"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.

Good characters, exciting plot, and so-so editing. What more could you really want in an action-packed romp through the universe?
I've already purchased four additional books and look forward to more frolicsome, deadly swashbuckling as well as, given the emergent working relationship with the Eshquarian Dalton, occasional future encounters involving Captains Burke and Colleren. I foresee my biggest problem may be avoiding spoilers from fellow fans of this series.
In parting, offering full disclosure to potential nitpickers, I did notice more than a few typos - because I read every word, often going back when I realized I was getting ahead of myself - and they didn't' detract or distract from my enjoyment.
I'll have to admit, at first I was groaning rather badly when I began the story, filled as it is with plot points from other scifi venues on tv. However, while the team created in the book is, like other reviewers have noted, reminiscent of the "A-Team," there is still enough fun to be culled from the varying perspectives brought in to make reading pleasurable even as the plot twists are rather non-intriguing. The human captain, lost as he is in a universe and crew of non-human beings, seems desperate to maintain some semblance of the earth-home he no longer has access to and this comes across in the writing. The seemingly silly human cursing and usage of culturally specific allusions serve to remind the reader of the very real angst living in such a world would bring up. That the crew attempts to mimic is endearing if a little odd at times. All in all the story moves along at a nice clip, pushed along nicely by quick dialogue, a minimum of world-building and some pretty fun action scenes. A good easy way to drift away for a few hours.
