"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Losing the Cape describes a logical step-by-step process, and I particularly like the list of Action Points at the end of each section. Some such books describe interesting things which appear as no more than abstractions to engage or entertain the reader, leaving them to wonder how what has been described relates to them or their business. Whilst I’m sure Giles aims to educate and encourage, there can also be no doubt about what Giles recommends the reader to do! Furthermore he facilitates this, where appropriate, by providing links to downloadable templates (with worked examples) so some Action Points can be simply to ‘fill in the boxes’.
The problem is that the target cape-wearing reader is likely to be too busy to read this. I’m reminded of the cartoon illustrating the medieval king on the eve of battle saying he’s too busy to see any crazy salesman …so the salesman with the Gatling gun gets shown the door. I would urge any Caped Crusader to punt a few pounds and a few (valuable) minutes on reading the first couple of chapters. I’m confident they’ll soon be engaged and go on to read the rest, follow the advice, and realise that this is the highest-yielding business investment they’ve made.
