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

About the Author
Alejandro Moreno-Ramos is a full-time freelance English & French to (European) Spanish translator, living between Spain and France. He holds a MSc in Electromechanical Engineering and worked as an Energy Engineer for 5 years until he realized that he wanted a real job. He does only boring technical translations and happily works for not-so-evil translation agencies. His favorite areas of translation are: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Energy and Civil Engineering (you got it, he likes Engineering). When Crados crashes (not so often) and he gets too angry to continue translating, he takes a break and works on his dissertation in order to get a PhD in Electrical Engineering.

The book is composed of more than 200 comic strips, as well as 13 articles written by well-known translators. Although the cover is in color, the interior is black and white. Also note that almost half of the strips are available on the Internet.
This is the first volume of a series, and was published “as a hobby”, after my blog enjoyed lots of attention. As a consequence, the book has two drawbacks:
1) The drawings are very simple. Note that the second volume has better drawings, and the third one has much better drawings, since I began collaborating with a professional illustrator, Santiago Astor.
2) The book has a number of English mistakes. These are due to several reasons, but the main one is that I am not an English native speaker myself and at that time I did not work with an editor. Note that the second volume has errors, too, but to a lesser degree. The third volume is even better edited.
I have received extremely good feedback over the years, and I hope you’ll enjoy the books. Selling them allows me to do this as a side job, so: thank you.
Although I used to ship Mox’s books myself for years, note that the books are only available at Amazon (USA, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Italy, Mexico) as of today (January 2018).
