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.

The book is written by the sister of the girls' mother. She was not at the cabin when the crime took place, but has had to deal with the aftermath.
The book begins strangely, with some sort of letter to the author's other sister and about how she will feel about the characterization of their mother. I tried to understand it, but it rambles and is clearly only meant for that sister's eyes.
The rest of the book bounces around between what happened right before the murders, the author's issues in her own marriage, and the aftermath.I don't know if there was an editor involved in this publication. This does not seem to be the case. The story kept circling a point, never quite getting there, and then would veer off into another direction.
I cannot recommend this.
I'm very glad I did because this book is rich with lessons in forgiveness, psychology, and familial relationships. The reader gets to know how the author was able to transform this seeming disaster into an enduring motivation to help others. The grisly detail was included and kept to a minimum, but enough to give this story its authenticity. This book is useful to all and particularly victims of all crimes, who struggle to make sense of it all. An inspiring read!
