"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


"'Open Source Psychiatry' provides the kind of pleasure and glittering insights one might derive across a series of memorable visits with a generous and exuberant mentor. Sharing his wide-ranging wisdom, at once scholarly and practical, Dr. Soskin delivers smartphrases, playlists and poetry, tips for curating the medical literature and writing notes, and insights about the internet and the history of psychopharmacology with creativity, humility and warmth. The book defies classification; Open Source Psychiatry is a trove of ideas related to the science and art of psychiatry from which delighted readers are free to discover their treasures.""
Jonathan E. Alpert MD PhD; 
Dorothy and Marty Silverman Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences; Professor of Psychiatry, Neuroscience and Pediatrics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center
"Dr. David Soskin bubbles over with insight and creative approaches to clinical and scientific problems. He is Mozartean in the sparkling flow of well-formed ideas that pour from him."
Alexander J. Bodkin, MD; 
Chief of the Clinical Psychopharmacology Research Program, McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School
"The adjective 'unique' is often misused or overused, but Dr. David Soskin's book truly is unique. What other single source of information covers topics ranging from the therapeutic use of lithium to the songs of Joni Mitchell to the art of writing a psychiatric note? And that's just the start. It is clear that Dr. Soskin sees psychiatry from a broad, humanistic perspective, in which science and art, pharmacology and poetry, mingle comfortably and enlighten synergistically."
Ronald W. Pies, MD; Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus, SUNY Upstate Medical University; Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Tufts U. School of Medicine
"Open Source Psychiatry opens its readers mind to the effects of psychiatric illness on preventing humanity from achieving its full potential.  It enlightens patients and clinicians to explore the  limitless resources that digital and internet technologies could offer for treating  and reversing the ravages of mental illness. Dr. Soskin is sailing through the gentle and choppy waves of incorporating the latest psychopharmacological advances with creative poetry while reflecting the beauty of human spirit."
Hani R. Khouzam, MD; MPH
