"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

In Andy’s accessible, matter-of-fact first-person narrative, Poulsen explores a topic not often covered in teen fiction. (Booklist)

A worthwhile purchase for libraries looking to fill a niche. (School Library Journal)

Very highly recommended and certain to be an enduringly popular addition to both school and community library collections. (Midwest Review of Books)

Numbers is a deeply moving, nuanced, and fascinating depiction of how confusion and vulnerability can sometimes cause damages that can never be fully repaired. (Quill & Quire)

Poulsen did a good job with characterization, which was vital in order to explain how a Holocaust denier could come to hold such sway over his audience. (CM magazine)

Both as a nostalgic reminder of one's high school years and an inspiration to think thoroughly, independently, and compassionately, Numbers should be very close to number one on your reading list. (Bookpleasures.com)

A book about Holocaust denial . . . with a complex plot which will thoroughly engage teenage readers. (Jewish Book Council)

Numbers is a cautionary tale about the importance of questioning authority and demonstrates how easy it is to be swayed by charisma over facts — lessons which need to be re-learned over and over again from one generation to the next. (AJL Review)
