student at the college she attends and a trustworthy guy. Her uncle is one of Ryan's professors and Ryan frequently helps him with things. Ryan has had a complicated past and doesn't trust others easily, but he really likes Jennifer. Things get complicated when Jennifer's ex shows up in town again. Things get downright dangerous when one of Ryan and Jennifer's friends is almost beaten to death by one of the men looking for the special sunflower seeds grown on her family's farm.
This was a very fascinating book! It seems like it would be mostly a romance, but it actually is not. There is a lot of action and danger to this book and the romance part balances it out well. The story line about sunflower seeds being genetically modified for use in regular car engines and such is very interesting! It would be very dangerous indeed to hold the key to a world energy crisis. Huge companies that produced oil and such would not want that type of competition and people could get hurt, which is what happens in the book. I love the scientific element to it!
