"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.

The entire book needs a serious editing. There are typos throughout and many times appear to have had a "replace" done in the editing software that did not work properly... for instance, you often see things like: back in the eighties80's. There are a few areas where they edited some phrase and both phrases are still there as well. It's a bit annoying. Someone needs to go through it, find all that kind of mess and fix it.
If you don't like graphic sex, you'll find yourself a few times skipping ahead looking for it to end which is what I do.
The story itself is sort of interesting but waaaaaay too convoluted. Too many interested parties with unknown motivations. And too much thinking, too much talk about his ADD and how it makes him think random thoughts that we are all then bombarded with. There's too much driving around and nobody ever sleeping or eating yet somehow their reflexes are not muted at all.
I keep getting REALLY bored and in my head go yada yada yada and skip skip skip. Generally I read a book a day. I am on day 4 with this one. I am interested and will finish it.. I am at about 90% now... but dang. Hurry up and get to it.
Also, some things are just straight up dumb. The bad guys keep finding him.... he's using his own car and credit cards and rental cars that have GPS. Um... HELLO!!! Don't you watch TV or read? This includes a professional NCIS officer who uses her own car and cell phone and then is surprised they were able to track her down. She finally gets a burner phone then uses her mobile internet device on her personal lap top. Um... yeah, that's gonna help you stay hidden.
Otherwise, the story is interesting and you want to know who is behind it and what made it all happen.
Many twists and turns and action.
The past caught up with many in the end.
This author must think his readers are really not on the bright side since he felt the need to spell out some of the numbers and then write them too like this ' seventies70s , it was so very annoying.
I do recommend this book if your looking for an action packed suspense book and you don't mind some bad four letter words.
I won't continue on with the series, it's just not the kind of writing I enjoy, it gets too confusing.
Happy reading Ya'll..........
Another annoyance was the fact that this is book two of a series (which Sherer, the author does not let the reader forget). I realize that Sherer is trying to sell books here, but I didn't want to have to go back and read another book just to know what he's talking about when he makes reference to Blake's past (Blake is the protagonist).
I would give this book 3 1/2 stars if I could. Had it not been for the subtle annoyances already mentioned, I'd be more enthusiastic. Others may find them less bothersome. On the plus side, I liked Blake and Sherer did an excellent job of making him well-developed and sympathetic. He's a divorced former basketball player with ADHD who, having come down in the world, washes dishes and delivers newspapers. I enjoyed the plot and the story never lagged. The end was full of action and tied up all but one loose end (gotta leave the door open for a sequel). Not a bad book but it could have been better.
Sometimes less is more. His mastery of the English language is all that makes this story bearable.
