"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

"New York may be underwater, but it's better than ever."―The New Yorker

"Relevant and essential."―Bloomberg Businessweek

"Science fiction is threaded everywhere through culture nowadays, and it would take an act of critical myopia to miss the fact that Robinson is one of the world's finest working novelists, in any genre. New York 2140 is a towering novel about a genuinely grave threat to civilisation."―Guardian

"An exploration of human resilience in the face of extreme pressure...starkly beautiful and fundamentally optimistic visions of technological and social change in the face of some of the worst devastation we might bring upon ourselves."― The Conversation

"As much a critique of contemporary capitalism, social mores and timeless human foibles, this energetic, multi-layered narrative is also a model of visionary worldbuilding."―RT Book Reviews (Top Pick!)

"The thriller Robinson unspools in that flooded city is gripping on its own merits. But it's the radical imagination of the book that makes it so hard to put down."―Business Insider

"Massively enjoyable"―The Washington Post

"Robinson has established himself as the great humanist of speculative fiction."―Village Voice

"A thoroughly enjoyable exercise in worldbuilding, written with a cleareyed love for the city's past, present, and future."―Kirkus

"The tale is one of adventure, intrigue, relationships, and market forces.... The individual threads weave together into a complex story well worth the read."
