"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.

About the Author
Born in 1972, Charles Matthews is a respected member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. In his off hours from his primary profession in the bio-tech industry, Charles is busy writing short stories and developing fresh concepts for his next book project. His wife and three daughters are an essential writing tool for their honest feedback to his latest ideas. Charles' philosophy in story-telling is to limit the predictability factor by allowing his characters to be regular people with real human faults. He currently resides in Maryland where he is working on the next installment to The Pinesport Divide saga.

"Pinesport Divide" has a great premise, but doesn't go beyond that. The book is too long at almost four hundred pages, when the story could have been told in under two hundred. The dialogue makes the characters seem cartoonish. I couldn't connect to the main character, or any others. The book is confusing at times, and suffers from too much telling and not enough showing.
Just like any great author, Charles Matthews has managed to capture my mind and keep my reeled in for the entire book. I had a lot of trouble putting the book down, because I wanted to know what was going to happen next!
I really applaud Charles Matthews for writing something that basically everyone can enjoy - adults, teens, & tweens - alike. I just recently finished reading Pinesport Divide. My 17 year old daughter is reading it now, and my 15 year old son wants it next. After that, it's my 11 year old daughter's turn.
I highly recommend this book.
