"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.

I purchased this more as a reference book. I wanted to be able to quickly look up the syntax for things like mysqi prepared statements. I would have liked to see some appendices, or cheat sheets with syntax. I couldn't even find anything about prepared statements in the book. And that's something I expected to find at least in the index. When I wanted to find out how to write a case statement, I checked the index for the word Case and the only thing found is Case-sensitivity. I also expected to find links to string modification syntax under Case, like strtouppercase. I know, you can always Google that stuff. But I have a repetitive stress injury-the point of getting a book was to try to be able to spend less time on the computer and more time on paper. So for my special needs it isn't a great fit.
