"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

`If you want an introduction to the man and his music, you should read this charming and enthusiastic volume by John Gribbin.' -- Daily Express 'Buddy Holly and The Crickets had an electrifying effect on us as young lads in Liverpool ... things would definitely not have been the same without his huge talent. Love ya' Buddy!' -- Paul McCartney 'Buddy Holly and The Crickets had an electrifying effect on us as young lads in Liverpool. We were inspired to learn guitar by seeing him on television and listening to his records. `That'll Be The Day' blew our minds and Lord knows how long we took trying to learn the opening riff. His guitar and vocal style was massively influential on us as writers and players and things would definitely not have been the same without his huge talent. Love ya' Buddy! P.S. The name of his band, The Crickets, also influenced our choice of band name so those boys have a lot to answer for!' -- Paul McCartney `This new book provides the excuse to keep Holly's music-making memory and influences alive.' -- Screentrade Magazine
