"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. Loved. It. You had me at George Bailey. As a parent, this book renews my faith and hope for public education in America. The author offers an intimate look into his own life and the lives of his students, revealing the very qualities that make Mr. Bowen worthy of such an esteemed title of Teacher of the Year- his style is engaging, accessible, compassionate and humorous.
Our Kids: Building Relationships in the Classroom reads like fiction, tapping in to a range of emotions- and as a good book often does, it left me wanting more.
I would recommend this book to anyone involved in the field of education. A wonderful reminder to experienced teachers and a poignant view for those just starting out...I would also recommend this book to parents with young children. It is an opportunity to gain an understanding of the day to day experiences that take place everyday in America between children and teachers. The fortunate children have teachers like Chris Bowen in their lives.
Thank you, Chris Bowen, for sharing your stories, your insight and your passion for children. I hope you have many opportunities to influence the lives of teachers who need a nudge (or kick in the pants) to remind them of their first love.
The humor, and at times, sarcasm, made me laugh out loud, while the stories shared of those faces behind the statistics made me cry. Honestly, I'm exhausted. The book arrived today, and I read the entire book today. It was quite a ride.
I loved your students as I read your book because like you said, they are our children. Powerful stuff, Chris, powerful stuff!
Chris Bowen wrote a nice collection of stories that I can relate to as as parent. I can see how he won the title of Teacher of the Year and hope other teachers out there strive to deliver the same education to our kids.
I'm glad I downloaded Bowen's book and will recommend it to others. It would make a great gift for teachers as well.
