"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.

Editorial Reviews


"...Engaging work of literary fiction based around the intertwining lives of three female friends in New York. The massive black hole of the title is a reference to the Pseudo-Bosch painting Christ's Descent into Hell which is a major motif in the story.  The author cites fellow Brazilian author Paulo Coelho as a major influence and it is evident in this novel with its narrative that wanders from the sacred to the mundane to the highly figurative." - Mercia McMahon, writer

"Takes the reader into the minds and lives of two shallow, bitter, evil-minded women whose attitudes send them spiraling towards their own destruction, leaving pain and suffering in their wake. It is nearly impossible to really like either of these two women- they are nasty, cruel, bitter, shallow people who seem to go out of their way to make themselves unlikeable, but at the same time Barbosa does a masterful job of drawing her readers into these characters and their lives, making them real people, not caricatures, women who had choices and could have become someone better." -

"As a former crisis/school counselor, this was a great book for me to read. Homeless & transients can be quite challenging to work with. Great story line, kind of a psychological thriller, quite a few unexpected twist/turns, never a dull moment & great characters. Might even make a great movie. I ended up giving it a rating of 5 stars." - Tony Parsons MSW

"Barbosa's contemporary fiction novel is sometimes reminiscent of Jean-Paul Sartre's existentialist play, No Exit. This is a dark and unsettling novel filled with contradictions and the ever-present abyss.
Massive Black Hole gives the reader lots to think about." - Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite
