"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.

"Neuropsychological rehabilitation of individuals with dementia is a very important, timely topic. By writing a book that provides details concerning a range of cognitive rehabilitation approaches that have been used with individuals who have dementia, clinical researchers may become motivated to develop randomized control studies to evaluate the effectiveness of these interventions in this increasing population." - Julie B. Hautamaki and Linda K. Laatsch, Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology
"This extraordinary book provides a thoughtful and practical framework for treatment of people with dementia. Over the years, what has passed for care of people suffering from this disorder has been a conglomeration of well-meaning, but ill-informed ideas; Clare demonstrates that we can do much better, and can do it now. Everyone who works with people with dementia and their families or has a concern for their well-being should read this book." - Steven H. Zarit, Professor and Head of the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, The Pennsylvania State University, USA
"This positive, practical book, shows how neuropsychological rehabilitation techniques can be effectively applied with people with dementia. Setting the work in a biopsychosocial context, Linda Clare moves smoothly from theory to clinical practice, the extensive use of case illustrations bringing to life the issues and interventions discussed. I recommend it." - Jonathan Evans, Professor of Applied Neuropsychology, University of Glasgow, UK
"… Linda Clare’s book Neuropsychological Rehabilitation and People With Dementia could not have been released at a more critical juncture… Truly a ‘handbook’ in every sense of the word, Neuropsychological Rehabilitation and People With Dementia offers a substantive, well-organized approach to an insidious disease… With this book, Clare offers the promise of new hope by focusing on what individuals with dementia still can do, not on what they have lost." - Carol A. Gosselink, PsycCRITIQUES
