"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


"This book is nothing less than a nuanced tour of the nonprofit sector. It is rich in the history and stories needed to make the journey lively. By using the prism of ethics it clears the underbrush used to duck questions about ethical behavior. In doing so it powerfully makes the case for ethical behavior among organizations and individuals in the nonprofit sector and the importance of this case as an example for the other two sectors of society." —Barry D. Gaberman, Senior Vice President, The Ford Foundation (Retired)

"This is a remarkable book. Unlike those that discuss the mechanics of fundraising or governance, The Nonprofit Challenge is the only one that discusses the obligations of the nonprofit community to society through the prism of ethics.  Ethical behavior is fundamentally important in the running of any organization, but – as Doug White describes—charities have a duty to behave ethically.  Because there is much work to be done before charities fulfill their special promise, Doug White’s message ought to resonate in boardrooms and executive offices at every charity in the world."  —Dame Stephanie Shirley, The British Government's Founding Ambassador for Philanthropy

"This is an unsettling portrait of the world of charities in the United States in which virtually every problem of significance derives from ethical failure.  Doug White also provides an authoritative, how-to guide to informed giving."  —Albert C. Lasher, member of the Advisory Council, Bronfman Center on Jewish Life at New York University

"Inspiring, motivating, and a great book for any nonprofit leader or board member who truly cares about doing the right thing the right way."  —Wyndy Wilder Sloan, Director of Marketing & Communications, Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, graduate of the Masters program NYU's Heyman Center fo...
