"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.

I thought this book was about finances and it was to some extent. The main point is that the less you need, the more rich you'll be. Also, know yourself well enough to make your life what you want it to be. She writes about how to save money, get rid of debt, how to examine the opportunity cost of every action you take, why using cash might be a better way to pay, and how not to buy crap you don't need.
Interestingly, more than finances, Anita talks about purpose, happiness, friendship and how to live a great life. She has a unique world view, like she's an outsider from a different planet trying to explain human/basic financial concepts to us earthlings. She tells us that we don't have to follow the status quo or the Joneses. She gives her unique perspective on how to live life with less, be happy and fill your time with what you enjoy.
This is a clear, easy to read, funny book that will make you smile often and burst out laughing more often than not. You'll think she's a little weird when she talks to her avatars, talks of her unhealthy obsession about Judge Judy, shares her dance moves and celebratory twerking episodes among other oddities.
The book is an honest account of one person's experience and a thought-provoking way to live a different kind of a life. The author writes in a humble, kind, helpful and clear way to help us make some big changes in our lives. You'll probably be richer after reading this book and more than likely, happier!
My favourite part was how she described interest as a robot that takes money away from you in the morning, if you're in debt, and returns it in the afternoon, if you invest. It made interest seem less fraught and more like something, or perhaps someone, you want on your side.
This was the first financial book I'd read that mentions embracing bicycles and vegetarianism for environmental reasons, which is true, but some readers may object because they don't want to feel guilty about their choices. She doesn't lecture anyone, and she certainly doesn't face-punch anyone like Mr. Money Mustache, but she makes her points in a few clear paragraphs.
I enjoyed reading this, and would recommend it as a clear and simple guide with good advice and cute financial avatars.
