"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

Review

"Mister B is the 2016 Pinnacle Achievement Award Winner in the category of Memoir." -- NABE "This is a book - and a man - you won't forget. Mr. B is quite the character! I often found myself laughing out loud. I felt like the Byks were my neighbors by the end of the book, and I received a basic education in rocket science as well! Lynn Byk's interactions with his stories are genuine and insightful. I was enthralled right to the end. Actually, there isn't an 'end' since Mister B continues to interact and challenge with his questions and idiosyncrasies." __ Sue Lockwood Summers, teacher/author of: Changing the World through Media Education, and Get Them Thinking! "I laughed and cried reading Mister B. The tragedy that put these three folks together may be something that displaced families around the world have felt, but the combination of characters in the book, and the juxtaposition of cultures in spiritual corners, made this memoir explode for me. This is a must read for anyone who has ever struggled with bridging generational gaps. It's a must read for anyone involved in family relationships. The time spent reading Mr. B. is time well spent." __ Verified Amazon Purchaser "I had no idea how the space industry began. Seriously?! Fascinating that at 98, a person can be so compelling! Great read for my students too. - extremely enjoyable." (Verified Paperback Reader)

From the Inside Flap

For curiosity seekers of aerospace and structural science, how did it all start? Greatest Generation story lovers, Cold War, and World War II hounds, as well as family members caring for aging parents, think Mister B is a national treasure.
